Bit O Red Team up with CrossFit Sligo

We have teamed up with CrossFit Sligo who have come on board as our Strength & Conditioning partner for the 2020 season.

As part of the partnership, our first team squad will use the facilities in Finnisklin Business Park and work with club strength and conditioning coach Tom French as well as the staff at CrossFit, who will be on hand to help with each session.

Rovers’ Strength and conditioning coach Tom French explains the benefits of the partnership.

“It’s fantastic to have a large space available to us with some top of the range equipment for the lads to use to help them build strength and help them improve their overall fitness, which ultimately makes them better players.

“We all know how far the game has come and it’s not just about on field work and preparations. This side of training is vitally important for a professional team and ultimately, we hope it improves performances and helps us get to where we want to be.

“The boys will still avail of the great facilities at Clayton Hotel for recovery sessions as well as some individual gym sessions, and it’s great to have a large space at CrossFit to help us train all the lads together as a team.”

Edel Fitzpatrick from CrossFit Sligo explains a little bit more about the partnership and the gym:

“CrossFit Sligo is proud to be the new training facility for Sligo Rovers. We have been working with the first team squad for a number of months now and we look forward to hosting them again in 2020 as they train throughout the season.

“Our gym offers experienced coaches who deliver quality programming for both the competitive athletes and those seeking a healthy lifestyle.  We pride ourselves on having state of the art equipment and are always looking at ways to improve to maintain a high level of training.

“Our main goal at CrossFit Sligo is to promote long term health and fitness in a fun and social environment.”

The first-team squad will attend CrossFit when pre-season training commences in early January and continue throughout the season in 2020.
