BLOG Personal Trainer Profile: Christine Dorman

● Injury Prevention (You cannot play if you are injured)
● Incorporating strength, resistance and plyometric training greatly reduces the risk of injury
● Strength and Power
● Increase your strength and you increase your performance
● Increased strength results in an increased rate of force production which results in increased
acceleration, speed and ability to change direction.
● Correcting weakness
● Learning proper posture, knee drive, arm movement, landing mechanics and establishing fundamental movement patterns can help a good player become a great player
● Instilling confidence
● A confident player is a better player. When an athlete feels strong in their movement they
will be confident in their play
● Mental focus
● If an athlete is physically prepared for play they can focus on the mental and visual strategies of the game
