Sports Massage is a great way to support you on your health and fitness journey and our qualified Personal Trainers here at Sport Central are also qualified in Sports Massage.

Sports massage is a form of massage involving the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. Sports massage is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in soft tissue that are caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity. The application of sports massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.

Personal Training at Sport Central is the perfect supplement to your fitness membership that will ensure you hit your goals and stay motivated. Our trainers are also qualified in Sports Massage which is perfect if you need that extra help with recovery.
