Athletic Development Program
Athletic Development Program Now Available for “Open Athletes” (18+)
The Integrated Bodies Athletic Development Program has been developed with over 10 years strength and conditioning experience working with athletes from all levels including high school, amateur, semi-professional, and professional; over a range of various sports including rugby league, rugby union, netball, basketball, hockey, swimming and more.
The implementation of this program in Mackay began in September of 2018. The primary market that was shouting for this solution was the youth athletic population. We are very proud of the impact we are having in this space on our youth members athletic endeavours and their character, but also the way strength and conditioning is thought about in our region.
Fast forward just over six months and Integrated Bodies is now excited to be opening this system up to the amateur/pre-elite/semi-professional adult sports people of our region.
The Integrated Bodies OPEN ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM will sought after the people in our catchment who have finished school and are still on the pursuit to continue playing sports weather that be competitively or socially. This program can increase your performance to support you to the next level, whilst also provide resilience to an ageing body so that being ‘too old for this’ doesn’t have to enter our vocabulary just yet.
Footy players, netballers, swimmers, riders, runner, and the weekend warriors this program is for you! We urge all the sports people of Mackay to investigate what we are doing here at Integrated Bodies, trial our system, and join our family and our OPEN ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM.
Our people, our purpose.
What does the Athletic Development Program (ADP) Involve?
A developmental thread based youth athletic development program that is competency-based and rewards effort, practice, and achievement.
Programming designed in line with the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association (ASCA) position stand on youth athletic development.
The program will educate the participants on how to efficiently absorb and produce force, as well as coaching them how to effectively coordinate movement through fundamental movement patterns.
The program consists of 3 face to face sessions per week that will involve all elements of athletic development. These three sessions are broken into three different strength days. Strength Days 1 & 2 will focus on traditional and priority athletic development components. While Strength Day 3 will focus on athletic movement skill development and coordination to assist with the transfer functional capacities to athletic performance.
All sessions will involve a warm up incorporating myofascial release, mobility, and activation, followed by three training complexes that are designed to improve strength, power, and reduce injury risk.
Individual programming updating based on participants movement competencies. Progression will be earnt through achievement, consistency, and hard work.
A monthly ranking system based on competency levels to support a challenging and competitive meritocracy approach.

Am I locked into a contract?
No, we don't do contracts. You're free to go at anytime however once we reach our capacity limits we will have a waiting list for sign-ups so if you do leave and wish to come back you'll unfortunately have to wait until a spot becomes available.
What happens if I get an injury, but I still want to train?
The program is designed to work within your limits, and if you are injured, we still want you to come in. Instead of worrying about what you can't do we will be focusing on what you can do! There will always be something for you to work on!
What sports will the ADP support best?
All sports. We have designed the program to be species-specific not sports specific. At the end of the day, all sports require the mastery of fundamental biomechanics and human movement. The best form of injury prevention is STRENGTH, so regardless if you are running back for the NFL team or a lawn bowls athlete our Athletic Development program will suit your sport.
