The alternative gift for the athletic dad this Father's Day

The total Father's Day performance package includes a specialist physiotherapist guided session on the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® and Wattbike - training and assessment kit used by elite athletes and NASA astronauts. Why not give your athletic dad a session under the guidance of specialist sports and rehabilitation physiotherapists, Lauren Bradshaw or Tom Quantrell, at Progress – The Cambridge Centre for Health & Performance.

  • To begin, the package will start with an in depth discussion about their general health, previous injury history and training goals
  • A full screening assessment will then be undertaken. This will look at general movement competency and may pick up on any areas that would be worth improving on to potentially reduce risk of injury or improve performance
  • There will then be a Watt Bike assessment. The assessment could entail a Functional Threshold Power Test (FTP) and take approximately 30 minutes if your dad is a cyclist looking to improve performance. Otherwise we can use the Watt Bike to distinguish left/right power discrepancies and analysis of pedal stroke
  • To finish, there will be an opportunity to have a session on the Alter-G antigravity treadmill

This Father's Day performance package will take 90 minutes and cost £99. It will take place at Progress – The Cambridge Centre for Health and Performance, Conqueror House, Vision Park, Chivers Way, Histon, Cambridge, CB2 9ZR.
