Training with Technogym at The Campus
The Campus is used as an overseas training space for offseason or preseason athletes across a huge range of sports, he says. It’s perfect, with amazing equipment, brilliant facilities, and everything you need in one place.
Skillmill is an extraordinary equipment, he says. You can work as closely to your maximum threshold as possible and get some good work done. There’s so much a client can do on it, it’s not just a treadmill! You can use it as a deadmill, do lunges, bear crawls, the list goes on...
The long term plans for Parsons Include a high end private studio space, within a wellness centre, where clients get full support with recovery & nutrition fully equipped with Technogym cardio and strength equipment, with lots of natural light, and a focus on elite-level training for everyday clients and for athletes.
An Athlete’s Training Philosophy For The Everyday Client
Fitness can’t be a one size fits all thing, he explains. The best athletes take care of their training, nutrition, sleep, and recovery - that’s why they are at the top of their game. Approach your fitness like an athlete, and you will benefit, whatever your goal might be.
Danny Ings, who plays for Southampton Football Club, asked me to travel with him over the Summer,” explains Parsons. “We used Southampton’s training plan as a base and I added additional training to achieve his personal goals.
Last year, Parsons became supreme nutrition’s personal trainer & trained their ambassador athlete Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in his off season in Los Angeles.
Structuring An Athlete Workout
- Activation: Parsons starts with an activation phase, helping the athlete switch into training mode and focus on the mind/muscle connection.
- Mobility: Parsons places huge importance on mobility, especially lower backs and hips, setting the foundation for strength work. Mobility is equally important for day-to-day clients.
- Strength Phase: Parsons favours sets of 3 x 8 focusing on quads, hamstrings, and glutes for his footballer clients. A periodised approach is used for athletes and everyday clients.
- Cardio: Parsons leaves his athletes to do their cardio on the pitch, but will use cardio and interval training to build a foundation in the offseason. Day to day clients do conditioning work.
