At the beginning of the preparation for the 2015-2016 season, the players from FC Sion spent some time with the Swiss Olympic Medical Center of the Clinique romande de réadaptation (CRR) in order to assess their physical condition.
Even though the season starts very soon, these assessments are important and lead to an optimal preparation programme.
All the players are to be tested this Thursday and Friday by specialists from the sports medicine department of the CRR. These tests are taken individually and the results are then used by the staff to adapt the training programmes over the next few weeks. Tests carried out include: measuring body composition, jumping to assess strength and running on the running machine to assess endurance. All these tests are carried out in a friendly but serious atmosphere.
Do not forget, these types of test are also open to amateur athletes, interested in their physical fitness and wanting to do their sport in better conditions.
