Maximise your strengths and minimise your weaknesses

And that's sure what we did with Ethan Laird. Ethan came to us in the off-season with a clear aim to better his injury resilience in preparation for pre-season at Manchester United.

As an already high-level athlete, his physical qualities upon initial testing were certainly impressive. However, as with all of our clients, maximising strengths as well as minimising weaknesses is always key, as your strengths are often what set you aside from the rest!

See below a few of the tests that helped Ethan improve his power score by 19% in just a 4 week period of off-season!

  • Vertical jump - 46.6 to 50.5 cm
  • Single leg vertical jump - 24.9 to 30.7 cm and 24.8 to 30.1 cm (L & R)
  • Drop jump RSI - 3.8 to 4.1
  • Horizontal jump - 258 to 274 cm

Ethan also dialled in a KPI record 10.5 ms max sprint speed in one of his final off-season field sessions with us, which is still yet to be beaten!

I’ve worked with KPI closely every off season and throughout. They are really specific in tailoring exactly what my body needs to be the best athlete and player I can be. Attention to detail is second to none

Really good. The improvements you get in such a small time as long as you trust and stay consistent is great. I’m now on top of the stat boards which was never really a thing for me so really happy.

I’ve been working with Tom for almost 2 months now and throughout this time already I am starting to see the rewards not only off the pitch in the gym but on the pitch in my every day training schedule at the club.

The thing I liked most about working with Tom was his attention to detail - all the areas I asked him to help me with were addressed extensively and explained very clearly. It was clear to see how all the gym based exercises I did with him could translate to game-related movements/actions.

The best off season I've ever had, in terms of work load to getting educated on different aspects of training. Tom and Dan made it a really enjoyable work place on the pitch and in the gym.
