What is 'retraining' ?

'Retraining' is short for rehabilitation training. This means that an athlete continues to train for his or her sport, even during the rehabilitation period. The rehabilitation period will no longer be a period of inactivity or inability, but become an opportunity for improving weaknesses and further development of the athlete. This however, is a very specific and individual process that needs to be closely monitored to obtain optimal results.


Why 'retraining' ?


  • Athlete in retraining = developing athlete
    Each athlete, independent from his sport, has set his goals. An athlete always wants to win, be faster, jump higher and become better. An injury however, is never part of the plan and although unwanted,  an athlete needs to change his goals. During retraining, we will keep working on the individual goals of the athlete in addition to strengthening the weaknesses so that the development of the athlete doesn’t stop.
  • Athlete in retraining = part of a team
    Injured athletes often lose their place on the team or feel lonely or sad. This applies to individual athletes as well. They feel alone, miss the training intensity and are hungry for competition. Therefore, retraining strives to closely approach the original training situation and aims to integrate the athlete as much as possible in the team. This implicates that retraining should happen at the club or in the normal environment of the athlete to avoid isolation and shorten the integration process after the rehabilitation.
  • Athlete in retraining = individual
    Each athlete has his own character, own motivation and his own profile. Retraining wants to approach the athlete in all these areas to optimally provide the athlete with trainingsolutions.
  • Athlete in retraining remains an athlete!!
    The primary goal of retraining will always be to offer the best possible training to the athlete in the given situation and train as specific as possible to create an athlete who is stronger, better and faster when he returns to play.

Retraining is an individual and sport specific process. It is important to work together with the trainer and the entourage of the athlete to create a retraining plan that optimally satisfies all the needs.
