The Advantage of Strength and Conditioning Training & Self-Care For Female Athletes
Athletes transitioning to the collegiate level face 3 massive challenges:
Michelle’s presentation will review strategies to best prepare you for these challenges.
I grew up in central Massachusetts where my interest for athletics and playing sports began. I played soccer and ran track at the collegiate level while studying Nutrition. After reflecting on my life passion for athletics and sports performance training, I decided to pursue a higher education degree in strength and conditioning (M.S.) and exercise physiology (PhD) at Springfield College (MA).
I have several years of professional experience as a strength and conditioning coach at a Division 1 institution working with a nationally ranked top 5 Women’s Ice Hockey team, a nationally ranked top 10 Men’s Ice Hockey team, and other teams including Field Hockey, Women’s Soccer, and Men’s Basketball. I then created my own company, Michelle Boland Training, in order to support others in achieving their performance and fitness goals to the best of my abilities.
Athletic success at the high school and collegiate level can be accelerated with improvements in a player’s cardiorespiratory fitness, speed, and change of direction abilities. Consistent strength and conditioning training can make the difference in your soccer performance.
