Strength and Conditioning

The University of Virginia Strength and Conditioning staff takes great pride in providing year-round strength and conditioning programs to all of its student-athletes.

The purpose of the Strength and Conditioning unit is to provide a comprehensive, sport-specific training program for all student-athletes. Each program focuses on many different components: strength, aerobic and anaerobic endurance, flexibility, coordination, speed, agility, and power.

In order for the University of Virginia to compete at a championship level annually, the staff works steadfastly to develop programs that integrate both the nutrition and sports medicine staffs. This cohesive relationship between the staffs ensures that student-athletes have every opportunity to maximize their performance potential.

Training Methodologies

All strength and conditioning programs encompass multiple sets, ground-based, multi-joint, free weight exercises. Student-athletes who train in this manner have the best opportunity to develop the components of athleticism.

Hours of Operation
