CHUKKA WELLNESS – Fit for Polo Camp
Do you want to improve your polo play?
Would you love to have complete control in the saddle and play to your full potential?
Could your fitness, strength, flexibility or balance be holding you back?
Why not put an end to boring exercises and workouts and improve your health and fitness at one of our ‘GET FIT FOR POLO’ workshops?
The Argentina Polo Academy has joined forces with India, founder of Chukka Wellness to create a fun and enjoyable fitness weekend for players of all abilities.
Each session has been specifically designed to improve chukka play through correct nutrition and exercise with the focus on power, strength, flexibility and cardio fitness.
Not only will the workshop be entertaining and fun but educational too. India will be discussing how to correctly fuel your body pre and post chukka to ensure peak physical performance is maintained.
But don’t worry the workshop is not all work, there will be relaxing breaks where you can enjoy some typical Argentinian food and sun.
Each rider will be thoroughly assessed and each bespoke training session will include:
- A focus on mobility to improve swing range of motion and identify any potential weak areas
- Whole body strength and resistance exercises to improve motor skills and physical riding performance
- Core and balance work to improve ease and confidence of play
- Endurance fitness to ensure each rider has the ability to play at maximum for longer
- Bespoke nutritional breakdown for riders on and off the pitch to ensure the body is correctly fuelled for better play and recovery
