Personal Training 

Designed for Athletes

Primal's Sports Performance Small Group Personal Training is designed with athletes in mind. Whether you play team sports or solo, whether you play ball sports or track & field and whether you're a pro, semi-pro or hobby athlete, we'll help you reach your full potential. You'll get a full assessment, performance test, personalised programme and 2 or 3 small group training sessions per week, in which you'll learn to run faster, jump higher, leap farther and watch your performance skyrocket on the field, court, track or pitch. 

Does Any Of The Following Sound Like You?

You want to run faster, jump higher, leap farther, hit harder and stay injury free.

You're getting bored with the same old drills and exercises.

You're fed up with PTs who don't understand the intricacies of athletic training.

You're tired of pain or weakness hampering your progress.

You'd like the support and camaraderie of working in a focused group of athletes, all dedicated to improving their sports performance?

We understand your frustrations! Our Sports Performance Coach Mat Cook is a former athlete himself, so he's been through exactly what you're going through. We’ve helped many athletes just like you, to reach their optimum performance levels, from team sport players (including hockey, netball, rugby, football, cricket, lacrosse and ultimate frisbee) to individual athletes (such as golfers, boxers, kickboxers, tennis players and marathon runners).


Adel Hockey

"After numerous stints of back pain I was seriously considering giving up playing hockey, until Mat and the Primal SGPT programme came along. He has not only cured my back issues but also made me stronger, faster and more mobile. Mat really spent the time studying hockey and designing a specialised programme for me, focusing on agility, speed and strength to improve my game. The most valuable parts of being an SGPT member are the amazing family dynamic, the 3-month programmes that keep training fresh and the introduction of a proper stretching and conditioning regime, preventing future injuries. Due to Mat's hard work and perseverance, I have not only been able to continue playing, but I have progressed into my club's first team, playing in the North of England Division - something that never seemed possible a year ago. I would highly recommend the programme to any athlete who wants to improve their performance and is sick of mundane gym classes."

Leeds and Yorkshire Lacrosse

"Primal is like no other gym I've been to. The coaching and sense of community are second to none. There is a competitive atmosphere in the performance SGPT groups and it's great to train with athletes that have the same goals as you. The results speak for themselves - Mat has improved my sprint technique, helping me to fully extend and I'm now running faster, jumping higher and farther, lifting heavier and changing direction faster, all while losing 6kg of fat! All this has transferred to my game and has helped me to get selected for Yorkshire Men's Lacrosse this year, competing against national sides including Spain and Wales."

Does it matter what sport I am doing?

No, not at all. The fundamentals of sports performance are largely the same across the board; improving strength, power, speed, agility, coordination and mindfulness, with specific tweaks depending on the sport. Our expert athletics coach will utilise the latest science and methodology to ensure you improve in whichever sport you play.

I'm struggling with injuries, can I still do SGPT?

At Primal, we specialise in functional assessment and injury rehabilitation. If, after your assessment, we don't feel you're ready to start SGPT, we can design a rehab programme for you to get you back up and running. If your injury is more of a niggle, we can address this in your programme to ensure your performance improves whilst repairing the problem. 

When are the sessions? And how do I book them?

We currently have a choice of eight Performance SGPT sessions on our timetable each week, covering mornings and evenings, so you should be able to find some times that work for you, but we are prepared to be flexible if our clients need more sessions at different times. You simply book into the sessions using the Primal Gym app or online timetable.

How does this differ from other gym programmes?

Put simply: we know our stuff! As well as having a background in sports himself, our athletics coach Mat is constantly studying all the latest research around sports training and applying it to his clients, enabling you to stay one step ahead of your competitors. Forget boring, monotonous drills - your training will always be fun, engaging and keep you on your toes. 

What happens in the training sessions?

Each session varies depending on potential games you have that weekend, in a month's time or a year's time, but generally a week will consist of a balance of sprinting, change of direction/agility, plyometrics, strength training, conditioning, and recovery strategies, such as mobility work and breathing techniques.

How will I know if I'm improving?

If you stick to your programme, the improvements will be obvious when you play your sport - you'll be scoring more points, losing defenders more easily etc. But we'll also do plenty of testing in the gym using equipment such as timing gates and jumping mats, and recording lots of other stats and measurements to track progress. 


Reading Ultimate Frisbee

"Before joining Primal I struggled to keep a solid gym routine, I got bored of the programmes I'd been given, I wasn't confident with the exercises or being in the gym, and I wasn't seeing many benefits. Primal has broken all these barriers. Mat is a fantastic personal trainer, coach and friend. His programmes are tailored specifically to our individual sports and never become repetitive. I've only been training at Primal for 7 months, to help me prepare for the World Ultimate Club Championships, and already I can run faster, jump higher, lift far heavier and can do 3 full chin ups in a row - something I wouldn't have managed on my own. I'm the fittest I've ever been, my play has noticeably improved and I often feel untouchable on the pitch. My team mates have actively commented on my performance."
