“This is the first international workshop by a world-renowned Strength and Conditioning Coach in Carlo Buzzichelli, who’s an author in Sports Science, consultant to numerous Olympic Programs and coach to Olympian medalists across the globe,” said organizer JP Manansala. “Typically, coaches need to fly to Manila and pay for accommodation, but now it’s a great boost for our program to actually learn from one of the best in the world who’s coming to Cebu and at SWU, nonetheless.”

This initiative is pursued jointly by SWU Phinma’s Athletic Department and the ISCI.

In the two-day workshop, participants will expect to learn the fundamentals of strength and conditioning, periodization, energy systems development, speed, agility, quickness and power development, prescription of strength exercises for athleticism, strategies for recovery and how to plan an annual program. Carlo will also be fielding questions from the participants.

SWU-Phinma athletic director Pio Solon said that this is the first time that an international strength and conditioning workshop is held in Cebu.

“The expected participants are aspiring strength and conditioning coaches, physical therapists, rehabilitation doctors, among others, “

The workshop is recognized worldwide, Solon added.
