What is it?
The X has designed a roller derby specific training system for skaters of all levels to improve skill, strength and stamina for your game.
The system is coordinated with the roller derby competition calendar, so you’re able to develop and build strength without impacting your bout performance.
Skaters who use the system, undergo specific training to improve their ability to resist impacts, produce force and power, reduce likelihood of on track injury and of course be more agile and coordinated on the track.
The Derby Strong system draws upon the most beneficial training methods from some of the world’s most powerful sports, utilizing weightlifting and powerlifting techniques for strength and conditioning as well as aerobic work to help athletes improve their endurance on the track. As bouts near, all skaters are ‘de-loaded’ to rest them prior to the actual bout. All skaters are catered for as individuals, with certain movements and training modified or included to support their specific needs.
How do I start?
#Derbystrong Rookies! Skaters will attend two training sessions a week to start with, this process will take 8 weeks to complete. Participants will be evaluated for movement standards, coach-ability, movement and control, and of course the ability to integrate within the current derbystrong athletes.
Membership is $35 a week. If you cannot make the sessions, programmes can be sent to you to complete in your own time at the gym and train alone sessions are included in your membership. There are no contracts, no cancellation or pause fees. $60 set up fee applies.
What are the skaters saying?
“I first came to the X upon a recommendation from my friend and teammate after a serious injury; not only did Ben help me build strength and balance to skate again, he also developed a plan to become resilient against any potential injuries that can happen during a game. Ben has completely changed my outlook on how to use, train and harness my body and its power both on and off the track. If you want to up your derby game I can’t recommend Unbranded Strength enough!”~Peachy Keen #19 #derbystrong
“I came to Unbranded because I wasn’t getting what I needed elsewhere. Bny had me training to a program that suited my needs and my needs only. I love going to the gym as much as I love hitting the track and am twice as strong, fit & confident than when I started.” ~Kimodo Dragon #5050
“Since starting the derbystrong program, I have become so much stronger, both physically and mentally. The biggest benefits of the program are definitely improved performance on the track, though I have also noticed improved overall mobility off the track, which is a bonus because we all know how derby can #$%# up your body! Benny is a positive, supportive coach, and the sessions are always a lot of fun. We never repeat the same session twice, which means it always interesting. I never thought I’d be a gym junkie, but derbystrong has made me one!”
“I took up #derbystrong in March 2015 with the goal to strengthen my body following an 8 month absence from roller derby due to a rib injury. Not only did my body strengthen very rapidly, I thoroughly enjoyed the mix of movements and activities we do in the program focusing on strength, power and agility/ recovery. Benny is a great coach with a lot of technical expertise and who knows when to push you for more. I feel that my game has improved due to my confidence in my body’s ability to do things and my strength and power on the track have also been enhanced. #derbystrong is a fun and supportive place where people from both of Canberra’s leagues can train together, hang out and share the common goal of being the best they can be in roller derby. I strongly recommend this program to anyone looking to improve their game.”~Diazeslam #10mg
