Sport Sciences students from US Program analyze the reality of Strength & Conditioning professional development in BeTraining


 

Students from US Program & Erasmus enrolled in the course of Strength & Conditioning at the Faculty of Sport Sciences of Catholic University of Valencia have visited BeTraining to know first-hand the reality of the professional field related to sports training and the prevention and treatment of injuries. Students had the opportunity to do a performance test named SPIROMETRY with a cycle ergometer and using a gas measurement to obtain some interesting parameters used in the control and evaluation of performance (VT1 or aerobic threshold, VT2 or anaerobic threshold and VO2max or maximum oxygen consumption. Rafa Martinez, former student from the Faculty of Sport Sciences of Catholic University of Valencia and one of the founders of BeTraining explained to the students all the protocol criteria and the usefulness of this procedure to evaluate athletes performance and to define training goals and objectives.

PhD. Florentino Huertas, responsible professor of this subject at the UCV stated that: “These type of activities carried out outside the classroom aim to facilitate the integration of the theoretical and practical content developed in the classes in a real context, trying to motivate students interested in this professional field”. In the same way it aims to offer an image of the quality of service provided by some former graduates from our university who are trying to consolidate offering a service of the highest quality in a highly competitive labor market.

Dr. Huertas, who is also the International Coordinator of the Faculty, highlighted the importance of conducting a visit like this, which serves the students to “contrast the theory lessons, with reality of the professional training context.” underlined the “high percentage of employability observed in our graduates in the field of strength & conditioning training.” This is an objective indicator of the quality of academic and personal formation received by the students trained at our university.”
