Sports Complex at Weetwood Hall Estate
We are delighted to have an AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™ in the Sports Complex at Weetwood Hall. Developed with NASA technology, the AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™ improves and enhances athletic training and aids rehabilitation following injury.
AlterG® is a machine that combines precise partial weight-bearing exercises along with real-time gait analytics and video feedback, empowering people to defy the forces of gravity by moving in new ways and without pain. The pressurised air chamber reduces gravitational load, enabling patients and athletes to recover faster from injury and/or train better.
What are the benefits?
From athletes who are seeking to train smarter for peak performance to patients recovering from injury, the benefits of the AlterG® are wide-reaching and include:
We work closely with physiotherapists from local professional sports teams who can provide you with a training programme that is tailored exactly to your needs. The AlterG® is located in a private room which is also equipped with a hydraulic physiotherapy bed
Physiotherapists are welcome to hire the AlterG® for 30-minute private sessions. It’s ideal for athletes (eg: rugby, football, cricket, cycling, swimming, tennis), dancers (eg: ballet and contemporary), and patients recovering from spinal injuries and post-surgery.
We’re really grateful to be working with a great hotel like Weetwood, it’s a fantastic setting that will enhance the Mantality retreat program and the team there really do share our belief in what we’re aiming to achieve. If this first retreat is successful, we’d love to potentially look to hold them quarterly, which is exciting.
High Performance Coach
Weetwood Hall have been providing pre match facilities for both our league and union teams, it is a great space for our players to get together and into the right mind set ready for a match at Emerald Headingley Stadium. Additionally, the team have been kind enough to provide brilliant accommodation for our new players, staff and client whilst they are in the Leeds area. The staff are always professional and friendly, making our experience better than we could have ever imagined. We are looking forward to continuing and further building our relationship with Weetwood Hall through the Leeds Rhinos Foundation.
