“Have just recently completed my university placement at Accelerations Gold Coast centre and could not recommend it enough. The wealth of knowledge and kindness shared by all the performance coaches made my short time there very enjoyable. There most definitely is a great atmosphere set for the athletes to train hard and get the best results! Very impressed with how everything is organised.”

“My daughter joined Acceleration to regain her strength and agility after a long term injury. Without Acceleration she would not have had such a successful comeback and would probably be scared about getting injured again. She is now the fittest and strongest she’s ever been and is enjoying success in the sport she loves. She’s feels confidence in her body to perform and enjoys working with the team at Acceleration.”

“Both my boys have utilised Acceleration to work on agility, fitness and sport specific training. The trainers have put together training programs that work well for the athlete and also make it fun but challenging. As a Physiotherapist, I value the role of this program to help prepare young athletic bodies and minds for optimal sporting performance, enjoyment and less injury. Thank you for everything team!”
