Improve your fitness and your game

One-on-one Personal Training for Polo can help you raise your handicap, play with more accuracy and power, be stable and safe on your horse, increase your endurance, stay injury free and enjoy the game more. Polo is an extremely physical game, relying on a complex and demanding chain of muscular movements for you to play to your highest level. It also requires good endurance, plus anaerobic power and toughness to fight off challenges. Agility and reaction speed are also essential components if you fancy yourself as a future Cambiaso. Fit for Polo Personal Training gives you the best possible chance of achieving and enjoying a great all-round game.

Many polo players start their training when they play their first match of the season, but in a sport this challenging, some targeted training both before and during the season will make a huge difference to your game and help keep you safe and injury free.
