Sussex Performance Centre

Introducing: Aarran Racine

I started playing professional football over ten years ago and I have worked closely with some of the top strength and conditioning coaches in the game. This has enabled me to gain a vast knowledge of training.

I began my professional career at Southampton at the age of 16 and have played over 200 games for York City, Torquay United and Forest Green Rovers. Whilst at Forest Green, I had the opportunity to captain them in the 2016 play-off final at Wembley. Throughout my playing career, I have always had a keen interest in health and fitness, especially as my job was to remain in top physical condition.

I suffered my first Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury in 2014, which led me to gain my personal training qualifications to give me a greater understanding of my rehabilitation training programme. During my rehabilitation, I began training several clients each working on various goals including marathon running, strength training and targeted weight loss.

Unfortunately in 2017 I suffered a second ACL injury which would end up keeping me out of the game for 15 months. During this time, I frequently went to Sussex Performance Centre for my rehabilitation and strength and conditioning programming.

I thoroughly enjoy training a diverse range of clients, from young athletes to older clientele, to help them achieve whatever their goals may be. I believe that it is important to have fun whilst training and working towards a specific goal. I aim to encourage you every step of the way and constantly challenge you with a diverse and structured training plan.

Alongside personal training, I run the SPC Youth programme, which have proved to be hugely successful with local children. This is something I aim to continue throughout 2021 to introduce aspiring youngsters to training techniques experienced during the professional game.

I’m looking forward to seeing all SPC Youth back this week!
