GPC’s Geelong-based Support Network

GPC’s Geelong-based Support Network

GPC Squad are very proud of the network of practitioners and businesses we have connected with to support our athletes. Endurance athletes spend a lot of time and money on their training, but often neglect the one percenters like recovery, injury prevention & nutrition.

Within our personalised programs you have access to general strength & conditioning, core, stretching and nutrition advice. For a specialised approach we recommend seeing the experts. Below is a brief overview of GPC’s support network & how they can help you.
