How did Gaelic Football drive the development of RAMfit?
Gaelic Football is an extremely challenging sport involving kicking, carrying, passing, and hitting. The field is large, the action is relatively non-stop, and the physical combat involves hits similar to football or rugby with less protective gear than soccer players em-ploy.
On top of that, the rules require constant hand/eye co- ordination when handling the ball; players are not allowed to take more than three steps without releasing, bouncing, or “soloing” (kicking the ball into your own hands) the ball.
What does all this mean in terms of training requirements? It means that in order to be prepared for competition, you need to be well conditioned, strong, agile, coordinated, durable, and, above all, extremely tough both mentally and physically.
For these reasons, a Work and Recovery system was necessary. Enter RAMfit.
