The Bond University High Performance Training Centre (HPTC) has been awarded a 2020 – 2023 Strength of America Award for its world-class strength and conditioning standards. The Bond HPTC also received the 2017 Strength of America Award.

Bond’s HPTC was the only Centre in Australia to receive this prestigious accolade, which is jointly awarded by the US National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) and the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition.

The award, which represents the gold standard in strength and conditioning programs, measured the HTPC on four key criteria: Supervision, Education, Program, and Facilities.

This Strength of America Award recognizes Bond for providing world-class strength and conditioning services at the Bond Institute of Health & Sport (BIHS), which is also home to leading research and programs in the disciplines of exercise and sports science, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and nutrition and dietetics.

Bond’s strength and conditioning programs assist young athletes from Bond Sport and the entire Gold Coast region to become the best they can be, by providing world-class, evidence-based practices, delivered by highly qualified professionals in a facility that is second to none.
