When Burnley FC built their new 1st team training facility at their Gawthorpe Training Ground in 2017 the Academy moved into the old 1st team training building.

The facility included a Strength and Conditioning facility that Perform Better had equipped for the Club 3 years earlier.

‘Alastair and the team at Perform Better have supported us over a number of years to ensure our Strength and Conditioning provision to our Academy players is of the highest quality. They have helped to ensure we are able to deliver longer term player development programmes and prepare young athletes for the physical demands of modern day football, most recently with an upgrade to our Academy facilities. We can’t recommended Perform Better enough.’

Alex Ouzounoglou - Head of Academy Sport Science


The Strength and Conditioning facility was equipped with a number of PB products some examples including Performance Squat stands, benches and a range of Functional Training equipment.

In 2020 Burnley’s Academy was awarded Category One status in the Premier League Academy EPPP programme- this led to increased investment in the Academy facilities.

In September 2020 Perform Better were selected to refurbish the Academy S and C facility- this included two compact half racks, Keiser functional trainer, dumbbells, kettlebells, Olympic bars and discs, Bosus and balance pads.
