Gui Finkler is one of the hardest training players at Melbourne Victory and the adidas ambassador acknowledged supplementing the training system set up by Kevin Muscat with extra gym work is a big part of getting results on the pitch.
"We do most of the extra training at the gym," Finkler said.
While the players themselves manage most of the gym work, Finkler stated the fitness coach is readily involved to avoid any unintended mishaps.
"The fitness coach also helps to manage us in case we overlook something and get an injury," he said.
Finkler, as with many facets of his game, always strives to find a balance with his applied training and extra training. He is a massive proponent of a balanced lifestyle.
"Sometimes it's hard to find a balance, the older you get, the more excuses you have. You find that line and then you keep doing it."
So who does Finkler believe is one of the most dedicated Melbourne Victory player when it comes to extra training?
"Scotty Galloway, he's up there a lot in the gym!," Finkler joked. "I think all the boys are in there a fair bit, but him and Giancarlo [Gallifuoco], I think those two work pretty hard in the gym."
