About Yourself: 

As a sportsman and during university I had a keen interest in training physiology which led me to pursue work placements at three different professional football clubs. During this time I developed an interest in coaching science and started to combine both of these interests as a strength and conditioning coach, where I am now an accredited practitioner with the UKSCA. I’ve always worked as a multi-sport S&C coach, although in recent years have worked extensively in swimming with the City of Leeds Swimming Club and in a lead role with Swim England.

As a practitioner, I enjoy learning which training methods (e.g. strength, power, speed) are most important to different sports and bringing them to life through coaching. My approach to this is through enquiring with, and learning from coaches and athletes to form a complimentary training programme based on robust principles of training science.
