After completing my bachelor’s degree in Sports Science and Coaching, and my Masters in Strength and Conditioning (specialising in Sports Performance) in the UK, I joined West Bromwich Albion FC as their S&C coach supporting the academy which ranged from the U9’s to the U23’s. Additionally, I also provided support to other elite outfits including the Leicestershire County Cricket Club and Coventry FC Academy.
Aside from my extensive work within the elite competitive sports scene, I also enjoyed working with numerous strength and CrossFit gyms, providing individualised training programs for a diverse group of clients over the last 5 years.
My goal is always to implement fun but challenging programs and set achievable goals for my clients. With my extensive experience within the field and relevant research, I utilise monitoring tools commonly used in elite sport to identify weaknesses and strengths before developing a customized training program. I enjoy witnessing the positive effect of improved movement and well-being that translates into an overall better quality of life.
My favourite quote:
“Feel the pain of discipline or feel the pain of regret.” – This got me through many assignments in my University days.
My favourite cheat meal:
Take me out and find out ;)
My unknown talent:
I used to sing Tom Jones ‘Sex Bomb’ when I was a holiday rep for TUI in Corfu.
My biggest fear:
Spiders, wasps etc – any insect with a large body!
My self-motivation mantra:
If I’m suffering during a tough workout I tell myself that its only temporary and it will be over soon!
