I started working in strength and conditioning in August 2006 through an internship at Leicester Tigers rugby union. A year later I was offered a job with the club as an Academy Strength and Conditioning Coach and 6 months after was promoted to the first team. In January of 2008 I worked with England Saxons rugby union team on a consultancy basis. I continued to work with Leicester until September 2009.

In 2009 I started working with the Warrington Wolves rugby league club as Head of Strength and Conditioning, which I still hold to this present day. In October 2011 I also took on a part time role with England Rugby league as a Strength and Conditioning Coach.

In my career as a Strength and Conditioning Coach I have had the privilege to work with some successful teams. 

In 2007 and 2009 Leicester won the Guinness Premiership and reached the final in 2008, In 2007 Leicester won the LDV trophy. In 2007 and 2009 Leicester reached the European cup final. In 2010 Warrington won the Challenge cup and in 2011 won the league leaders shield.

Personal Nutrition

In my opinion nutrition is all about having a balanced diet, which include carbohydrates proteins and fats. On training days it is important to also supplement extra protein and carbohydrates around training with a window of 30 minutes post training.

Products Used

Omega 3 fish oils, instant oats, whey protein, Glutamine, Green powders

Key Insight

When training sports teams it is important to consider that the team is made of different personalities that require different motivational methods that allow them to perform at their best. Some people need to be told straight and others need talking up. Secondly, it is also important to work the athletes hard at the right times and also allow them to rest at the right times. Working an athlete hard all the time causes negative effects. Finally it also important to condition the athletes for the tasks they are going to perform in competition. In my eyes contact sport by nature is in-humane therefore this must be considered when prescribing training methods. The methods prescribed must produce results that allow the athlete to compete in the physical parameters of the sport. Pain is something that is embraced by the athlete in an almost perverse way. In my opinion you must perform unethical training methods to prepare an athlete for an in-humane sport when dealing with rugby league. However how sadistic it may seem the athletes would have it no other way.
