He has a first-class honours degree and an MSc in Sport & Exercise Science and is also certified as a Strength & Conditioning Specialist. In 2018 he completed the Redpill mentorship. Assessing movement and performance is his keen interest. He believes in applying the principles in all his practices.
In the past 10 years the industry has vastly improved and got more competitive resulting in better practitioners and more conscious coaching. However, we are still relatively young as an industry. I am concerned that we are becoming obsessed with exercise selection and tension. We don’t often think about function, the sport matters. It’s complex and time consuming but those that take the time to recognise this and act on it will provide better coaching and training for athletes. As a Sports Scientist I like to have my practices underpinned by research. But if I had to choose between common sense and research I would always choose common sense. My interests are firmly rooted in human movement, performance and coaching. Team Exos have a quote “When we train muscles, we miss patterns but when we train patterns we don’t miss muscles”. Sport is movement and movement is patterns.” link=”|||” instagram=””]
