Accredited UKSCA Strength and Conditioning Coach

I know it has been a while since last blog post, but I have been busy with work and only just got back from my Christmas Holiday in Norway. When I was home in Norway I received a very nice email from the UKSCA (United Kingdom Strength and Conditioning Association) confirming I had passed my Strength and Conditioning Exams which means I am now a fully accredited Strength and Conditioning Coach. A very good Christmas present and start to the new year! 
Although I have always been very interested in training and injuries it was in my last year of University whilst studying for my  Sports and Exercise Therapy degree I got involved with a good S&C coach (Brendan Chaplin) and  actually started getting an insight into what a Strength and Conditioning Coach’s job involves. I have always like coaching and helping others so S&C coaching was something I started enjoying more and more, which is why I decided to start working towards getting a recognised title so I could start combining my skills as a Sports and Exercise Therapist with being a Strength and Conditioning Coach. 
I am currently working as an S&C coach for Bristol Rovers Youth Academy which I really enjoy. I am also currently working for UWIC Athletics Club on an ad hoc basis. 

I wish all my readers a very Happy New Year! Lets make it a good one!
