I just wanted to congratulate APA coach Martin Skinner on being part of a a milestone week in the history of APA. Martin has been with APA during two separate spells since 2008 and had always set his sights on working with Professional athletes. He has worked hard to achieve this, and it gives all aspiring coaches out there the belief that if you put yourself out there and are in the right place at the right time, anything is possible.
Our Milestone week
As you will know APA provide all Strength & Conditioning coaching services on behalf of Gosling Tennis Academy.
Everything you read about below has been possible through hard work by a hugely committed, ambitious and expert team which I am glad APA are a part of:
– Aljaz Bedene – Training with Gosling Tennis Academy for some time, coached by a British team has beaten world number 14 and 34 to progress to semi final of ATP 250 in Chennai
This is the tenth year I have been working with Gosling Tennis Academy, and it has been very inspiring for me personally and the rest of my team to see Martin out on the ATP Tour as the Strength & Conditioning coach of Alijaz, 25, who has a career high singles ranking of 71.
I started coaching as a self-employed coach at Gosling 10 hours a week with county level players. I’m now the Director of APA, managing nine staff and APA now have the privilege to have worked with a number of Professional athletes.
Here is to a fantastic future. It looks like we are getting off to a great start in 2015!
