Level 2 Strength and Conditioning Testimonials


”Had a great 4 days on the Level 2 S&C course with APA, the course was delivered in a fun, practical and easy to understand manner in a great learning environment. Any questions/problems I had were quickly sorted face to face or via email with the course leader.”

– Nathan Atlay


”I would like to thank you for all your work and helping me getting my Level 2 in S&C. I am now confident to safely deliver a program helping my athletes to get stronger and faster and most of all to stay injury free for as long as possible.

The course you delivered highlighted my lack of sufficient knowledge in the science behind the S&C and thanks to you I will be able to rectify this.”

Sebastien Scaux

”Over the past three years I have been training at Gosling IHPC and have been lucky enough to work with the APA team for my strength and conditioning. Daz and his team have handled all of my S&C program, working closely with my coach and physio in order to understand my tournament schedule, tennis goals, and areas that need physical improvement. They have used their expertise to devise a very specific program for my body and my tennis game style. Through physical testing twice a year they have been able to give me detailed feedback and track my progress as well.


Whether I am back at base working with Daz, or on the road following his detailed program on my own, I have complete confidence in the work we are doing, and know that my job is to simply give them my full focus and effort. When I am in peak physical condition, I know I can compete at a high level for as long as it takes to get the job done. This gives me a lot of confidence which leads to me playing my best tennis. Working with the APA team, my overall fitness has been the best it has ever been which has been integral to my rise in the tennis rankings. Even though some of their sessions push me to the edge, we have always had a lot of fun along the way as well!”

”APA has been instrumental in furthering the developmental experiences of University of Hertfordshire Sports Studies students who have a chosen specialism in strength and conditioning. The opportunities provided for mentoring, training, hands on experience, and stimulating articles/evidence based advice via the website have been transformative for several of our past and current students. Daz Drake has also kindly delivered well received guest coaching practicals at the university based on his strength and conditioning philosophies, and powerfully fueled by his clear passion and enthusiasm for high quality cutting edge practice.”
