I have been a professional coach since 2000 and specialise in youth fitness and Tennis. I am the director of the Athletic Performance Academy (APA) which amongst other things has been providing Strength & Conditioning coaching to Gosling Tennis International High Performance Centre since 2005. In that time I have had the pleasure to work with some of the best junior tennis players in the world including players who have gone on to play at the professional level. I currently work with 3 of the top 6 highest ranked British men in Tennis and have worked with 2 Top 50 Tennis players.
I’m elated to begin offering the APA Training experience to a wider audience through my networks of associates in the local community so that together we can help introduce more kids aged 5-16 into a proper training routine so they can excel in sports or lead a healthy functional life.
There are some fantastic young athletes out there who will slip through the net. We’ll lose them because they’re not getting the right support for their physical development early enough.
APA’s expertise is in knowing what steps to take to introduce a growing child into a training programme which is both safe and enjoyable.
Qualifications: MSc post graduate degree in Exercise Physiology, UKSCA Accredited Strength & Conditioning Coach.
