A Teaching and Coaching Fellow with particular expertise in the field of performance sport from a strength and conditioning perspective.
I have been a member of staff at the University of Bath since September 2005, having worked in the Department of Sports Development and Recreation and the Department of Education as a Teaching and Coaching Fellow.
Within my current role in the Department for Health as the Director of Studies for the Sports Performance course, I deliver units on the Foundation Degree, as well as the BSc in Sports Performance. Additionally I have delivered lectures and units on a range of other undergraduate and postgraduate sports related courses at the University of Bath.
My interest in Strength and Conditioning Coaching has led to my working with a number of sports in an applied context, at present I work with High Performance Swimming, but in the past have worked with a number of other sports including:
- Field athletics (Hammer and Javelin)
- High Performance Womens Football (Southern Premier League)
- International Snowboarding
- Academy Rugby
- Development Surfing
- National Level Mountain Biking
I have also been involved in the design and delivery of strength and conditioning coaching workshops for the Talent Southwest Programme.
Prior to working for the University, I worked for BUPA for six years as Regional Trainer / Health Adviser, educating and assessing staff in the delivery of exercise ECG tests with online gas analysis, in combination with a variety of other physiological health and performance related tests.
