Performance Partners:



"After completing my BSc in Sport & Exercise Management and having attained my NSCA CSCS along with numerous other certifications, I can honestly the Phase 1 S&C Course is world class. They take complex information and simplify it so that it can be used straight away in the field by coaches. The level of detail is fantastic, their systems of training are brilliant and their practical sessions take you through things in a step-by-step fashion. The Phase 1 S&C course is the ultimate experience in Strength & Conditioning coaching and I would highly recommend this course to any Personal Trainer/Sport Scientist/Physiotherapist who is looking to further their career as a fitness professional."

(John Peter - Personal Trainer from Dublin)
