Performance Partners:


"I completed the Phase 2 Course in 2015 and I can't recommend it highly enough. I finished the course just before completing my UKSCA and it prepared me thoroughly for their membership exams. More than that, I now feel a far more rounded S&C Coach with systems of training for any sport, whether in the gym or on the pitch/track. Karl Gilligan and his team of tutors are world class and they make it look so easy. If you want to advance your professional career as a coach/trainer, then the Phase 2 is a must do after the Phase 1."

(Rob Mulcahy - S&C Coach from Kerry)
