What Makes a Top Coach?
Our current students have been on the mentorship programme now for eight months since starting in January. They have received expert advice from some of the top strength and conditioning coaches in the industry. We caught up with five of our students to find out which coaches had inspired them the most this year…
“Tim Kerrison is brilliant, he builds his solid coaching on sound philological principles. I admire the way he helps athletes to believe in what they can do”
“There are so many great coaches who are commendable for different reasons. I would say Ian Fisher for being an amazing mentor and helping me believe in myself, providing sound feedback and allowing me to find the right direction”
“In terms of technique I would have to praise Danny Hague for power as I have learnt so much from that”
“From a business perspective Darren Stratton and Russell Jolly have provided me with inspiration and ideas”
“It’s difficult to pinpoint one coach as many have been a big part of my mentorship success. I’d say Dave Hembrough because he facilitates you growing as a person; he lets you learn a process and apply it”
“Darren Stratton is a coach we should all aspire to be. He is a genuine guy who will do whatever it takes to help people”
“I have to give credit to Brendan Chaplin for the simple fact the man is ridiculous in his pursuit of doing things well and big. He has shown me that if you have a vision then as long as you stay true to it and you really want it then it will happen”
“Lee Taft at the moment for agility, Boyle for his ability to keep things simple and Russell Jolley for being good at what he does and an inspiration to the mentorship candidates”
“I admire coaches who keep things simple and don’t overcomplicate learning. In this category I would have to say Brendan, Boyle, Duncan French and Jared Deacon”
It’s great to hear that our Mentees have been motivated and inspired by their mentors. With the solid coaching they have received I have no doubt they will take their careers from strength to success.
