In this podcast interview, I’m talking all things SPEED with High Performance S&C coach, sprints coach, and former Commonwealth gold medallist sprinter Jared Deacon.

For those of you who don’t know Jared, he is a true professional in the field. He is a UKSCA tutor and has designed the latest speed and plyometrics workshop along with his role as Lead S&C Coach for the EIS at Loughborough. As an athlete he’s been there and done it too with a Commonwealth Gold Medal to his name.

More importantly, he can coach and get results.

I’ve been fortunate to have known him for a fair few years now, in fact he interviewed me for one of my former jobs at Durham University and at the EIS in Gateshead.

The interview covers the following areas:

We covered the following areas:

Jareds background as an athlete and coach

Who he works with now

intro to speed training and Jareds key influences
