2015 is shaping up to be a busy year for me in terms of workshops and seminars and I figured it would be worth letting you know what I’ll be up to during the first half of the year.
I sat and looked at my schedule last week and suddenly realised I’ve got a whole bunch of workshops coming up. In particular I’m really looking forward to delivering the Atheltic Legacy workshops, this is a new workshop for 2015 and judging by the number of workshops I’ve been asked to deliver across the UK it’s clearly an important topic.
Here are the curent dates:
22nd – Creating An Athletic Legacy – Youth Physical Development Strategies – Leicester City Football Club – Youth Academy (we’ve got just 5 spaces left on this workshop so if you want to be among the first to see this brand new workshop get booked on NOW!)
11th – England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) Coach Education Workshop – Loughborough
11th – Creating An Athletic Legacy – Youth Physical Development Strategies – UFit Fitness, Cardiff
12th – Creating An Athletic Legacy – Youth Physical Development Strategies – Blackburn Rovers Academy
19th – 21st Century Programme Design for Physiotherapists – Hull Kingston Rovers RLFC
20th – AASE/Basketball England – Sports Medicine Conference – Physical Preparation Consideration for Non Centralised Programmes – Loughborough

25th – Creating An Athletic Legacy – Youth Physical Development Strategies – Sunderland FC Academy
19th – Creating An Athletic Legacy – Youth Physical Development Strategies – University of Leeds Business School
27th – UK Strength and Conditioning Specialists 2015 – Northampton County Cricket Club (I’m a little bit giddy about this conference, it’s a brand spanking new 1-day conference and the line up is quality – no BS merchants! Six coaches answering the same questions but relating everything to thier chosen sport – everything from combat sports, female athletes, football, rugby, hockey and action sports)
10th – Creating An Athletic Legacy – Youth Physical Development Strategies – National Tennis Centre – Roehampton – London
21st – Twentyone Leadership – Sticky Coaching – The Kia Oval
22nd – Lifting The Programme Design Curtain for Physiotherapists – Crystal Palace
23rd – Fitness Coaching Mistakes – 18 Mistakes in 18 Years – Underground Training Station – Chester (this is the final workshop that I’ll deliver in 2015 aimed specifically at Personal Trainers – after this workshop the only way you’ll be able to see me talk about PT related issues will be at The Professional Fitness Coaching Academy)
5th – Lifting The Programme Design Curtain for Physi0therpists – Rehabworks
I’ve got a couple of other workshops in the pipeline just across the water in Dublin and Belfast and as soon as I get confirmation of the dates I’ll let you know, but the way things are shaping up they won’t be taking place until May at the earliest (I need to have some time at home with the family!).
Lift The Bar
At the back end of 2014 I was asked to deliver a 60 minute webinar for the guys over at Lift The Bar – I took a look at what they were doing and it took me no time at all to agree. Take a look at their site, if you’re a fitness professional then you really should consider signing up for their programme. What did I talk about – the session was called ‘Behind The Programme Design Curtain’ and I pulled no punches (I also dropped in tips and advice taken from Mary Poppins, The Emperors New Clothes and The Wizard of Oz!)
Rob Pacey Podcast – Toward the end of 2014 Rob Pacey got in touch and asked me if I would sit in on a special edition of his podcast that dealt exclusively with physical preparation for professional footballers. I have to say it was one of the most enjoyable podcasts that i’ve done. Everyone involved just told it how it was. I’ve seen some fitness coaches involved in pro-football deliver similar round table sessions where it was very sterile and a sanitsed ‘perfect world’ version of what takes place at a training ground. This was the truth – the good, bad and ugly (and that was just the presenters). If you work in professional sport (not just football) take a look at the special edition podcast. He’s also got some great podcasts from coaches such as Dean Riddle, Darren Roberts, Mladen Jovanovic, Darren Burgess and David Joyce – he’s not messing about!
If you can’t find what you are looking for I would be happy to work with you to customise a workshop for your school, clinic or facility – email [email protected] for further information.
