Adam Brooks (FdSc)
Athletic Performance Coach
I have worked within performance centred environments for over 15 years. Coaching football to young academy players striving to gain professional contracts within these clubs. It was evident to myself how difficult it can be for a young athlete to break into the professional game and how competitive an environment this can become. From my experience I believe a lot of young games players have little access to professional advice on athletic development. Due to time constraints, sports teams will predominantly focus their time on the technical development of players and physical development becomes an after thought. Poor physical development can inhibit performance and potentially lead to reoccurring injuries.
As well as coaching football in a number of professional clubs I have also completed at a high standard in a number of sports including Football, Rugby, Athletics (Sprinting & Jumping events), Martial Arts and most recently Cycling. I currently compete as a Cat 3 racing cyclist in the UK, riding in local criteriums and regional road races. I am constantly setting myself new challenges and endeavour to compete at higher level within cycling.
