Nick has become recognised as a specialist in athletic preparation and has helped athletes at all levels achieve their personal goals and ambitions. Nick has worked in high performance sport for more than 20 years and has extensive experience of long term athlete development. As lead strength and conditioning coach to National Governing Body’s, Home Institutes and professional teams, Nick has been responsible for the management, development and delivery of integrated physical preparation strategies for a wide range of sports.

- 'Robots vs Humans'

- What was the reason behind the book You're Hired?

- Out of all the sports that you have worked with; which was the most fulfilling?

- When you see some of these amazing facilities are you very much like a kid in a "sweet shop" or "candy store"?

- 'Athletes can get spoilt but so can coaches'

- What are your top tips for training during the current climate?

- 'You can't play yourself into shape'

- Why do you think people are going to struggle when it comes to their mindset in the winter?
