Strength and Conditioning (S & C) is the physical and physiological development of athletes or individuals for sporting performance. A primary role of an S&C coach is to apply the physical practise of exercise to bridge the gap between this and its theoretical background; helping athletes to become faster, stronger, more flexible and move with better biomechanics with the aim to perform better and remain injury free.

In addition to being accredited as an S & C coach by the UK Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA), Sean has a MSc degree in Sports Science Strength and Conditioning. Away from the theory he has also acquired practical Strength and Conditioning experience in elite sport with Enfield Haringey Athletics club and Rugby Union clubs including London Wasps, London Welsh, Saracens and Bournemouth RFC.
Outside of these elite sporting roles Sean and his trainers have also designed and delivered the strength and conditioning programs for many talented athletes across a number of varied sports such as Rugby Union, Football, Boxing, Athletics, Endurance Running, Fencing, Swimming, Golf and Gymnastics.
Strength and Conditioning is more than just lifting weights. It encompasses the entire development of an athlete through a specifically periodised program which addresses both their aims and needs to enhance and facilitate performance. The training involved for this will typically focus on plyometrics, speed and agility, anaerobic endurance, rehabilitative exercise and core stability with strength training being just one piece of the jigsaw.
