A little more about me...

I’ve always been intensely passionate about fitness and how to improve sports performance, both personally and professionally and hence in 2010, after gaining years of experience in the field working with thousands of elite athletes and delivering hundreds of presentations to coaches in the field I decided to set up my company Strength and Conditioning Education.

Serious about S & C mentorship and supporting fellow coaches to reach their true potential, I’ve hosted various seminars and workshops (including the Level Three S & C Programme) over the last 18 months, all very popular with coaches across the UK and beyond.

I always practice what I preach as do all of our Master Coach Mentors. I currently work with many athletes including UFC Fighters, elite tennis players and many more.

Furthermore, over the years I’ve gained valuable experience in various coaching positions for Huddersfield Giants RLFC, the North and Midlands Lawn Tennis Association, Hunslet Hawks Rugby League, the English Institute of Sport and Durham University.

Fully accredited by UKSCA and holding the CSCS qualification, I’ve been truly fortunate to work with a fantastic array of people, from recreational athletes to Olympians. That’s not to mention my time as Fitness Editor for Alpha Fit Magazine (I still write regular features for “Men’s Health”) and that (due to my personal passion for martial arts) I’m also a qualified wrestling and boxing coach!

As you can probably tell, I pretty much live and breathe fitness coaching and honestly, I’m just itching to share my knowledge and experience with you!

But enough about me... here's more info about our World-Class Mentor Team...

Darren Stratton

I graduated and left BU to focus on growing The CC to six figures and love running a busy gym full of members that work hard to get better every day.

This is a sentiment I take into my business growth as well as my coaching ethic.

There really is no reason to procrastinate any longer; seize the day and INVEST in this opportunity to become something truly great.

I’ve personally spent a scary amount of money travelling across the globe to learn from the best of the best and earning MScs, PT qualifications, therapy diplomas and nutrition certifications.

In fact - even now, at the top of my game, I spend over £10,000 a year on training and education to ensure that I truly am the BEST that I can possibly be.

Here’s what some of your fellow fitness professionals said about our mentorship…

If you are looking to invest in your education, gain qualifications to progress your career and improve your personal business while working alongside and meeting people at the pinnacle of their fields, then you are have come to the right place.

The above is exactly what I was looking for when I set up my own facility in Durham and I have to say, my expectations were completely surpassed. There is no other program out there that I came across (and believe me, I looked) that could rival what Brendan offers.

I believe Brendan to be one of the most enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgeable coaches I have worked with and the educational aspect to the Mentorship alone is worthwhile but that’s just the start……

I can’t say enough good things and I guess that in summary, I have to say, it has been the best investment into my career which in turn has made it the best investment in my business, as I am my Business……

Adam Morton
Adam Morton AM Fitness

I was for a while looking for some sort of S+C mentorship in the UK. I had no luck so I was thinking of going across the pond to the US instead. This was until one of my friends mentioned Brendan’s mentorship programme. At the time I was working out of a commercial gym and thinking about setting up my own gym facility. What made me go with the mentorship was not just Brendan’s expertise in the S+C industry but also his success in business.

Since starting the mentorship I now have my own S+C facility with over 60 members so I don’t think I need to explain how useful it was to have Brendan by my side in the process.

Whether you want to improve your business or your S&C knowledge and practical experience then Brendan’s mentorship definitely provides that. I have had access to over 10 of the UK’s top coaches throughout the mentorship which has been a great learning experience.

I know that even after the mentorship Brendan will still be on hand to offer his advice. Thanks Brendan and I hope to make the most of all the advice, help and resources you have provided for me and my business to date.

Paul Cook
Paul Cook Frontier Physical Fitness

I won’t lie to you, you need to be ready for this, but if you are and are willing to put in everything you’ve got, you’ll accelerate your skills beyond belief. Since starting the course, I’ve racked up a mass more knowledge, skills and coaching experience.

Since beginning the Mentorship I have a website that’s had over 80,000 visitors in a year, I’m working well towards my UKSCA accreditation and I’m a qualified coach for UK Athletics coaching at a club with 4 GB Internationals, getting to coach S&C for a great bunch of athletes.

It’s quite frightening the progression I’ve made; I struggle to even recognise myself. I now have the direction, clarity and a brilliant support network that will allow me to maintain my progression.

Ultimately, the mentorship has made me a vastly better coach!

Darren Stratton
Darren Stratton Stratton Performance

Investing in your education and learning is a huge part in any coach’s career development and I believe the mentorship programme Brendan has set up is amongst the best support programmes out there.

The main reason I got involved with the mentorship programme was the opportunity to surround myself and learn from Brendan and other elite coaches at the very top of the game.

Brendan’s input and guidance was inspirational. My understanding and abilities in the coaching and training methodologies of speed development, youth training and Olympic Lifts have improved substantially as a coach in the previous 12 months as a direct result of the programme and I’ve undoubtedly, enhanced my abilities as a coach.

Brendan has massively helped me with his experiences in the field, always being available to chat through some of my ideas and current challenges. I have learnt a lot from his ideas and methods of leading a department of Strength and Conditioning Coaches, as well as his excellent experiences in how to deal with interesting characters in the technical coaching world!

He has also provided immensely valuable feedback and advice in helping me prepare the England Women’s Lacrosse Development Squad athletic development national programme.

In summary, I believe I have made fantastic steps forward as a coach, an educator and a leader of fellow S&C coaches in the last 12 months. Without any doubt, Brendan’s mentorship programme, along with the input from other top coaches in his workshops, has been vital to my progress.

Jonathan Kantor
Jonathan Kantor Great Britain Paralymic Swimming

As a qualified tennis coach and a developing strength and conditioning coach in the sport I was looking for a mentor who I knew was credible and had great experience. I was aware of Brendan through his previous work with the LTA and having been impressed with a workshop he led a number of years ago it was an obvious choice to utilise his skills and knowledge to help develop my own.

There is no doubt Brendan is a committed and incredibly dedicated strength and conditioning coach but also has the drive to help assist and develop aspiring S&C Coaches. He also has an excellent network of colleagues in the S&C profession.

Indeed I felt I had the ability to be a good S&C Coach in tennis but needed a mentor to help develop my confidence. Not only this though, but through Brendan’s understanding of business he has inspired me to begin my own sport science in tennis business, www.scienceintennis.com. There is no doubt that by the end of the mentorship program my confidence, knowledge, skills and delivery of S&C has improved and I will meet my goals set at the start of the mentorship.

Not only is Brendan a great mentor and S&C Coach but he is also a approachable and all round nice guy.
