Workshop Overview

In this 2 day course elite coaches Brendan Chaplin and Dave Hembrough share their methods and strategies for developing high levels of strength, power and athleticism. These two coaches have worked at the highest level for almost 20 years between them, coached olympic athletes, professional sports starts, teams and individuals. This is a must for any strength and conditioning coach and personal trainer to attend.

What You Will Learn...

  • How to teach someone how to perform the Olympic lifts effectively in less than 5 minutes! (Including yourself!)

  • How to improve someone’s squat depth and form in 3 minutes or less.

  • How to get huge groups of athletes working with great technique and productively (Dave and Brendan are both masters at this!).

  • How to programme for strength and power quickly and effectively. You’ll be able to put solid and effective programmes together very quickly after attending this workshop!

  • How to perform major barbell movements with excellent technique. But not only that you’ll learn how to coach them, the key coaching points you need to use to get instant changes and results from your clients and athletes.

  • When to use dumbbell movements instead of barbell movements for maximal results.

  • How to develop work capacity using innovative methods.

  • How to use gym based sessions to develop endurance and work capacity.

  • Specific training for athletes in the gym.

  • It’s not about simply lifting big weights, you’ll also learn about develop athleticism in your athletes and clients in the gym and out of the gym too. We want people who can move and with Brendan’s movement sequences you’ll pick up instantly applicable stuff you can use with any athlete.

  • Power through plyometrics. When to use plyometrics for power, stiffness and reactivity. You’ll pick up everything you need to know to programme them effectively.

  • When to choose Olympic lifts over other methods for power development and when NOT to use Olympic lifts.

  • Which exercises to choose with large groups that makes the session fun, valuable and enjoyable.

  • Speed programming- what happens when your athletes are injured and you have to change the programme in minutes? How do you make sure that the session is still valuable? By the end of this course you’ll have a template for doing just that and be able to programme a fantastic session in less than 5 minutes time.

There will be no confusion at all after this course. You’ll have the confidence to coach every barbell and dumbbell movement with any population you’ll ever encounter. That’s a guarantee or your money back!!

About Your Coaches...

Brendan Chaplin

I’ve always been intensely passionate about fitness, both personally and professionally and hence in 2010, after gaining years of experience in the field, I decided to open my own business; Athletes Unlimited.

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.

Somewhat of a self-confessed fitness-aholic myself, I also currently work as the Head of Strength and Conditioning at Leeds Metropolitan University and for the Asylum Vale Tudo MMA Fight-Team.

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!

Dave Hembrough

I am the lead strength and conditioning coach at Sheffield Hallam.

I have an MSc Sport injury management and therapy, and a BSc Sport Science.

I'm a sports scientist for Podium Performance and work in consultancy, research and teaching.

Working as the current lead strength and conditioning coach at Sheffield Hallam University, the head coach of Hallam Barbell Weightlifting club and working out of the Centre of Sport and Exercise Science (CSES), I'm also a well-respected sports therapist.

My work involves a great deal of hands-on athlete consultancy in both field- and gym-based environments. I was the lead S&C coach for the GB womens Volleyball programme, have worked extensively in professional boxing, rugby union, diving and orienteering.

We promise you that this course will make you a massively better coach. You have our word on that. If you feel for any reason that the course is not worthwhile for you simply hand in your course manual at the end of day 1 and we will send you a full refund on Monday morning. No questions asked and no hard feelings.

WARNING: This WILL sell out!

We like to limit places to ensure that you have both a quality experience and the workshops are highly interactive, so there are a maximum of only 25 places available, with several of these already reserved pre-sale.

Not only are Brendan and Dave are at the top of their game - this workshop is genuinely pioneering.  Most workshops will teach elements like Olympic lifting, however in this workshop you get that but also learn how to coach EVERYTHING properly.  All the exercises that no-one ever properly teaches you - you'll walk away with new-found knowledge and confidence to use straight away!

You will need to act quickly, as we genuinely expect the remaining spots to go fast.
