Charlie is an S&C Coach who started his career at Performance Herts in 2014 while studying for his BSc in Sport and Exercise Science, amassing experience with athletes in over 40 different sports over the last 5 years. Prior to re-joining the Performance Herts team, Charlie was the Lead S&C Coach at Coventry University, in addition to the Head S&C Coach to both Coventry Blaze (a professional Ice Hockey Team and 4-time EIHL champions) and Coventry Bears (a semi-pro Rugby League team competing in League One).
Best part of being an S&C coach
The variety keeps you on your toes, as there are never two days that are exactly alike. In terms of the role itself; you are actively involved in athlete’s development, building a working relationship that can be tons of fun as well as productive. When you see a transfer to performance related to elements of training you have done together, it's incredibly rewarding.
I enjoy playing tennis (relatively well), training in the gym (some would say not so well!) and listening to a wide array of music.
