Alex Parry, MSc, BA

I’ve been working within strength & conditioning for around a decade, coaching recreational through to senior international athletes across a range of sports.  I’ve supported two major universities and three national talent pathways.

Alongside this I work as a tutor and educator for British Weightlifting, as well as working as an assistant Lecturer at the University of Hull, specialising in Strength Coach-Athlete Relationships

How it works

Here’s a step by step explanation of what happens when you choose to sign up for a custom training programme.

1) Info gathering

Great programmes require high-quality information, so we’ll start by having you fill out an in-depth intake form going through your goals, training history, workout frequency etc.  We’ll also chat by WhatsApp, where you can send me a few exercise videos for technique assessment.

3) perform

You’ll then go solo for 4-5 weeks to execute your training programme to the best of your ability.  As you do this, you’ll be asked to track your performances and fatigue. At the end of the training block we’ll use all that data to further refine your programme.

2) write & review

You then sit back and relax, and over the next day I’ll draw up a draft of your programme, which I’ll send through to you with a full explanation video.  You then have a couple of days to ask questions and/or let me know if you’d like an changes.

You’ll then go solo for 4-5 weeks to execute your training programme to the best of your ability.  As you do this, you’ll be asked to track your performances and fatigue. At the end of the training block we’ll use all that data to further refine your programme.
