In September 2017 I became Australia’s second ever-Starting Strength Coach.
During my tenure as a Starting Strength Coach, I also worked as an online coach at Starting Strength Online Coaching. I enjoyed my time as an SSC and the experience it gave me, but overtime my philosophies surrounding training and health did not closely align with that of my peers.
Without a doubt, training is important to ones overall health and (in my opinion) enjoyment of life. However, while training a large number of people for an extended period of time, I saw goals change; motivations shift and the stresses of life get in the way of their training. Although an obvious observation, a broad array of skills, knowledge and techniques are required to effectively deal with these changes.
It’s clear to me, that Barbell Medicine, a company whose approach to training and health brings modern medicine to strength and conditioning, is better equipped to deal with these changes. Which is why I recently joined their team, with fellow coach SST coach Joe Pemberton.
