Having played rugby competitively since the age of 14, Graham moved into coaching when injuries threatened his playing career. While playing semi-professionally in Australia he was introduced to strength and conditioning and he’s been hooked ever since.
Graham decided to focus his studies on strength and conditioning while enrolled on an Honours Degree in Sport and Exercise Science at Leeds Metropolitan University. He has worked with several professional sports clubs with the likes of Bradford Bulls Rugby League and Northampton Saints Rugby Union being just a few names on his CV.
Aiding in the ankle rehabilitation of Ben Foden (England Rugby) and having a hand in the development of potential Great Britain Javelin throwers for Rio 2016, Graham has an impressive amount of applied knowledge under his belt.
He now chooses to focus largely on young athlete development and is always keeping up to date with the latest scientific research. He feels there is a huge pool of talent out there and with the correct professional coaching, they can succeed at anything they set their minds to.
Having recently moved to the South to take up a position at The Better Body Group, Graham looks for clients with a “can-do” approach.
Always cheerful, always wearing a smile, when you see him in the gym, go over and say hi.
