From my experience from working with Nathan he was extremely diligent, hardworking, knowledgeable and relatable. Having spent a large amount of time working closely with him coming back from long term injury he was an integral part of both my conditioning and strength work which enabled me to get back to my best
Nathan challenged us physically and mentally to limits that we never knew existed as new comers to the Victorian Institute of Sport women’s hockey program. He did so in a supportive and nurturing environment.

I enjoyed multiple years of strong performance under Nathan’s guidance.
I had the pleasure of working with Nathan when I was based in Melbourne for a year to prepare for the Melbourne Marathon and Rio 2016 Olympics.
His passion, caring nature, professionalism, and creative exercise programs kept me highly motivated. Nathan is a great communicator and was able to adjust my program appropriately in response to fatigue or any niggles I had.
His strong knowledge base meant that I was able to learn a lot throughout my time with him as my S&C coach and I saw improvements in my running times from the 10000m to the Marathon
At 17 years of age I was fortunate enough to receive a Track & Field scholarship through the Victorian Institute of Sport. Prior to receiving this scholarship, I had never been on a strength and conditioning program and I had only been undertaking some body weight exercises as part of my training.
Being a new VIS scholarship holder & being in the middle of transitioning from a junior to senior athlete, I was incredibly thankful to have Nathan take me on as my strength and conditioning coach. Nathan taught me all the basic principles and fundamentals of lifting & provided me with a comprehensive, long jump specific strength and conditioning program. The strength and conditioning programs I completed whilst working with Nathan, together with his expertise in delivering detailed feedback reflected some substantial improvements in my speed, power and strength which in turn resulted in some significant improvements in my overall long jump distances.
Nathan’s professionalism, communication skills and his passion towards helping athletes and individuals achieve their goals is what makes him an exceptional coach to work with.
