Video resource (10-15 mins) that aims to help you develop a clear sense of purpose around your own training sessions and training of athletes. These Masterclasses aim to develop your knowledge, professional skills, expertise and confidence. You will gain a better understanding why you do what you do, and how to achieve the results and outcomes you are wanting. There is an emphasis on your biomechanical and physiological understanding in these classes.
Resources that hone your ability to capture and interpret data that genuinely profile “real change” in your athletes. Basic to advanced assessment techniques are discussed and you are asked to “act-on” this information to improve your ability to assess and monitor changes in movement and performance. The material is often linked to the material presented in the Masterclasses.
Video examples of exercises and how they can be integrated into a training session and/or periodised into the training schedule to improve movement, athleticism and sporting performance. The videos are often linked to the material presented in the Masterclasses.
Each Research Byte (3-5 mins) is a video-graphic of the peer-reviewed published research I have been involved in. The Research Byte presents a brief outline of the research, but mostly focuses on the practical applications of the findings to assist you as a trainer and practitioner.
These are stand-alone resources that have been created with my students where we convert some innovative research into actionable exercises and programs. The content for these are related to some of the cutting edge research we are doing, and begin with a brief showcase of the research but quickly progress into actionable steps to enhance your strength and conditioning practice.
I'll share some of the cool things that we are up to in the strength and conditioning, and sport technology space, things that have picked my interest and/or some of my learnings from many years in the game.
I like to write about aspects of Strength and Conditioning in more detail, they take a bit more reading to absorb and digest. Typically these are packed with more figures and tables and geared towards up-skilling knowledge and expertise.

An undergraduate degree in sport science is desirable but not essential if you have a history in training people or being trained, and/or if you are willing to do the work.See online courses

“Your learning experience is my passion, I want to provide resources that ignite your thinking and challenge you to be better. I want to train your brain to be more critical and creative, to expand your strength and conditioning practice.”
Helping you be better at what you do, is my why! I have been a student of strength and conditioning since my youth, my focus over time changing from making myself stronger and faster, to making others stronger and faster and to now mentoring strength and conditioning coaches and practitioners around the world to be better at guiding their athletes and the people they train. This experience and expertise, coupled with a passion for research into strength and conditioning, enables me to share learnings and knowledge with you that can make a real difference to you as a user of this information.
Why go online? Well people often ask when I teach, “Is there a book or article that I can go to read more about this?” Most often I reply “Not really, it’s how I have patched a lot of bits and pieces together over the years to understand and improve strength, power, speed and so on.” So this has brought me to this juncture of my life, unpacking my cluttered brain and providing these resources and learnings for you.
What’s really important to me is that you understand the why of what you do, to improve your practice and the service you deliver. What makes these resources unique? It’s integrated in a way that gives context to your learning and is practice focused with a solid underpinning in science. So that’s what you get with JC Online – resources that are mostly unique, can be trusted and have the potential to transform what you to do and give you more confidence as an educator, coach and practitioner. The flow on effects to your athlete’s and players will be obvious, and your career and/or business can benefit as well.
