New coaching partners specialise in a number of sports to raise your game

Now Covid lockdown has eased, you can get back to training for competitive sport with Shape Your Future. That’s because SYF have partnered with 3 one-to-one coaches, each with varying sporting expertise. Running, athletics, cricket, football and athletic performance coaching is now available, along with our original rugby coaching. SYF Rugby Coaching was also expanded in February when three rugby coaches were recruited to deliver children and adults’ rugby sessions in the local Stone and Stafford area alongside co-founders Tom and Gemma Hughes’ rugby coaching at Stone Rugby Club.

The first self-employed coach on board was Matty Quimby’s Athlete Per4mance brand, which offers specialist performance testing equipment and software. Matty collects data and analyses any athlete’s performance metrics, mobility and force generation by carrying out a range of exercises, which can be done in our PT studio. He then uses this information to create bespoke exercise programmes to help sportspeople and track athletes reach elite level.

Tom Hughes (clinical director) says: “Matty adds so much to our organisation and we’re very lucky to have a partnership with him. We can provide massage and rehab treatment for athletes recovering from injury and Athlete Per4mance can get them back on track in their sport. The partnership works superbly well”.

Matty said: “It’s a pleasure to be in partnership with Shape Your Future and thank you to Tom. Great to get testing done and collate the data.”

Matty is an experienced semi-pro footballer that has played for Stoke-on-Trent. He also runs football-specific conditioning camps for ambitious footballers of all ages, which are ideal as we approach pre-season.

For cricket coaching, Sam Kelsall has offered up his SK Cricket coaching company for SYF clients. Sam is an ex-pro who represented Staffordshire CC, where he captained the team, and Nottinghamshire CC. Sam still plays Minors Counties cricket but has a focus on coaching the next generation of cricketers and developing current players looking to step up their game to the next level.

Sam Said: “Many thanks to Tom for joining forces. There will be lots of great things to come from this partnership.”

Connor Coaching is now partnered with SYF. Ross Connor is an athletics coach, steeplechase and competition road runner. Ross also coaches Physical Prep and Conditioning, and Movement specifically for runners. He was the Hertfordshire 800m and 1500m champion while living in Watford. He now runs for Stoke Athletics Club and is looking to develop his coaching career. Ross became a level 1 Training Peaks certified coach in February.

Ross said: “I saw that Tom is doing amazing work with local coaches and wondered if SYF wanted a running coach. I’m looking to develop my coaching business and it’s great to link up.”

These partnerships go hand in hand with sports massage and rehabilitation services on offer at our Hilderstone clinic. If you are a sportsperson at any level, SYF can fulfill all your body’s sports science needs. Call Tom 07494 820460 for one-to-one coaching sessions in any sport or to join the SYF coaching team.
