Rob Thickpenny

Rob brings more than 15 years’ experience as a strength and conditioning coach in elite athletics. For 6 years Rob was the England Athletics National Coach Mentor for Physical Preparation where he coached and supported athletes through the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games. He has also worked with professional rugby and squash players to ensure they move better, develop more strength and reduce the potential for injury. He has deep interest in biomechanics which he studied during his sports science degree at Brunel University. Achieving movement excellence is central to Rob’s coaching philosophy and he applies this to all clients, whether they are training to be an elite sports performer or improve health and well being.

Rob is confident that his coaching methods will take an athlete further down the performance continuum and transfer to specific sports skills. He has a particular interest in velocity based methods such as Olympic Lifting, Plyometrics (jumping), medicine ball throwing and work with power bands.

Rob is also experienced at working collaboratively with physios and osteopaths to provide rehabilitation solutions and return to play. In part this comes out of his skills in sports massage therapy where he holds a level 3 and has attended additional workshops during his time in Athletics.

For 12 years Rob was an elite level Pole Vaulter and competed at events in America, France and Holland. He’s a little bit crazy!
