Name – Chris Lorkin iSCC

What made you decide to pursue an S&C career?
I always knew I wanted to work within the sporting world and when the oppurtunity arose to pursue a career in strength and conditioning with Sport981 I knew that was the route I wanted to take.
What made you choose Sport981?
From studying at Nottingham Trent University and receiving such high quality s&c support as a team athlete from Sport981 made them perfect choice. I enrolled onto the iSCC-LIVE programme they ran at the university.
What did you study before applying?
I studied Sport and Exercise Science degree at Nottingham Trent for 3years.
How did you find the experience?
The iSCC-LIVE was a great experience and gave me everything it said on the tin. Using training techniques and receiving guidance from Sport981 tutors along with the certifications gave me the qualifications, experience, knowledge and confidence that has launched me straight into a career within elite sport from which I still utilise today.
What have you gone on to do?
My Career launched straight off the back of the ISCC-LIVE with Norwich City Football Club, landing a lead S&C roll for the academy age groups and res squad. A Couple of years later I found myself moving to Aston Villa FC as S&C for the senior team in the prem. I have since left football and now work as lead Strength and conditioning coach for Northampton Cricket Club.
