Will is a Certified Strength and Conditioning coach who runs his own facility, Powering-Through, in Essex, UK. He works with athletes and individuals across all backgrounds, but specialises in MMA fighters, grapplers, motor sport athletes, and golfers. He is a Strength and Conditioning consultant to the PGA European Tour, and spends much of his time abroad working closely with professional golfers. He practices what he preaches, and pushes himself in his own training as much as he does his own athletes. 

I sat down with Will to talk about his approach to Strength and Conditioning, and his views on pragmatism, iatrogenics, skin in the game, being a ‘do-er’, and dealing with imposter syndrome, amongst other aspects. He also shares his own experience with severe depression, how he got through this, and the psychological journey this involved. We finish up with Will giving us some timeless concepts and principles that he has garnered through his work in S&C, that we can all apply to our own lives.
