Hi, I’m Scott Pearson director & strength coach
I started working full-time in professional sport in 2003, and in that time, I’ve experienced a range of sporting environments; including the English Rugby Union Premiership, Premier League football, as well as elite-level cycling and Para-cycling.
I’m probably most well-known for my work with British Cycling; coaching Olympians and Paralympians in preparation for the games in Rio, as well as my work with Sale Sharks between 2003 and 2009, during which time we won the European Challenge Cup and Guinness Premiership.
These roles, and others, provided me with the opportunity to work with world-class athletes and coaches as well as academy athletes and junior coaches in the planning and delivering of a wide range of programmes; focusing on strength, power, speed, endurance, recovery, weight-management and nutrition, with the aim of minimising injuries and maximising athletic performance.
The purpose of my training programmes isn’t to make you tired, it’s to make you better. I believe in progression not perfection; embracing the grind and enjoying the journey. It’s not where you start, it’s where you finish.
My 15 years working in elite organisations has shown me that long-term consistency trumps short-term intensity every time. All the champions I’ve ever coached have said the same thing; what they remember most is the struggle to reach the top, there are no shortcuts, no quick fixes and that’s a beautiful thing.
My objective is for you to be faster, fitter and stronger; achieving your goals and doing what you once couldn’t. My duty is to provide consistently high levels of integrity and simplicity within my coaching, programming and education; recognising that you are an individual and what works for one may not work for another.
Your responsibility is to understand why, ask questions, to work hard and recover well!
