Our Story

Why we do what we do

I'm Scott Pearson

Ex British Cycling Strength Coach

My background

I’m probably most well-known for my work with British Cycling, coaching Olympians and Paralympians in preparations for the games in Rio, as well as my work with Sale Sharks between 2003 and 2009, during which we won the European Challenge Cup and the Guinness Premiership.

I’ve worked in professional sport since 2003. In that time I’ve experienced a range of environments.
I've worked in Premier League football, as well as English Premiership rugby union.
In 2006, I was a member of the support staff that won the Guinness Premiership final.
I've also experienced life at the other end of the table! I worked for Worcester Warriors between 2011 and 2014, where avoiding relegation was the aim of the season.
For as long as I can remember, I've loved coaching people for sporting achievement, whatever their level. What gives me the biggest buzz is helping other people achieve their goals...

These roles and others gave 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 programs; focusing on strength, power, speed, endurance, recovery, weight-management and nutrition, to minimise injuries and maximise athletic performance.

What did I learn?

It’s not what you know, it’s how you deliver that knowledge that makes the difference between an average coach and a successful one!

Writing the best training plans is all well and good, but if people don’t buy into what you’re doing, then it’s worthless.

Working in sport for so long has meant I’ve had to change, evolve and adapt my coaching style to get the best out of the different types of people I’ve helped along the way.

My philosophy

I believe in progression not perfection; embracing the grind and enjoying the journey, because it’s not where you start, it’s where you finish.

More than 15 years working in elite sporting 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 responsibility

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!

The purpose of my training programmes isn’t to make you tired, it’s to make you better.
