Owner Urban Based Fitness and Head S&C to Newcastle Jets W-League


“For years I had been training and working with athletes and been looking for a way to up-skill and continue to grow as a coach and when I saw that you were starting an academy. I’d been following a lot of Edge’s content on Instagram and immediately recognised that you were effectively applying a lot of the theory I had learnt in my Exercise and Sport Science degree to both emerging and elite athletes. I had found it hard to apply my knowledge confidently in the past and I didn’t have a mentor in the industry / someone I could collaborate with and I felt like my growth as a trainer was plateauing.


I joined Edge Performance Academy and my expectations were exceeded. Your knowledge was extensive and your support was amazing. With your help I submitted a proposal to Newcastle Jets FC and won the contract to be the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach to the Newcastle Jets W-League side for the 2017/18 season and have relocated my business into a larger fitness facility designed to cater for field-based athletes.


As part of EdgePerformance Academy, I have learnt so much more than I had expected and stepped outside of my comfort zone. For me the best thing about the course was the opportunity to meet other like-minded coaches and trainers and to refine my skills / knowledge to give me the confidence to train and get the most out my athletes. I feel like I have an industry mentor forever now and I couldn’t recommend joining this program enough!”
