"Whether just starting out or experienced, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of possibilities, infinite number of ideas and subtleties of advice you could be giving. I’ve designed this course to specifically help you navigate through the uncertainty and provide you with insights into the concepts that can help you make decisions, present to you what gold standard analysis and interpretation looks like and show you the edge that you can offer as a physiologist hoping to make impact for the athletes and coaches you’re working with."

"Lesson 1 was worth the course fee alone, given just how much it has helped my support."
"I wasn't expecting the amazing community too - it's been really helpful and supportive"



The Applied Pro Physiology course improved my applied knowledge in Exercise Physiology, as well as how to apply knowledge in everyday practice. I really benefitted from a birds' eye view' and the whole picture of what supporting athletes means, the importance of understanding the context I am working in and being able to navigate relationships, how to start and keep the right conversations going, as well as how to build confidence regarding the recommendations I will be making along the way.

"This course really helped me gain real-world examples of different situations with athletes and coaches. It has given me a better mindset for how to approach my work in coaching and supporting athletes. While doing the course, it has really helped to connect others' experiences and strategies of working in the  world of athletic performance support."

"The Applied Practitioner Physiology course led by Dr Steve Ingham was absolutely brilliant! His tips, tricks and insights were invaluable and I have learnt so much throughout all of the lessons. The content and delivery was perfect and I could not have asked for a better course coordinator. "
