Hi, I’m Keir Wenham-Flatt, welcome to Rugby Strength Coach. I’m a strength and conditioning coach with Toshiba in the Japanese top league based in Tokyo, Japan. If you’re a rugby coach or athlete who is serious about physical performance on the field, you came to the right place.
Let me tell you a little bit more about myself:
I’m a rugby strength and conditioning coach with many years of experience of working with rugby players from all levels of both codes of the game, from the grass roots all the way up to international test matches. I’ve worked with teams on 4 different continents, some of which include:
- Toshiba Brave Lupus
- Sydney Roosters (Rugby league, NRL)
- Los Pumas, Argentina (including a 4th place finish at the 2015 rugby world cup)
- Rotherham Titans
- Shandong Province 7s (2013 China Games National Champions)
- London Wasps
- London Scottish
I’m an NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with a Master’s degree in Strength and Conditioning and a Bachelor’s degree in Sport Science. I’m also qualified in Functional Movement Screening, Olympic lifting and I’ve completed levels 1 and 2 of the Athletes Performance international mentorship, which I’d thoroughly recommend if you are a coach yourself.
When I’m not coaching, I like to write and blog about rugby strength and conditioning. My work has been featured in a variety of different sites and publications including Rugby Coaching, International Rugby Coaching, Muscle and Fitness, Men’s Fitness, Mike Boyle’s Strength Coach Podcast, Global Sport Coach, and more.
I’ve also been a guest speaker and consultant at elite level sports clubs including Arsenal football and Northampton Saints Rugby, as well as various other Universities, unions and clubs. In my spare time I like to practice what I preach; I’m an amateur rugby league and rugby union player, although I make a much better coach than a player!
