As regular readers of the blog will know, I’m hosting a series of seminars on how to get a job in strength and conditioning when I return the UK this December. I was talking to top UK strength coach Nick Grantham the other day and he spoke to me about his intern and friend Richard Holmes who sadly recently died after a 6 year battle with a brain tumor.
Nick has written his book “You’re Hired”- his perspective on how to get a job in strength and conditioning- to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care and a fund to assist young strength and conditioning coaches break into the profession set up in Richard’s honour. These two topics hit very close to home for me, so Nick and I have decided to team up together and try to raise as much money as possible for these two charities.
Nick will now be giving his book to each person who registers for these four seminars, the cost of which (£10) I will cover and donate to the above charities. Currently this figure stands at £550, but with your help we can substantially raise this figure. If you are an aspiring strength and conditioning coach, get yourself booked on to a seminar (if you aren’t please pass on the link). You will be making a great investment for your career but also doing something for charity- win win!
