A word from the director; My name is Jake and as Director and head coach here at Crusader Strength, I want to extend my gratitude for taking the time to get to know us a little better.
Our ethos and what we stand for
At Crusader Strength, nothing but the best will do. We hold ourselves to the highest of standards and wont settle for anything else. We aim to project this in our coaching and relations with our athletes. We are constantly learning, evolving and bettering our services and our underlying ethos is that athlete centred coaching is of absolute paramount.
Jake is a strength and conditioning coach specialising in building functional athletes who perform as well as they look. His philosophy is that building resilience and keeping injuries at bay are at the forefront of any well designed programme. Perfect for whether you want to become stronger, more athletic or just have confidence in your training.
He has worked with clients from all walks of life from World Champion athletes to clients living daily with Parkinson’s with hundreds of clients in between, and these have all amalgamated over years of hands on coaching experience. He has had experience helping hundreds of people achieve their goals by cutting through the industry BS and bringing nothing but evidence backed, athlete centred focusses, all with an individualised approach to training and lifestyle.
My personal story
Born and raised in the West Midlands, UK, I spent my teenage years as a National level cyclist. Something I took great pride in (and still do!). The issue with this is that I was 6ft tall and 55kg. Soon enough I was crippled with injury that lead me to stop competing.
So what did I do? I discovered that if add some structure to my frail body, injuries may actually subside and eureka, it worked! Funny that. And here's the best part - it made me a better endurance athlete.
More recently, I have had my fair share of congenital cardiac issues which took its toll but didn’t stop me achieving what I wanted to achieve. I’ve had my heart stopped and started again far too many times to think. All this has done is lend perspective. I am more driven than ever for success. I want to share that with you.
