    This provides a great insight into an ever growing sport and has helped me with several clients. As a pt you can almost guarantee you’ll work with someone who does endurance sport these days and this course will help you deliver a much better all round service to those clients!

    For someone who has absolutely zero experience in endurance based sports, this was a great insight into how I could positively influence future clients with a lot of information also crossing over to some of my other athletic, non-endurance clients. Definitely recommend this course. It's around 2.5-3 hours so manageable in one evening, but make sure you're ready to focus!

    Great overview of what we can do to support endurance athletes. Took away some useful guidance on strength and conditioning which is what I was after.

    Endurance athletes are often looking to seek help from anyone to improve their performance, and this course provides an in-depth look into everything you as a coach needs to know when dealing with these athletes.

    Having recently changed my own interests to endurance events this was full of great info which i can apply both to myself and hopefully future clients.

    Mike has delivered a brilliant course, taking you through the mine field that is working with endurance athletes. I cannot recommend this highly enough, in fact I'm going straight back to lecture one to do the whole course again! 10/10

    Mike's does an excellent job of covering many of the key areas we face as PT's when working with endurance athletes including the management of injuries, the importance of the S&C component and so on. There's a real practical feel to the advice and content here, of working with 'real' people and what that involves.
