Introduction to Strength and Conditioning Coaching

Hello reader,

2023 is soon rushing in and I want these emails to help you in building/escalating your career in the upcoming year.

Last week, we talked about avoiding career stagnation and today, we will dive deep into a specific topic – Strength and Conditioning Coaching.

I have broken down today’s email into small chunks of questions and answers for your ease. Let’s get straight to the first question:

What does a Strength and Conditioning Coach do?

A strength and conditioning coach provides customized training plans for teams and individual athletes. This includes creating workout schedules and instructing players on proper equipment usage. When athletes get injured, rehabilitation programs may be established.

Is strength and conditioning coaching different from personal training?

Strength and conditioning coaching differs from personal training in that personal trainers work with the general public, but strength and conditioning instructors, while dealing with the general public, have a primary concentration on athletes.

They may, for example, develop training programs for athletes or assist with the rehabilitation of injured players or for their performance enhancements.

What is the scope of strength and conditioning coaching as a career prospect?

There are many opportunities for strength and conditioning coaches. They can work in sport-specific academies, clubs, or universities and also with medical practitioners like physiotherapists or orthopedics in hospitals, who will sometimes collaborate with strength and conditioning trainers to establish treatment strategies for patients returning to sports.

Many strength and conditioning coaches also open their own studios to cater to the general population or individual athletes.
