As well as his roles with Wigan and England Rugby League Team, Mark is currently working with 800m Runner Jenny Meadows. We are lucky to have this interview from him.
Mark's previous roles have been with Gloucester Rugby – Head of Sports Science, Scottish Rugby- National Team Fitness Coach/Head of Elite Performance, Glasgow Warriors- Head Athletic Performance Coordinator and London Wasps as their Senior Strength & Conditioning Coach.
One of Mark’s key aims in the gym is to provide Instant feedback to athletes. GymAware delivers this through the iPad and the “realtime video” functionality. GymAware is also allowing Mark to achieve a long term monitoring of squads and he uses it as part of his testing/monitoring/readiness to train program..
It is the ease of use and time efficiency which attracted Mark to GymAware initially. GymAware is:
When asked about his job experience prior to using GymAware, Mark mentioned calibration issues, ease of use, set up times and general efficiency (Muscle Lab, BMS and Just Jump) All these issues made it difficult to implement measurements during sessions with larger groups.
His initial experiences with GymAware were positive. It was an easy transition due to the simple setup. Since then, GymAware has helped us monitor the England squad over a prolonged period whilst also giving us instant performance feedback during sessions.
Marc is currently using GymAware with Rugby & 800m running.
