From getting injured playing a season of u18s county and regional rugby in 2017, I realised that I needed to regain strength and stability if I was to go further in my rugby. Jacob has been my dads personal trainer for a number of years and it was an easy decision to go to him for advice. From the off he has listened to my needs as a female athlete, providing a personal program tailored to preventing injury and gaining muscle strength he also provided nutritional advice, performance testing, regular training sessions/ check ins and pre-game activation sessions. He has helped me psychologically within training and my sport. All this support has led me to be selected as part of the Harlequins Ladies squad 2017/18 working my way through the ranks and gaining a premiership debut in October 2017, having only played my first game back from a serious injury at the end of September. I now have regular involvement in the 1XV at Harlequins. I am looking forward to working with Jacob in the off season to gain a lot more muscle strength to go into my next season of Harlequins Ladies in the best shape possible!
I’ve trained with Jacob for nearly 2 years now and I can’t thank him enough for what he helped me achieve during this time! Since I started training with Jacob I managed to learn a completely new sport. My strength has increased significantly and my technique gets better as the time goes on. During this period I managed to hit number of pbs and qualified for a national competition! Jacob always makes sure I’m motivated and hungry for more. He helped me realise how much impact nutrition has on performance and how much can be achieved by eating properly and following the correct training protocols. Without Jacobs help I wouldn’t be able to do what I can do now. His knowledge and experience helps me believe in myself more and It taught me a lot along the way as well! I would highly recommend Jacob to anyone who is looking for a coach or any nutrition advice!
