The recipe for failure
If you don’t want to end up looking and sounding like every other jobless coach out there… stop relying on the SAME traditional coaching pathway
Stop making this classic mistake when applying for jobs
What they don’t tell you during all those resume workshops at university is that if you’re applying for high level strength and conditioning jobs with a cover letter and resume, it’s already over. The competition for jobs is so high, you need to be ASKED to apply for the job to get it. And you get asked by having a broader network, stronger relationships, and more knowledge and skill than the next guy.
How elite coaches actually get hired and get paid
Until you take the time to learn, expect to be on the outside looking in. Top level coaches plan, network, communicate, negotiate and most importantly earn differently to regular coaches.
We’ll show you how to do it
all inside Strength Coach Network.
We are for coaches by coaches.
We’ve helped over 2000 coaches just like you to get a foothold on the industry ladder, climb it fast, and build the kind of career that so many coaches want but so few achieve.
From educational video lectures, downloadable coaching resources, live Q&As, members discussions, interview prep, resume critiques, networking opportunities and more, we’ve got the tools you need to stand out from the crowd and get hired.
At Strength Coach Network we know what gets people hired, and we’ve helped countless coaches to do just that.
You're not the kind of coach that elite teams know, like and trust. Yet.
People hire people they know, like and trust. Guess what, coaches are people, elite sports teams are run by people! If you want them to hire you as a strength coach, you need to build the kind of knowledge, skills, and experience that makes them chase YOU, not the other way around. And if you’re reading this, that’s not you right now.

If your experience is like mine, the problem is the very thing you spent all that time and money investing in to get hired in the first place: your degree and professional accreditation.

Respectfully, most degree programmes are taught by people who have never stood in a room with a world class athlete, let alone been paid to train one. Who would you rather learn from about how to get rich- an economics professor, or a self made millionaire?

Instead of working backwards from what elite coaches and athletes are doing to break records in the real world, degrees work forwards from studies and research papers that are already years behind best practice.

Instead of learning how to build your network, cultivate relationships, and sell yourself, you’re taught by colleges that the secret to career progression is in teaching a better power clean, or a few extra letters after your name. Big mistake.

Until you break out of the traditional model, every day you wait is a day that the competition is leaving you in their dust. Competition is huge. You need to act now and learn fast if you want to get ahead.

The sooner you do, the sooner you can escape the endless cycle of rejection, volunteering, internships and financial and professional hardship that plague our field.

I was WAY behind the competition when I started
I’ve been exactly where you are now. In fact I might have been further behind than you are now. I graduated with my bachelors in criminal justice. I thought I wanted to be a police officer back in my home town. That was until I started working in the District Attorneys office during the summer before Criminal Justice grad school.

My offensive line coach asked me to coach the OL with him while in grad school. I did this and worked at his gym during the day, coached football in the afternoon, and went to grad school at night. This is when I realized I did not have a passion for criminal justice - but for the weight room. I dropped out of criminal justice grad school and enrolled in grad school for S&C. I was behind and had to work FAST!

Looking back I realized this was a blessing for me. It showed me what I REALLY am passionate about. I know this is what God put me on this Earth to do. Fast forward from starting my grad degree in S&C back in 2009. I completed my PhD in Health and Human Performance in 2020. But back in 2019 when all my masters and doctoral classwork was over I was introduced to SCN from my colleague Joe Alexander. I feel in love with the content and education and was THRILLED to have such an amazing resource. But I also felt angry that here I was done with my education from a PHD and it was nothing like SCN.

Inside Strength Coach Network we’ll help you to identify exactly what it is you need to unlock your potential and accelerate your career. 

We’ll take you through our in-house auditing process to identify your strengths and weaknesses, provide you with specific resources, help you to design an individualised career plan of action, then keep you accountable through the process to achieve your goals. 

If a meticulous approach like this is necessary to train world class athletes, why will anything less suffice for you and your career?

Let us break down the Strength Coach Network experience for you so you can see exactly all the value that is on offer:
  • Conour Houlian

    Strength & Conditioning Student, Ireland

    As a student in the final year of my S&C degree, when searching for S&C topics and questions I had regarding career development, I usually wasted a lot of time and got information from unreliable sources. Becoming a member of the SCN allowed me to be much more efficient with my time by providing me directly with quality information through presentations and discussions from practitioners who are at the top of their sport and have been there and done it.

    The primary thing that keeps me using the SCN is not just the quality of information it provides but the community feeling to it. Along with presentations and webinars, I have taken most value from things such as networking, program review threads, CV reviews, and discussion with regard to progressing in the industry. The quantity of information available on the SCN is evident from the fact that it is used by people just starting out in S&C, and also those who currently hold top roles in pro sport. It's something I will continue to use and highly recommend to others as I continue to do so.

    1st Team Strength & Conditioning Coach Burnley Football Club

    As a young strength coach, its often difficult to decipher the sheer amount of information that is available in our field. This puts great pressure on coaches like myself, as we are programmed to constantly critique and want to further our knowledge base. Speaking from experience, this leads to being swallowed up in an all-consuming knowledge storm- the more you read, the less you begin to understand.

    As a coach working in professional football, you can find yourself being unchallenged in your thoughts and practice, with other people in your department not willing to challenge you, whatever the reason. This leads to stagnation as a coach and is a place I have spent a large part of my coaching career in. I needed to break the mould and begin to once again, challenge my thoughts and practice.

    Upon joining the community, I didn't know what to expect. I immediately felt out of my depth when I saw some of the names of the coaches who are posting the various webinars and threads. This anxiety was very quickly quashed, when I realised that questions were being answered in a eloquent, articulate and concise way, whereby no question was too big or too small. Upon dropping my coach's ego, I decided to delve into some threads and engage in some conversations.

    This was arguably a turning point in my strength coach career. I had finally found a place where other strength coaches had been through my frustrations and had come through the other side with solutions. Whatever question you have, this is the place to dive in and find out. The monthly webinars are supplied by the highest quality of coach and are always fantastically informative, with each one tweaking my ever-growing performance plan. I cannot recommend the community enough.

  • Gabriel Genuso

    Birmingham City Football Club Ladies

    I remember graduating in 2017 with a 2;1 in sports science ready to enter to world of work but soon came to the realisation that jobs in sport were few and far apart and even internships required unrealistic amounts of experience. After many unsuccessful applications and disappointment I was almost ready to give up. I then saw them saw an advertisement for strengthcoachnetwork.com so I decided to give the $1 trial a go. After only one day I was exposed to more real world strength and conditioning techniques and practical science than I had during an entire 3 year degree.

    It not only changed my own training for the better but It gave me the confidence to start a masters degree in strength & conditioning which allowed me to find an internship. From that point following a vast wealth of ebooks, webinars and careers advice from a whole host of elite coaches in particular from Keir I was able to craft my own methodology which has resulted in me landing the position of lead Strength and power Coach at a top professional women's team whilst still studying my masters.

    I can't recommend the site enough to aspiring strength and conditioning coaches. If you want to get anywhere in this super competitive world you need to learn from the best and Keir is one of the best!

    Frequently Asked Questions
    • What if I find I don't have time to access the community?

      Well, no problem. If you feel you are too busy to utilise the information or support on offer, you are welcome to cancel your membership at any moment with immediate effect

      There is no minimum time commitment, but even our busiest members find that a few hours per week adds up to huge learning and development over a year.

      Learning to spend more time working ON the system rather than IN the system is just one of the major concepts we advocate for at Strength Coach Network

    • Can't I just get this information for free from the internet?

      As the old saying goes: “Results can be good, cheap or fast. You only get to pick two”. True, there is a wealth of information out there on the internet, but much of it is bullshit disseminated by people who have never coached an elite athlete in their life.

      On the rare occasions that established coaches do publish high quality information, it typically just scratches the surface of a particular topic or doesn’t provide the correct environment for detailed discussion or Q&A with the presenter.

      The best learning is reserved for those coaches who invest in themselves. We invest a lot of money in bringing top practitioners to our network, but our group structure means we are able to keep subscription fees low for our members. We are confident you won’t be able to find this amount and quality of coaching education elsewhere for cheaper.

    • What if I'm not using the information available?

      Our member on-boarding process will ensure that you’re exposed to all the site has to offer, and that you’re able to get maximum value from the information, support and interaction available.

      If you are a motivated strength coach, you’ll want to use this site. If life gets in the way however, for example a change of career or a prolonged lay off, we can cancel your membership with immediate effect, no strings attached.

    • What if I don't like the site?

      If you don't feel you got career changing value from your membership, your next year's subscription is on us. You'll pay nothing.

    • Aren't there other, cheaper sites out there?

      If you can go elsewhere and rub shoulders with elite level coaches, learn from world class practitioners, and get in depth, personalised career support from some of the best in the field for less, we want to hear about it. If you want to be a top level team sport strength coach, we're the right fit for you.
