HELLO and welcome to my first article in the Gazette.
I’d like to thank you for taking the time to read this and hope you enjoy my other subjects of health, fitness and rehabilitation over the coming weeks.
In my first article, I’m going to talk about my recent trip to Italy, to further my knowledge on injury rehabilitation and development.
My trip was thanks to a fantastic coach, Francesco Dimundo.
I met Francesco through a professional network and discovered we had a lot of similar theories and goals in what we wanted to bring to our respective areas of study.
I went out to develop my strength and conditioning skills and learn from my time working in English professional football and learn the comparisons.
Francesco has worked with teams such as Hibs in Scotland, FC Bari 1906 and is now working with SS Monopoli 1966 in the south-east of Italy.
He also works with two elite volleyball teams (Italy’s second biggest sport after football).
He has a great perspective of all types of conditioning and exposure to different environments and fields.
