Thomas Company Strength and Conditioning Coach

Tom is our Lead Strength & Conditioning Coach here at PNSC and has been with the club since October 2018. You will often find him poolside prior to sessions helping our swimmers go through their pre-pool or in the gym taking them through their ‘Sport Specific’ land based training with the goal of improving strength, power and reducing the risk of injury.

Tom has completed his Masters in Sports Performance and is currently working towards his CPPS qualification and despite not being from a swimming background he has competed at an international level in basketball and therefore understands the sacrifices our swimmers have to go through and work that is necessary, to be successful.

Despite not coming from a swimming background, he does every now and then like to get into the pool for a swim. Although, if we’re honest, it is more of a paddle than a swim.
