Media Exposure & In The Press…

Working in high profile, high performance environments for almost 25 years has created an opportunity for media exposure, filming and articles or interviews in the press.  

Following are some examples from over the years…

Keep Your Boots On

 The RFU’s professional match officials were hard at work throughout November, with 24 referee or assistant referee Test match appointments…

Alex Reid is their strength and conditioning coach and says: “The physical demands required for the modern day match official requires some respect.

“These athletes are covering between 7–8 kilometres in a match, at an average heart rate of around 80% of their maximum, completing multi–directional, high intensity intermittent bursts of physical exertion, with changes in speed from zero to over 20km/hr.

“This, alongside real time decision making, communication with the players, the other match officials and TMO creates a requirement of physical preparedness, resilience and robustness.

“To be the best, they need to train hard and the programme in place at the RFU is perceived to be an example of ‘gold standard’ globally across other Unions.

What is your background in your profession and within sport?

I went to university in America, did my degree out there and played basketball with a scholarship. I graduated, came back and as part of my degree I worked at the British Olympic Medical Centre and it was great to work with elite athletes. That gave me a taste of what I wanted…

…Was it always going to be sport for you?
Yes. I played sport at elite level as well – basketball for England – so I’m used to performing at the best you can be. I wanted to work in sport and there is nothing better on the rehab side than if there is a player injured and you get them back. How rewarding is that?

In the latest in the series “Stories Behind the Faces”, Fulham Today caught up with Alex Court, a key member of Roger Propos’ team working behind the scenes…

…So there you have it….the appliance of science. We’ve come a long way since the days when all an injured player could look forward to would be cold water and some liberal usage of the flat-capped trainer’s magic sponge. But with Alex and her colleagues working their own magic, it’s nice to know that the care the Fulham players of today are getting is the best there possibly is.

Alex can suport you with the same expertise that she has provided to elite athletes over many years:

Don’t leave your performance to chance…
