Performance Coach

Bryan has worked in high performance sport for over 25 years and in business for the last 10 years. Within sport, he has provided performance and development support for a diverse range of elite athletes and teams from aspiring Olympic athletes to professional football teams. He has worked in several capacities throughout his 25 years career in elite sport, giving him a unique insight into high performance and the factors required to nurture it. He has worked as a strength and conditioning consultant to professional teams as well as the British Weightlifting team, British Athletics and Paralympic athletes. Furthermore, he has provided psychological support to several National Governing Bodies of Sport as well as elite performers. He also sat on the British Olympic Association Psychology Advisory Group for a short period following the 1996 Olympic Games. He has coached at International level and now acts as a mentor to many Olympic coaches and professional sports managers. Bryan is at the forefront of coach development and is currently providing support to UK Coaching and the sports sector on aspects of coach development and the pursuit of a World Leading Coaching workforce.  He is directly responsible for the development of the highest level of coaches in the UK through the UK Coaching Certificate level 4 programme, where he is the programme director. Prior to the London 2012 Olympic Games, he provided performance and educational support to all the Pacific nations competing in London. This led to Bryan making significant improvements in coach and athlete development throughout Oceania.

In business, Bryan has used his knowledge of high performance environments to facilitate large organisations to become more productive and successful. This has ranged from the systematic review of institutional cultures and motivational climates through to specific issues raised by the clients such as stress management, conflict resolution and time management solutions.

In September 2012, he founded a brand new secondary school called Sandymoor School, and later he opened the Robbie Fowler Education and Football Academy (FEFA). Both are thriving!
