Ms Tiffany Thomas - USA - Athletics Coach
Comments - I have just begun my foray into coaching. I helped coach a high school girls' basketball team and I will now be preparing to coach a track team. I came upon this site while looking for some drills for practice. I think this is a fabulous site. It is very informative and detail oriented. I saved it to my Favourites right away. Kudos to the creators of this site. It is extremely helpful, especially for those just now journeying back into the world of sports.

Mr Eric A. Simpson - United Kingdom - Athletics Coach (UKA4)
Comments - An excellent website which I recommend to other coaches of all ages. It probably covers all aspects of coaching in a concise and readable/understandable way. I use it on a regular basis to clarify my thoughts on certain issues. Long may it continue.

Mr Colwell - United Kingdom - Athletics Competitor, Coach and Official
Comments - This site is absolutely fantastic! Your site has provided me with a wealth of useful information on not only my main sports but also those I have a go and coach. It is by far the best place on the internet to look for sporting information and has been of enormous benefit to me. I thank you for the wealth of information you make available and for its accuracy and usefulness.

Mr David Woods - Australia - Athletics Coach and Competitor
Comments - Around seven years ago I had the urge to get back into athletics and burned myself up trying to train like I had as a youth - during the 6 months it took to get over the Achilles inflammation as a result of my folly I scoured the web and media for a sensible approach to starting training. When I found your site, it was like discovering a gold mine, I spent weeks poring over it following the various threads, sometimes feeling I was tying myself in knots but basically learning and discovering a massive range of info and ideas to build my own programme. I was incredibly grateful for the resource and the lack of selling attached to it - though subsequently did get a bit bombarded by the peak performance people. It is an amazing gift and I recommend it highly to anyone who needs to know anything about track athletics. Thank you

Mr Siddiqi - Pakistan - Athletics Competitor
Comments - I would like to thank the management and creator of this website. It has proved itself to be an invaluable source of information and I have used it intensively as a guide for my training.

Mr Gary Smallman - United Kingdom - Athletics Coach and Competitor
Comments - I am studying sports science at university and this website has helped me out through my past two years. Thank you so much. I recommend this website to anyone looking for sport-related information. Thanks once again

Mrs Janet Peck - United Kingdom - Canoeing Coach
Comments - This is my first visit to this website. Having only just touched on your introduction to Sports psychology I am already hooked and will read now on a daily basis. Since embarking on the coaching pathway over the last 18 months I have found it a challenge to cope with different individuals within the coaching environment and I am now hungry to learn more about the 4C's and techniques for dealing with them. I especially wish to learn more about anxiety and its relationship to performance.

Mr Steve Cranston - United Kingdom - Boxing Coach
Comments - Hard to improve on near perfection. As a level III boxing coach, I found this coaching site to be an absolute goldmine of info. Would love to see a bit more boxing specific info but generally, everything needed is covered if you search a little. This web page has really changed my approach to training my boxers. They are reaping the benefits as is my own personal coaching development. I regularly use your testing techniques to record an increase in fitness levels, giving my boxers great feedback. At present, I have personally recommended this site to about 30 boxing coaches. Great work and very easy to understand. Many Thanks, Steve Cranston

Keep up the great work.

Mr Heil - USA - Rugby Competitor
Comments - I really like this site. l am new to working out and needed a way to build my own workout routine. I enjoyed using your Training Program (40 yd dash) as a baseline. I also like the science behind training, and this site is great in that aspect. I ended up making a workout card for myself, which is in an excel spreadsheet. It has my exercises listed in rows and the respective columns are my 1RM, 3RM, etc. I also included two columns to input Weight and Reps, and used Brzycki's equation to automatically fill in the columns for RM. I really enjoy the fact that a lot of the information on your site, including the calculators, is free, and I want to contribute by giving you the workout card I made if you think you could use it.

Mr Ramsy - USA - Competitor
Comments - Well done site. It would be extremely useful to provide pictures or sketches of various exercises, such as kickboxing, aerobic exercises etc. that could be used by individuals at their home etc. I know it is asking too much, but with economic troubles, any help to seniors will be appreciated. Thanks again for your wonderful probing work.

I have bookmarked your site and come back to it often, particularly for heart rate training information.
