Mr Paul Bailey - United Kingdom - Cross country Coach and Competitor

Mr Hayden - New Zealand - Soccer Coach and Competitor
Comments - This website is exceptional. With information on various sports and information on nutritional, training and LTAD, I found it hugely valuable. Awesome job.
J Haines - United Kingdom - Athletics Coach & Competitor & Official
Comments - Brian, the whole website, is brilliant! The information is easy to FIND and is not hidden in some intellectual language to make the producer feel special! It is coherent, understandable and HELPS PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE SUBJECT MATTER! British Athletics fail to do this! They should employ you full time (on a big salary) to sort out there website, were you cannot find anything!!!! Thanks, Brian
Mr S. Rao - India - Weight Lifting Coach
Comments - Dear Coach, it is a fantastic website that you have here & I cannot even imagine the amount of work, time & effort you must have spent to bring this mountain of information to coaches like me around the world. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. I use bodybyte software currently to do some of the testing etc. on my athletes & that has links to 3 websites for testing assistance. Your website beats the rest by leaps & bounds. I would devour the information you have so kindly given here free of cost. I remember being a member of Peak Performance a long time back. Overall, its content of the highest quality.

College of Health Sciences, K.G. Hospital and Post Graduate medical institute, saravanampatti, Coimbatore, TamilNadu, India. If we don't know about the basic or advanced training, we don't worry as brianmac.co.uk will teach us every nook and corner of the training. The information provided we cannot get anywhere else, and it includes references. You are doing a great job.

Comments - I am applying for my ISSA Specialist in Strength and Conditioning examination, and I wanted to thank you for the excellent website you have here.

Ms Vanessa Loggins - United Kingdom
Comments - I wanted to thank you for all the detailed and useful information on your website. Most of the coaching websites I have visited don't offer your explanations of the energy systems in the body and sports nutrition. Every time I search on specific running related information, I can find it in incredible detail on your site. Thanks again for providing a valuable resource
Mrs Sharon R. Patterson, USA, Competitor
Comments - Thanks for your Super Sports site, very complete, informative, and most of all, helpful for the overall subject of sports in general. Super-Duper ... A+++++
Mrs Daniella - United Kingdom
Comments: Your plyometrics and complex training pages were what I needed. It is easy to get trapped in the strength and speed training and hard to get to the next level. For your records, I play squash, spin, gym, fence, kickbox, and do archery. I also do sailing and snowboarding and hope to take up windsurfing. So I needed a new idea and progression. Thank you VERY much
Mr Eric Diaz - USA
Comments - Started weight training at age 50 to maintain strength and fitness. The best information I found was on this site. Thank you.

Comments - Great site, use it as a resource for my HS PE classes. Thank you for providing so much valuable information.
Mr Andy Schneit - USA - Triathlon Competitor
Comments - I started circuit training in about 1998 after reading and applying Owen Anderson's circuit training routine, doing 2 - 3 circuits per workout to complement to triathlon training, including one workout/week in season. Result: improved times, no injuries, and fearlessness. No race held any fear for me, compared with the workouts.
Mr Bill - Canada - Cross country Competitor
Comments - I found this extremely helpful. I am training for a big race this season, but my coach has moved away, so I decided to try this website. I found all the information helpful, concise and very specific towards my current situation. Thanks a lot.

Comments - I am doing a school project, and I thought this website was brilliant and gave me most (if not all) the information needed! Thank you!
Mr Steve Cranston, United Kingdom, Boxing Coach
Comments - A Really, Faultless site. As a level 4 ABA boxing coach, I recommend your website regularly to coaches when l am delivering Level 1 and Level 2 coaching courses. I always get excellent feedback from course candidates. I find it such a complete coaching reference.
As the boxing academy coach at Gateshead College, I recommend your site to other coaches from other sporting disciplines within the coaching staff. Keep up the excellent work. Each time I open your website, I find something new to add to my coaching knowledge.
Mr Barrett - USA - Soccer Coach & Competitor

Again many thanks for an excellent website, and there is nothing I see for you to improve the website.
