The Master Strength And Conditioning Coach Progession

It is with great pride that I mentor Strength and Conditioning Coach Certified (SCCC) candidates every year to test for and earn the “gold standard” certification in strength and conditioning. The satisfaction of seeing these young people earn the SCCC certification and embark upon their full-time careers is a huge highlight for me.

Strength Coaches: Coming Through When It Counts

I never knew what a strength and conditioning coach was until I stepped on campus at Indiana University (IU) and began my rowing career. In those four years, a man I never knew existed pulled something out of me that I had never in my life recognized up until that point. I, a shy, introverted freshmen was thrown onto a team with 70 strong, fearless women. “Sink or swim Lanie, you better find a way to keep up,” is what went through my head.

Master Strength & Conditioning Coaches Share A Special Bond

Being a mentor, especially in the strength and conditioning coaching profession, means a lot. Sometimes, we must answer the call of duty to help those coaches who look up to us. They look to us for solutions. They need our knowledge and experience to help them solve problems they have never faced and avoid pitfalls they didn’t know were there.
