Queen's Park Rangers have appointed James Finn as their new lead Strength and Conditioning coach for the forthcoming season.
Educated to a masters level in strength and conditioning, James brings a wealth of experience and professionalism to the Rangers' coaching team. Prior to his appointment, James has been fortunate enough to have worked with arguably some of the most talented and respected athletes and coaches in the world.
Having graduated with a first class degree in Sports Rehabilitation from Middlesex University, James continued to refine his skills under the expert tutelage and mentorship of the coaches at Athletes Performance in Los Angeles. While in Los Angeles, James contributed to the now infamous NFL Combine programme, pre season and in season preparations of the LA Galaxy and Chivas, USA. He also had the privilege to assist the US National team coaches with their World Cup preparations.
Further to James's work in the United States, here in the UK he has extensive experience within professional rugby, national academy fencing, consulting with high end private school programmes and currently resides at the new elite performance facility at the prestigious Harrow School, providing strength and conditioning support to 800 student athletes. The ladies team training sessions will also be based at the same venue, giving them access to some of the best elite performance equipment and facilities available.
When asked about the plans for the coming season, James replied: "First and foremost, I'd like to express my gratitude to Martino [Chevannes] and his coaching staff for the opportunity to work with their team this year.
"The primary focus and message endorsed by our team is one of movement, more explicitly the quality and efficiency of movement. The ability to accelerate, decelerate, jump and change of direction are skills often taken for granted. These movements transcend individual sports but rather support performance in its purest. Proficiency and mastery of these skills cannot be achieved without purposeful strategies in place. Technical skill counts for little if a player's movement prevents them from expressing these skills on the pitch. Therefore, athlete education will be fundamental to all we do from this point on.
"With the demands placed upon the female footballer increasing season to season, it is important that our training approach reflects this. Pre-season will be tough, yet highly rewarding. With the first session scheduled for next week, I simply cannot wait to get started."
