Since finishing his post graduate in Strength and Conditioning at Cardiff Metropolitan University Angus has worked across a number of different sports at all levels.  These roles have included working with a number of different teams from Welsh Hockey to Bath Rugby as well as a number of individual athletes in athletics and Slopestyle Snowboarding. Each of these roles has presented their own unique challenges but they have all been hugely rewarding in their own way and will all be experiences Angus will cherish and try to develop from.
