ONE of the most influential strength and conditioning coaches in the world is to deliver a seminar at a new high performance gym in Carryduff, Co Down later this month.

To coincide with the official opening of ATP High Performance gym, Dan John will be discussing the lessons learned throughout his 40 year career as an athlete and a coach on Saturday, October 26.

An all-American discus thrower, Dan competed at the highest levels of Olympic lifting, Highland Games and the weight pentathlon, an event in which he holds the US record.

Nowadays he spends his work life blending weekly workshops and lectures with full-time writing, and is a widely-published author, contributing regularly to Men’s Health as well as penning several books such as Intervention, Never Let Go, Mass Made Simple and Easy Strength.

An extensive question and answer session will take place at ATP, and managing director Emma Brennan believes the seminar will prove an eye-opener for anybody lucky enough to attend.

She said: “If you are a personal trainer, coach, athlete or enthusiast this seminar will change your training and understanding only for the better.

“Dan John's illustrious career has spanned over 40 years as an athlete and coach, and has helped shaped strength training as we know it. He is also a prolific author who has had a huge impact on how we now approach training.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet a genuine legend in the industry and ask him whatever you want.”

The seminar takes place at the ATP High Performance Gym, on the Comber Road in Carryduff, from 10am-1pm on October 26, and there will also be a practical workshop demonstrating push band velocity-based training (www.trainwithpush.com/push-band/) and advanced training protocols using resistance band and chains.
