"Whilst playing in professional football for over 15 years, I have worked with many strength and conditioning coaches. Chops' is up there with the very best, it’s rare to be coached by someone who has an abundance of knowledge but also the drive to learn. He listens to the athlete and works with them to get the best out of themselves.”
