Applied Strength & Conditioning

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Applied Strength and Conditioning offers an in-depth education on this growing area of interest, both in Ireland and internationally. The Strength and Conditioning Coach is becoming a central and key figure in preparing and advancing the fitness and performance status of the individual athlete and team both in professional sport and in amateur and recreational sport. Strength and conditioning coaches people towards optimal performance and injury prevention through the application of knowledge gained through many discipline areas such as sports science and exercise physiology. Students are prepared for the UK Strength and Conditioning Association, ITEC Gym Instruction and the United States National Strength and Conditioning Association exams. This ensures successful graduates have the highest international standing. The programme also has strong links for work placement and research with Ireland’s leading sporting organisations. A modern Strength and Conditioning Coach will also have additional skills that utilise advances in technology to impact on the development of the athlete, player and team; as well as requiring the core elements of business to be flexible in applying his/her strength and conditioning skills. The Thurles campus houses an elite, state-of-the-art sports strength and conditioning facility that greatly enhances students’ practical learning on the programme.
