“The Strength and Conditioning Internship at the University of East London was a great opportunity for me to gain practical experience working with athletes as I pursued my degree. This program allowed me the opportunity to work with elite athletes from a multitude of different sports, some of which I had never been around before. Head Strength Coach, Duncan Ogilvie, created a knowledge rich environment with many coaches and scientists constantly around the gym. This allowed me to continuously learn new ideologies about training and programming that I would have never had without this internship. The experiences and knowledge I gained through this internship not only helped me complete my degree, but has also greatly helped me in my professional career. Becoming a UEL Strength and Conditioning Intern was one of the best decisions I made while I was at the University of East London.” – Trent Reeves (2014-15 Intern)
