Craig Coggle MSc ASCC

Head Coach

My coaching journey has been a bit of a rollercoaster journey, starting out in group exercise and slowly progressing through various courses and accreditations to where I am now, with my Masters Degree in Strength and Conditioning. As an athlete, I come from an international rugby and endurance sports background. As a coach I have trained athletes of all levels from a wide variety of sports, and non sporting backgrounds, and I was part of the England coaching team at the Commonwealth Powerlifting Championships in 2019 and 2022 and continue to be part of the GB Powerlifting coaching team. I believe the key to success is consistency, and consistency starts with a good programme that you are able to realistically achieve. I have had the pleasure of watching many people blossom from good training, both physically and mentally, and I want to deliver this to as many people as possible.

"Good coaching and community is essential for development, and that is what we deliver with The Barbelle Project!" - Craig.
