Mark Armitage

Mark has spent more that 12 years in professional football working as a strength and conditioning coach, initially with players in the foundation phase at Norwich City, before moving to Southampton’s U18s, then Arsenal’s U23s. His most recent role at club level was with Huddersfield Town’s first team.

Mark has also worked for the FA as a consultant with a range of age groups across the international teams. He is now a lecturer at the University of Suffolk.

“With our wealth of experience, we are going to put across some of our key philosophies, which are very much based around football fitness,” he said.

“We want to give you the knowledge to apply in your own environment, whether you work at grassroots, semi-professional or professional level.”

Nick Harvey

Football fitness coach Nick has more than 20 years’ experience in the game, starting off at the Southampton academy before spending seven seasons within the Saints’ first team set-up.

He went on to become head of sports science at Reading, and nowadays enjoys doubling up a role with the England national development teams at St Georges Park, as well as coach educator with the FA.

“This is a good opportunity to share some of the insights we have gained during our time in the game and give coaches some practical ideas on how they can apply that knowledge into their practices.”
