About

My name is Adrian Faccioni and here is what you need to know about me.

I have been involved in Sport and Fitness/Conditioning for over 30-years. 

My interest began as an avid Track and Field competitor, leading to coaching multiple Track & Field disciplines over the subsequent 20+ years.

I applied my Track and Field conditioning knowledge to many different sports with a focus on Speed and Power development for athletes.

This experience landed me a position as lecturer in charge within the University of Canberra’s Sports Studies department – running the Sports Coaching degree.

In 2000, I took on the challenge of developing a new technology, GPS for sport/fitness, and commercialised the first Sport GPS device globally.

In 2016, I moved back into Strength and Conditioning with a focus on translating the latest in Sports Science research into training information that can be applied by all fitness individuals wanting to get fitter, stronger, better. 

With this site, I will be providing regular articles on many aspects of Strength and Conditioning, Physiology, Training and other topics of interest.

I also run a face-to-face consultancy service (group, one-on-one) in all aspects of Strength and Conditioning with a particular interest in physical development in 40+ year olds.
