Consults with Strength and Conditioning Coaches only

Dr. Dan Baker is a world leading authority on strength, conditioning, and power training for sports athletes. He is as much a scientist as he is a coach, and his teachings represent some of the best practices in applied strength and conditioning research. In his 30 years as a strength and conditioning coach, he spent 19 years working in the national rugby league in Australia, helping to win 4 national championships to the Brisbane Broncos. During his time with the Broncos, he earned his doctorate in Sports Science and was elected as the president of the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association. Dan Baker is considered to be one of the most sought after international speakers on strength and power.
