As a young aspiring cricketer with no clear path into professional cricket, Cricketstrength played a huge part in my development. The combined knowledge of Ross and Steff is second to none in the game from my experience. I’m very lucky to still have Ross as an S&C at Worcestershire CCC, his training methods have been extremely successful in bullet proofing bowlers from injury and working with him more closely has increased my pace substantially whilst still remaining injury free. help I received from Steff for technical work on my action was staggering and really opened my eyes to how much there is to know about fast bowling, he has done wonders for not only my action but my mindset of always wanting to bowl fast. The one thing that really sets these guys apart in my opinion is there continued willingness to learn, you can guarantee year on year the strength programmes and training methods will be different as they learn more about their respective fields. If you are willing to put in the hard yards I am sure that it is impossible to stand still working with Cricketstrength.
I will always be grateful for what Ross and Steff have done for me.
