Tim Stevenson has been a strength and conditioning coach for 13 years and has spent much of this time working within Paralympic Sport. Tim completed his Masters in Exercise Physiology in 2015 and was selected to be part of the ParalympicsGB team for the Rio Games. Later in 2016 with David Jackson he co-founded the School of Calisthenics. Tim has led the strength and conditioning programme at British Para-Swimming since 2016 and continues to provide consultancy services in both physical preparation and development of the performance system. More recently he has used his own personal experience of shoulder injury and years of experience training athletes in overhead sports to launch a new project, Dynamic Shoulder Conditioning, a specialist coaching and education service that helps strength coaches to scale their athletes’ upper body performance and create truly high performing shoulders.

David ‘Jacko’ Jackson was a professional rugby player for 14 years until his career was cut short due to a head injury. Jacko is now a UKSCA Accredited Strength and Conditioning coach supporting Paralympic athletes and also works with them using his performance lifestyle experience, sports nutrition and psychology qualifications. He is a certified Performance Enhancement and Corrective Exercise Specialist and has trained athletes to win major medals on the world stage. If he didn’t already have enough qualifications, he also has a Masters in engineering and a PGCE in teaching.
