Michael Watts (MSc, CSCS, NASM: PES, CES, CPT). I started my training career in 2002 as a personal trainer and in 2006 transitioned into a fulltime role as a performance coach with professional soccer athletes as head of performance. I spent 11 years working full time with professional soccer players at the highest level of the sport across youth, senior, male and female formats of the sport including performance roles at English Premier League Clubs and at National Team level for China and England.
Since my transition to live and work in the USA as a High Performance Director I have continued to work with athletes at the highest level across a number of different sports including Judo, Basketball, Boxing, Track and Field, Running, Speed Skating and CrossFit. As part of my philosophy and methodology optimizing Human Performance, I understand and have experienced the importance of functional breathing and its impact of recovery and performance through continued research and application of conscious breathing practices.
