Christian Woodford is one of Australia’s most respected, sought after and experienced performance coaches. In 5 years Christian has built Woodford Sports Science Consulting from the ground up into a worldwide brand and business that has catered to thousands of athletes from the best up and coming AFL draft picks to professional and Olympic level athletes, and everyone in between. Christian specializes in athletic development and injury prevention through the lens of his Honors in Exercise Neuroscience and experience assisting at Maryland University (USA) Division 1 Football Team. Christian’s vision is not just to change the athletes he works with, but to leave a monumental legacy and impact on the fitness industry in Australia and #ChangeTheGame forever.

Christian Woodford’s coaching experience is vast to say the least. He has coached athletes from all over the world and created physical performance programs for multiple sports. Christian’s specializes in athletic strength and power development, which has been built from years of theoretical knowledge coupled with real world practical application.

This makes Christian a sort after strength and conditioning coach for athletes wanting to improve their athletic ability and decrease their chance of injury. Christian’s coaching ability is unique and is able to maximise and get the best out of all the athletes he coaches through attention to detail and hard work.

Christian created WSSC due to the lack of services available to athletes who want to improve their sports performance with an elite coach. WSSC was created to give any athlete or team, regardless of the level they play, the opportunity to be exposed to high performance coaching, like the professional athletes. Christian’s methods aim on getting the best transfer to the athletic environment while decreasing the athlete’s chance of injury.

After Christian worked in USA assisting the head Strength and Conditioning Coach at Maryland University, he decided to adopt the USA College system of training as he believes the athletes in America are provided with far greater guidance and preparation in-order to have what it takes to be a top athlete and be on top of your game.
