Testimonials

At RS Performance we have a group of youth Athletes aged from 12 to 18 years old engaged in our academy programme. Due to the unique circumstances Covid19 has presented to us, we looked to engage them online on a variety of topics. We wanted to introduce them to nutrition on a basic & practical level. It’s something I had known Rob had delivered before so after discussing this we decided an online presentation was the best way to go. The presentation was great, it developed their knowledge and understanding of nutrition and finished with a quiz. The girls & boys enjoyed it, commenting that they had learnt about portion sizes, where to find food sources & when to increase or decrease a particular food source.The presentation was pitched at just the right level for youth athletes and offered some very useful practical tips on how to improve their nutrition to get more out of their academy programme.

-Rob Hart (RS Performance Coaching)
Rob and Scott from Athletic Evolution recently ran some workshops at our Youth Day for young people aged 10 – 11.  The ‘ninja’ workshops were great, the children really engaged in them and they were led in a professional way, with the desired outcomes having been agreed beforehand.  We’d definitely use them again and would recommend them as a fun and confidence-boosting activity for children.

“Rob provided an excellent presentation, perfectly pitched for this adolescent audience. He was not fazed by facing over 130 boys whose attention he held for the full hour. The group was clearly compelled by the issue of drugs in sport and this led seamlessly into a discussion about performance-enhancing substances and the use of everyday dietary supplements where Rob was able to demonstrate that a normal balanced and healthy diet brought all the necessary benefits at a fraction of the cost. We will certainly look for a return visit, especially given Rob’s high profile in schoolboy sport which meant that his message was both strongly conveyed and attentively received.”

-Neal Clark, Head at Stewart’s Melville College, Edinburgh
“Rob came down to do a talk on nutrition for our preseason Hockey bootcamp. There were 17 x 14-16 year olds at the talk and I think Rob nailed it. He pitched it perfectly for the age group, keeping them interested and involved with the use of quizzes, 3 day food diaries (handed out the week before for players to fill in) and a great ability to engage with the group. Rob clearly has an excellent knowledge of the subject as well as a fantastic presentation style. I would definitely recommend.
