Brett Bartholomew MS. Ed., CSCS, RSCC – Bartholomew Strength – Coaching & Consulting

“Simple, salient and swallowable. These Research Alerts help cut down on the anxiety of wondering whether or not there is important research that you have missed or are unaware of, and maximizes efficiency by cutting to the key points. Knowledge becomes wisdom only when it’s applied, and this allows me to apply new research more quickly and effectively.”

Dr. Anthony Turner PhD, PGCE, CSCS*D, ASCC – Programme Leader for the MSc in Strength and Conditioning at Middlesex University, UK.

“The Science for Sport website and associated resources provide an excellent means to stay current within the field of sport science and strength and conditioning. In addition to their blogs and collection of videos and podcasts, their Research Alerts provides easy to read highlights of the latest and most talked about journal articles, identifying practical take home messages that can then be applied at work. I certainly recommend you check out their work if you haven’t done so already – they’ve done a great job bringing everything together onto one website.”

“I am a big fan of the Science for Sport Research Alerts. Having the most pertinent and up to date research delivered to my inbox on a monthly basis is both convenient and time saving. The additional insight and commentary from the Science for Sport staff is a huge bonus as well. I cannot think of a more beneficial way to spend $6/month.”

Robert Palka CSCS MSc Student in Strength and Conditioning – S&C Coach, Lecturer and Consultant

“As a coach, I need to be sure our training is based on the best current science and evidence, and not outdated ideas or tradition. Though with only 24 hours in a day, it can be difficult to stay abreast of everything. Science for Sport has been a key go-to page for me when looking for well researched information on a variety of S&C topics. And now with the Research Alerts and its well presented, easy to read and digest reviews of the latest evidence, it will be even easier to stay on top. Joining the list is a real no-brainer choice for any coach who wants to stay current. Makes no sense not to join.”
