Whilst I was employed with Sportscotland Institute of Sport as an international coach for Scotland and GB I had the pleasure of working with Kirsty Sinclair. We had many long trips abroad to competitions all round the world and she was excellent and interesting company.  I was involved in programmes for Elite athletes competing at the highest level, Kirsty’s role was to ensure these athletes were ready for competition so phased and stepped fitness programmes were designed for each individual.

We were both involved in the 2010 Paralympic games and Kirsty's preparation for this very specific field was thorough and meticulous, building detailed profiles of each individual which allowed Strength and Conditioning coaches to design a fitness program based on the physical ability of those individuals. The physical transformation was truly life changing for many of those involved as they developed and grew new skills and abilities, this was really pioneering work.

Her knowledge, expertise and understanding of the specific needs of every individual was second to none.
