Tom moved to Cardiff in 2014 to study Sport and Exercise Science at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
During his undergraduate studies Tom developed a keen interest in clinical exercise physiology which led him to persue a Masters (Msc.) in Sport and Exercise Science.
Tom’s Msc. allowed him to further develop his theoretical understanding, refine his practical skills as well as gain greater exposer to more technical physiological equipment and procedures. While on his Msc. Tom was also able to share his breadth of knowledge with undergraduate Physiologists through a lecturing role at Cardiff MET.
Tom, never one to rest on his laurels has worked tirelessly while studying and has had the privilege to be part of the extremely talented physiologist teams at Sport Wales and Welsh Triathlon. Not content with this Tom has also worked in secondary schools from undergoing profiling of staff and students to lactate threshold testing in swimming pools on high end athletes, Tom has vast experience working with varying populations with evidence-based testing.
Tom has continued to work as a research intern within a nation-wide NHS cardiac rehabilitation study facilitating the study and potential advocacy of high intensity interval exercise training in cardiac rehab. This opportunity to work in such a novel project has further allowed Tom to develop the application of testing procedures within a clinical setting as well as to working within an established health service.
On completion of his Masters degree, Tom was successful in being selected onto a research PhD at Cardiff Metropolitan University which in turn has led to his employment at Agile Therapy. Tom is leading Physiologist for Agile Therapy with a view to helping everyone improve their health to allow them to be more Agile.
When Tom isn’t doing Physiological testing and his PHD he has always had a keen interest in rugby. Since an injury curtailed Tom’s playing career he is very active as a keen rugby coach at Cardiff MET mens rugby club.
