Nathan Smith

Strength & Conditioning Coach

Nathan Smith

I was born and raised in Wellington, before moving to the big city of Palmerston North to complete my undergraduate studies. It was here that my passion for strength and conditioning came to fruition. I have always been curious as to how we can make people better (whether it is in the sporting arena, or in everyday living) through movement, and gym/field based exercise.

A keen sportsman myself, playing every sport under the sun growing up, I still manage to get out on a Saturday in the local Waikato club rugby competition. When I'm not chasing the oval ball, I like to get stuck in myself, being a "practice what you preach" type of person. 

I have been fortunate enough to work within a number of sporting contexts, including football, cricket, and rugby. I currently work within the male and female programme at Northern Districts Cricket, as well as overseeing the athlete development at Hamilton Boys High School for a number of premier teams. This extends to the junior programme where we teach movement confidence and competence within a gym setting.
