Meet IHM Coach, Chris Honor. He is a qualified Strength & Conditioning coach and has been working with us since September. Since then his methodical and consistent work and application of his specialist knowledge has started to have a massive impact on our player’s fitness and performance.

We first met Chris when we made contact with Bury Women’s & Girls FC back in 2018. At the time, Chris was managing the u.18s team at Bury and had agreed to take a look at one of your young female student players from Nairobi, in Kenya. Chris was impressed with Unaizah and welcomed her to join training  from where she quickly earned a regular place in the team. Unaizah continued to train and play with the team throughout the whole of the 1018-19 season, which culminated in them playing in the county finals, when she was made Captain.

We recognised Chris as a great coach and mentor, as well as a wonderful role model for our young players. So, when a vacancy came up at IHM the chance to bring Chris onto the coaching team was welcomed by us all.

In this interview, Chris talks about the benefits of having a principled fitness training & testing regime at IHM and how he and the other coaching staff use this innovation in order to maximise each individual player’s performance and fitness.
