TESTIMONIALS

Read more about what our partners have to say about Tim and Gabbett Performance Solutions.

Tim was asked by myself to present a workshop on ‘workloads and Injury’ to our staff at BWFC. Tim’s knowledge and experience inspired and provoked good debate from our Performance staff leading to a stimulating session. Tim offered practical solutions to key problem areas and gave us a different approach to think about on the areas of recovery and fatigue as possible indicators for soft tissue injury. He mixed sound and robust data with strategies to adopt in the ‘real world’ of elite sport. I would recommend Tim and his workshops to any sports teams and their support staff to enhance their working practices.

Mark Leather, Head of Performance, Bolton Wanderers FC

A smart coach once said a player’s availability is their best ability. Thus, proper training is the best method and should always be the foundation of injury prevention for every performance staff and team. Too often we spend so much time chasing injuries that have occurred by not having the proper data and process to educate coaches and drive change in workload management. Through working we Tim, we were able to develop and refine our workload management process ensuring we have effective and efficient data and data analysis plans to drive change, effecting the health of our team, which has a strong correlation to reaching the ceiling for on-field success. Best of all his information is research validated in an applied sports environment allowing us to bring academic quality information to the team performance environment effectively.

There is a consistency around the way Tim operates.  He works hard for the team.  Day-to-day, you know he is going to give you 100%.

Wayne Bennett, Premiership Winning National Rugby League Coach

Train smarter and harder is on the top of my list for movement and performance practitioners of all backgrounds! From slide one Tim brought high energy and his vast experience to elevate his content and methods on athletic performance and readiness. The practical break-outs really help connect the content of the evidence and concepts to the context of working with athletes and patients. Tim presents the material in a way that prepared us to immediately integrate key concepts into our work environments. My expectations were well exceeded! Thank you Tim!

Christopher J. Nentarz PT, CSTS, NASM-PES, NSTI. Owner, Move Well Physical Therapy

 Tim’s workshop to the England Cricket performance team was excellent.  His take home message was practical and thought provoking, but well supported by top-class applied data.  He also really worked hard to tailor the content to our needs, working with us in advance of the day.  All in all, an excellent value day for us.

Raphael Brandon PhD, Head of Science & Medicine, England & Wales Cricket

We used the services of Tim Gabbett to provide an independent assessment and critique of the high performance systems and procedures of the Bulldogs Elite NRL Football program. Tim was professional, diligent and provided a thorough report to the Club for future consideration. I would highly recommend Tim and his team.

Todd Greenberg, Former Bulldogs CEO (2008-2013) & Current Head of Football NRL

Tim brings a wealth of academic and practical experience to the delivery of his lectures and workshops. His ability to transfer his knowledge and engage with coaches, players, sports medicine and fitness professionals from club to international level in the lecture theatre or the training field is second to none.

Garrett Coughlan, Medical Department, Irish Rugby Football Union

Tim provided an excellent session for the staff at our training ground. His knowledge of the area backed up with good science and lots of experience made for a thought provoking discussion. His acute understanding of the environment ensured that the presentations and ensuing discussions were relevant and productive. The whole session proved extremely worthwhile.

Jack Nayler, Sports Scientist & Conditioning Coach, Real Madrid FC

I have known Tim for several years and have used his expertise on a consultancy basis during that time. He has researched and published many interesting and relevant papers on rugby league over a long period of time.

Tim has developed an acute awareness of the physical and mental demands of playing rugby league at an elite level. His understanding of the game has meant that his studies are relevant and his findings insightful regarding the preparation for and recovery from the demands of rugby league.

Tim has always displayed an enthusiastic and thorough approach to any project I have been involved with and I would recommend him highly to any organisation seeking to improve performances on an individual or team basis.

Neil Henry (Assistant Coach QLD Maroons 2006 – 2009; Head Coach Canberra Raiders 2007- 2008; North Queensland Cowboys 2009 – 2013)

I have sourced the services of Tim for a number of years now in the area of research. Firstly during my years at Melbourne Storm (NRL) we conducted a study on workrate demands of different positions in rugby league, this information assisted me in prescribing loads for pre-season that were position and match specific. I have continued seeking assistance from Tim now at St Kilda FC (AFL) for research ideas. Tim is up to date with the latest research and is an excellent sounding board when thinking of ideas to improve performance.

Simon Kearney, Sports Science Manager, St. Kilda Football Club

Tim’s dedication to the cause and attention to detail was clearly evident in my time working with him at the Queensland Academy of Sport. He had a willingness to be part of the ‘team’ and to ‘add value’ to the football program. This, together with his enthusiastic approach led to some important studies on footballers within the game including movement and decision making.
