Dr Phil Price

Programme Director - Strength and Conditioning Science

About Research Media

Phil is Programme Director for BSc Strength and Conditioning Science and also lectures on the MSc S&C programme and the Masters of Research programme at St Mary’s University. Phil has been teaching at St Mary’s for nine years.

Phil completed his BSc in Sport, Health and Exercise Science at St Mary’s University back in 2008, completed his Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCHE) in 2011, and his MSc in Strength and Conditioning Science in 2012. Phil completed PhD in Bioengineering from St Mary’s University in 2018, which investigated the use of a musculoskeletal model for the assessment of knee osteoarthritis.

Phil is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA), an Accredited Strength and Conditioning Coach (UKSCA), and is a former lead tutor for the British Weightlifting Association (BWL). Phil has over 8 years of experience in S&C delivery to athletes from a wide range of sports, including rugby, ice hockey and combat sports. He is the former head S&C coach of Ealing Trailfinders RFC and has worked with athletes ranging from national to international level.

Away from St Mary’s, Phil enjoys attempting all sports, competes in obstacle course racing, and loves mountaineering and reading.
