EP 43 – Jamie Tout – Fitter, Faster, Stronger Women Rugby Players and How Data Can Inform Better Practice


My guest on the show today is Jamie Tout (@JamieTout). Jamie is the Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Black Ferns, New Zealand’s senior women’s rugby team, who for the first time in history won the team of the year award the 2017 Wold Rugby Awards.

Jamie is also the Sport Performance Director for VX Sport, an athlete monitoring system used by elite and youth sports teams and individuals all over the world.

In this episode, Jamie and I discuss the changing game of women’s rugby, physically preparing aspiring players for success at the highest level, the use of monitoring technology in secondary education, the well-being of the student-athlete, and much more.

Jamie has some great insight, for both youth strength and condition coaches, and professionals interested in how data can inform better practice.
