Widnes Vikings’ new Performance Analyst and First Team Strength and Conditioning Coach, Adam Daniels, is looking forward to getting pre-season underway when the first team squad return to training next month. 

Daniels is currently away at the 2017 Rugby League World Cup with Wales Rugby League as Head of Strength and Conditioning. He will return to the Vikings to work alongside Tim Holmes, with the duo partnering to lead the Club’s Strength and Conditioning setup for 2018.

Adam has built considerable experience in rugby league, having also held roles with Wales Rugby League, St Helens and North Wales Crusaders. He is looking forward to putting these skills to use, alongside Holmes, when the pre-season begins.  

“I can’t wait to get started,” he said.

“It is a role that I’ve been aspiring to do for the last 7 or 8 years, and to do it in a full-time environment is something that I’m relishing. 

“On a day-to-day basis, I’ll be working alongside Tim Holmes, covering all the strength and conditioning elements. This could be from designing bespoke gym programmes to on-field conditioning sessions. 

“Every skills session will also be videoed by myself and clipped, so we can provide instant feedback to the players.”

Daniels is confident that his partnership with Tim Holmes will be a successful one.

“I’m really looking forward to working alongside Tim” he said.

“Tim is somebody that I respect massively. He has great knowledge in strength and conditioning, as well as nutrition. He is a great bloke and we have a working great relationship. 

“It’s exciting because it’s a completely new venture for both of us, and we’re already bouncing ideas off each other. 

“We really want to make a difference when the boys come back in. We want it to be a slightly new environment for them, and we want to give them all the right support to achieve things on-the-field this season.“
