Shayaan Khan

Shayaan graduated with first class honours in 2017 and is now a Strength and Conditioning Coach, working with gymnasts and tennis players between the ages of 5-16 years. He also coaches badminton, squash, tennis and water polo adult athletes, in preparation for their season of sport.

"During my course I gained the theoretical knowledge that I needed to understand the biomechanics and physiological demands placed on an individual," said Shayaan. "My time at the University of Northampton also helped me develop as a person, to be able to communicate effectively and build successful relationships, which are important skills in the working environment."

As part of his first year studies, Shayaan gained experience with the Northampton Saints Rugby team, which allowed him to build his knowledge as a practitioner. He has also worked with Imperial College London and Milton Keynes Ladies Football team.
