Kevin Paxton

Head of Academy Sports Science, Leicester City FC

Kevin has worked in professional sports for over 18 years and is a BASES High Performance Sport Accredited Practitioner and UKSCA accredited Strength & Conditioning Coach. During his time in professional soccer and cricket he has studied extensively S & C and sport science practises worldwide using these experiences to consult for several international organisations including Nike, Scottish FA and delivered to universities and conferences nationally and internationally. His areas of specialism are firstly in classifying exercises in a progressive and regressive manner to target prioritising key areas of athletic development in cycles during the various stages of maturity. Secondly Kevin has been innovative in the use of physiological monitoring techniques to quantify and then classify the results to give a simplistic meaning for affecting the delivery of physical and technical training sessions to produce the desired individual specific responses within a team environment.
