07 Mar FSI Master Football Strength & Conditioning Coach Students Drive Cercle Brugge’s Physical Performance Dominance
Cercle Brugge’s remarkable physical performance on the pitch has been turning heads across Europe, and it is worth noting that the club’s success has been driven by a team of experts, including students of the Football Science Institute (FSI) Master Football Strength & Conditioning Coach program.
According to the latest data, Cercle Brugge leads the way in High-Speed Running (HSR) distance covered and ranks 4th in sprint distance per match among all the clubs in the Big 5 leagues plus Belgium. This remarkable achievement is a testament to the club’s commitment to physical performance and the expertise of their team of professionals.
Stefanos Giogos (July – December) and Roj Murad (January to April), FSI interns who served as first team physical performance coaches, are both FSI Master Football Strength & Conditioning Coach students. Their training and education in sports science have enabled them to make a significant contribution to Cercle Brugge’s physical performance success during their FSI internships at the cub. Their responsibilities included assisting the first team in various performance areas, such as pitch training, gym workouts, data analysis, and nutrition.
Haris Apostolidis, recently hired as U23 assistant coach and physical coach, is also an FSI Master Football Strength & Conditioning Coach student and a former first team intern. His expertise in physical training and player development has helped to prepare the club’s young players for the demands of first-team football.
Cercle Brugge’s success is a testament to the quality of education and training that the FSI Master Football Strength & Conditioning Coach program provides. As a leading institution in sports science, FSI is committed to developing the next generation of sports science professionals and helping them make a positive impact in the world of sports.
FSI congratulates Stefanos Giogos, Roj Murad, and Haris Apostolidis on their outstanding contributions to Cercle Brugge’s physical performance success, and would like to express gratitude to their Head of Performance, Eddie Lattimore, for his guidance and mentorship during their FSI internships at the club.
At FSI, we encourage other FSI students to apply for internships with professional clubs associated with FSI, so they too can enjoy such rewarding experiences as our students have had with Cercle Brugge.
