    About the Author

    Allen Hedrick, MA, CSCS,*D, FNSCA, was named the first-ever head strength and conditioning coach at Colorado State University–Pueblo in 2009. Hedrick has a bachelor’s degree from California State University–Chico and a master’s degree from California State University–Fresno. Following completion of his master’s degree studies, Hedrick was hired as a strength and conditioning coach at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Initially, Hedrick was hired to a one-year appointment, but that position evolved into a permanent position and Hedrick was moved into that role. After working for three years at the Olympic Training Center, Hedrick was selected to fill the assistant strength and conditioning coach position at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. Hedrick stayed in that position for three years before being named the head strength and conditioning coach, a position he held for nine years. In that position, Hedrick was responsible for the Air Force Academy’s strength and conditioning programs for football and volleyball and for overseeing the entire strength and conditioning program.

    Hedrick then moved to the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s headquarters, also in Colorado Springs; his initial position was head strength and conditioning coach, and he later served the education department as education coordinator. Hedrick stayed in that position until changing to his current position at Colorado State University–Pueblo.

    During his career, Hedrick has worked with a variety of athletes, from elementary-school-age athletes to athletes at the professional and Olympic levels, including athletes who have won medals in the Olympic Games (Bonnie Blair in speed skating and Matt Ghaffari in Greco-Roman wrestling). A frequent writer, Hedrick has been published over 100 times, in a variety of publications, on topics related to strength and conditioning. He has written a book on strength and conditioning for football and created numerous DVDs on topics related to strength and conditioning. In addition, Hedrick has presented at numerous conferences and clinics, both nationally and internationally, including in Guatemala, Japan, Australia, and China. In 2003, Hedrick was selected by his peers as the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year.
