About Me

Who I am

My name is Will Heffernan and amongst other things I’m a strength and conditioning coach. I bet people that know me thought I was going to say that ‘My name is Will Heffernan and I’m an alcoholic’ but that would be a lie and I’ve no idea how that rumour started…although I’ve a vague recollection that it might have been me that started the rumour but I think I might of been drunk at the time.

As I was saying…I am a strength and conditioning coach working mainly in the area of weight training and fitness training for sport but now I also work in a variety of other areas. I have worked with a large number of sports at everything from club, national and international level. Working with the full spectrum of athletes from juniors to masters athletes and both men and women…I’ve a couple of athletes that might be trans-gender as well…but I’ll let them work that out for themselves.


I’ve previously worked in Ireland for 10 years…from 2000ish to 2010ish. Now I work all over Australia but am currently based in and around Melbourne.

Anything Else?

If there’s anything I’ve left out or that you want to know about me that you can’t find out from the blog then just post you questions here in the comments section and I will answer them as soon as I can.

  1. Hi Will,

    Was rowing competitively over the past few years but damaged a disc in my back in early Nov last year which killed off my season – have been doing a bit of indoor and more recently outdoor biking but looking to train for Gael Force West adventure race in late August. Back is still at me a bit – can you assess – hear you are opening north side – do you have a date yet and where might i get more info.

    Thanks in advance,


    • Mate,
      This was definitely the wrong place to leave this question…this is like the blogs ‘broom closet’. Drop myself or Barry and email and we’ll give you all the information you want.

  3. Hello Will,

    I’m Marko Dimitrov from Serbia and I’m a professional strength coach and competitor. I was wondering if you would like to trade links since our blogs have related content? I would link to your blog and you would link to mine http://squatracktips.com in your “Sites I like” section. Please, let me know if you are interested?

    With respect,

  4. Hi Will

    I am here in Galway where I work in the galway city gym I am in dublin at the weekend and was wondering if it might be possible to do a one off session in your gym where i pay some sort of guest fee if you are ever in galway ur welcome to train in our place which is known all over the country.

    Would really appreciate it.

    Regards Adrian

  5. Will Heffernan is a moron. The guy specializes in wrecking the joints of young, growing athletes.

    The last man on earth who any serious athlete should see for Training for Sport is Will Heffernan.

    If one word sums up Will, it’s ‘clueless’.

  6. I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’m a moron…that seems a little harsh…and destroying athletes is more of a hobby than a job.

  7. You seem very arrogant Will from reading your about page and what you have to say about Poliquin. How many olympians have you trained?
