Athlete Training and Health Congratulates Micheál Cahill, PhD

VP, Performance and Sports Science earns doctorate, contributes to book

KATY, Texas – December 17, 2019 – Athlete Training and Health proudly celebrates recent achievements by Micheál Cahill, vice president, performance and sports science. Cahill has earned his PhD in sport and exercise science from New Zealand’s Auckland University of Technology, an ATH partner that also aims to bring the most advanced sports performance training to athletes of all ages and abilities.

Cahill’s doctorate research centered around how young athletes adapt to strength, speed and power, relative to their stage of physical adolescent maturity. Cahill, who joined ATH in May, examined the effectiveness of resisted sprinting to increased speed.

“Micheál is living ATH’s mission to be a leader in sports performance while maintaining a keen focus on the whole athlete and overall wellness, which includes sleep, nutrition and healthy habits,” said ATH Chief Strategy Officer Danny Cooper. “We are fortunate to have Micheál on our team.”

Throughout the PhD process, Cahill published six studies in scientific journals, with each study related to the most effective methods of developing speed in young athletes. Additionally, earlier this year Cahill was asked to co-author a chapter on speed development in young athletes in the second edition of the industry-leading book, “Strength and Conditioning for Young Athletes: Science and Application.”

In May, ATH formally announced it had finalized its evidence-based athlete training and professional coach development curriculum, created in partnership with Auckland University of Technology. ATH is now accepting applications – across all locations – for this internship program for spring and summer in 2020. Join the team and learn from some of the best minds in sports performance.
