About The Author:
Allen Hedrick, M.A., CSCS*D, FNSCA, coach practitioner, was named the first-ever head strength and conditioning coach at Colorado State University at Pueblo in September 2009. He earned his bachelor’s degree from California State University at Chico and his master’s degree from California State University at Fresno. For three years he worked as a strength and conditioning coach at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He then worked as the assistant strength and conditioning coach at the United States Air Force Academy, also in Colorado Springs, for three years before being named the head strength and conditioning coach at the academy, a position he held for nine years. In that position Hedrick was responsible for the strength and conditioning programs for football and volleyball while overseeing the academy’s entire strength and conditioning program.
Hedrick then moved to the National Strength and Conditioning Association's headquarters, also in Colorado Springs, as the head strength and conditioning coach and later as education coordinator. Hedrick stayed in that position until moving into his current position at CSU-Pueblo.
