Hi I am John Cronin, AKA JC and I am a Professor in Strength and Conditioning.

I am primarily an educator, researcher and mentor. I have two passions – one related to improving human movement, athleticism and sporting performance via strength and conditioning, and the other related to sharing this information with others.

  • Published over 400 peer-reviewed papers
  • Supervised 30 PhD and 30 Masters students to completion
  • According to ResearchGate (RG) I have a research profile score of 45.45, my h-index is 74 (Google Scholar - GS),i10-index 220 (GS), had over 520,000 reads (~3000 reads per week), and over 18,500 citations (GS) - (March 2021).
