About the Author

The admin and author of this site was a track-and-field athlete, now a sports performance specialist, a qualified strength & conditioning trainer and instructor, an independent researcher, a part-time track coach, a track-and-field statistician, and a correspondent for the IAAF. He has over 10 semesters of teaching experience in higher learning institutions.

Currently, he is the head of Strength and Endurance Sports (athletics, cycling, ice skating, triathlon, weightlifting, and sport climbing) at the National Sports Institute in Kuala Lumpur (2016- ), where he helps athletes and coaches with regards to their preparations (e.g. addresses performance gaps, planning, sports sciences) for numerous competitions including the international major championships/games.

He has traveled to a variety of major global sporting events such as the summer and winter games including the Asian Winter Games, Asian Championships, Commonwealth Championships, and World Junior Championships (to name a few) as a team official (sports scientist).

He is a member of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA); and accredited by the Australian Strength and Conditioning Association (ASCA Level 2 coach), the American Council on Exercise (personal trainer), as well as the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and the International Weightlifting Federations (IWF).

Also, a member of the Association of Track & Field Statisticians (ATFS), and the Association of Road Racing Statisticians (ARRS); so he is closely linked with the track and field statistics community from around the world. He is the compiler-cum-editor of the "Southeast Asian Athletics Annual" (copies were sold in >20 countries).

He studied physical education (BEd) and sports science (MS) at Universiti Putra Malaysia, and a PhD is the next stop of the journey, of course.

Important - how to pronounce his first name?

His name (Jad) is pronounced "Jæd" with J sound, and never with an A sound. Regardless of the language used (English, Malay, etc.), the pronunciation is the same.

For fitness and coaching, he consults stakeholders about sports performance in general but better known as a  'resource guy' in advanced resistance training, conditioning, sprint coaching, other athletics events. He has been invited to give a talk in various workshops, seminars, conferences involving national coaches, national and state sports schools, university students, private companies, the ministry of education, among others.
