About Thomas Gee

I was appointed as a Lecturer in the School of Sport and Exercise Science in 2012. Prior to this I gained my PhD from Northumbria University, which was titled ‘Recovery of Muscle Function following Strength Training in Rowers’. My research interests include the acute and longitudinal effects of strength training on performance and health in both athletic and sedentary populations.. I have previously worked as a research assistant employed dually by Teesside University and the English Institute of Sport (North East region). I actively provide strength and conditioning support to athletes based at the University and the local area and have achieved UKSCA accredited strength and conditioning coach status. Away from work, I compete in Strongman, Powerlifting and Natural Bodybuilding. In 2017 I placed 2nd in the UIBBN European Natural Bodybuilding Championships and 3rd place at the World Natural Strongman Championships and previously have competed in IPF World and European Powerlifting Championships, I was head coach of the Great Britain Powerlifting team for 2013 IPF World Championships.
