Strength & Conditioning with Coach Barrett


The Dinos Men's Rugby program have been working with Coach Barrett Donovan at Next Evolution Athletics for the past two years and have seen significant results in player performance, recovery, and injury prevention. Barrett brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our program and has added to our team culture by incorporating his own, and our shared core values into his training and coaching. Barrett works with the Dinos Men on campus in the U of C strength and conditioning facilities, as well as out of Trec Fit Lab for strongman training, and yoga session run by Next Evolution Athletics Co-Owner, Erin Donovan.


Director of Men's Rugby, Rayner Hart, sits down with Coach Barrett as they discuss his background in S&C, coaching philosophy, training implements and methodologies, and his taste in music.
