Long term

athletic development

Rep Ready advocates the principles of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD). Coach Jags believes it is important to educate and make his athletes aware of the 7 stages of the development.

Our belief is in building strong foundations first to help create a physical and inner strength that empowers the young people we work with to be their best, not only in their chosen sport but beyond that into their future lives. 

We approach our coaching with a view to developing long-lasting behaviour patterns where physical and mental health remains a priority and an area in their lives that they thrive in. 



Person First

Before any type of training session commences our philosophy of “person first” means we like to find out about you! At the start of each session we are interested to know how you are feeling physically and also mentally, are you tired or energized? How is school, work, or uni going? Is there anything external going on that may distract from this training session? All of this information will determine the outcome of the session and will tell Coach Jags how to adjust his style to get the very best out of you.

Providing a training session for the “person” first and foremost will provide a sense of self-efficacy; they believe they will succeed even if they are unsure how.

athlete second

We coach many people that play multiple sports, they are athletes in their own rights, with many demanding priorities. So, what is needed to enhance their performance? Do we need to improve their strength, or is it a conditioning-based priority? Perhaps their requirement is to get more minutes on the paddock or court. Has this individual had a massive week of training and we are going to run a stretch or mobility session to help restore the body for the gruelling week ahead.

Injuries on the field also happen,  so we need to consider if the session will be helping them with their rehab, or if we need to work around that injury to improve their mental state.

player third

Finally, the person and athlete become a player in their sport! 

Coach Jags prepares the individual for their chosen sport, focusing on their specific skill set, so they can go back to their team and perform 100%.

about our

setting the foundations

Just like our philosophy, our facility is simple. Coach Jags does not get caught in the latest fads or machines. He taps into the individual and scales all movements according to their ability and training age. 

This means stripping the individual right back and programming the right movement that suits their capabilities to ensure they continue their training well beyond their sporting years. Our sessions are either conducted in our small private studio based in Caringbah, which are all via appointment only, or our outdoor sessions are run at a variety of locations depending on the outcome we desire.

Jags grew up in the coastal township of Sawtell where he played rugby league, rowed surf boats and did what most other kids did in that region, ride bmx bikes, dirt bikes and surfed. He pursued his dream of playing rugby league at the highest level and set off to Sydney at the age of 18. 

It was in Sydney when he discovered the world of gymnasiums weightlight, bodybuilding and powerlifting, which ultimately changed the course of his life. 

As a seasoned strength and conditioning coach he has run several training studios, worked with the ARLD/NRL delivering programs to both primary and high schools. He has also coached various sporting teams from junior level right through to international level. These sports include team sports such as rugby league, soccer, oz tag, water polo and handball to individual sports like swimming and Jiu-Jitsu.

here's what they're saying


Liam’s journey at Rep Ready began to improve his strength conditioning as part of his rugby league training. Ian “Jags” Jagger’s personalised approach to each of his students has meant Liam’s 1:1 session are mch more than a weights workout, with his rsilience on and off the field plus his overall mental health benefitin just as much as his physical health. Jags is the ultimate mentor

For the past 12 months, my son Brady has been fortunate enough to have Ian (“Jags”) assist with his fitness journey.
Not only has Jags helped Brady with the physical side of his league development, he has also been a crucial part of his mental strength and attitude which has proved invaluable through such a challenging and tough year.
We can’t thank Jags enough, he is a champion human being.

I love playing footy and really wanted to do the “extras” outside of training with my team to improve my game. I found Rep Ready and really enjoy the focus one-on-one training brings, Jags can really tailor the session to suit me and the sports I play. I was a bit intimidated tackling bigger girls when I first started playing League and I’ve noticed that through my training sessions my strength has improved. Jags also showed me how to tackle safely so I knew what to do. Jags has also helped me a lot with my nutrition, I play heaps of sport and needed to know how to fuel my body so that I could perform better. We went through what I was eating and made some small easy changes to my diet that has really helped. What I didn’t expect through training with Jags was the chance to meet other older and experienced girls that had played at a National level in their sports, doing a training session with them was really cool.
