My name is Jack McLean and I’m the founder of Prepare Like a Pro. I have worked in the fitness industry for my entire life. I love training athletes so that they can reach their professional goals and become the best sportspeople that they can possibly be.
My foray into the fitness industry began in high school when I worked as a swimming teacher for adults. After finishing school, I completed my personal training certificate with the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers. As soon as I started working, I loved the motivation of my clients as they strived to learn and improve themselves.
As a young adult, I played football at Caulfield Grammarians and oversaw the team's pre-season program. I enjoyed coaching the football players to become better athletes for sport, not aesthetics.
As my career progressed, I became interested in Crossfit. Crossfit is a physically demanding sport from which I learned not just how far I could push myself, but about the importance of rest and recovery. By attaining this elite level of athletic performance, I understood how to listen to my body and learned how crucial it is to have a well-balanced program.
For the last five years, I have combined my interest in strength and conditioning with my passion for football and have been working, first at the Box Hill Hawks Football Club and then Hawthorn Football Club. For the last two years, I took on a role as the Development Strength & Conditioning Coach at Hawthorn Football Club and the High-performance Manager at Box Hill Football Club.
All aspects of my professional experience have fed into the creation of Prepare Like a Pro. My approach to athletic performance is one of mindset–recovery–nutrition and I apply this in everything that I do.
