The committee of the Old Geelong Football Club are excited to announce the appointment of Tom Davidson as our fitness coach for the 2013 pre-season. 
Tom is known to many connections of the OGS and is a quality person with a signifcant amount of experience that will provide the necessary support the players need to prepare themselves for this year.
As a reminder to the players and recruits of the OGFC in 2013, pre-season training will resume on Wednesday the 30th January.  Tommy and the other coaches look forward to a good attendance on night one!   
Tom takes over this role from Peter Power who reinvented the OGS pre-season in 2012 by bringing in variety with his strenth training, muscular endurance and aerobic conditioning.  We thank Pete for his valuable contribution and look forward to his continued support and guidance for years to come. 
Davidson was drafted from Tasmania to Collingwood Football Club aged 18 and was on their list from from 2002-2005. In 2005 he was drafted to Western Bulldogs Football Club, for season 2006. Serious injuries including two knee reconstructions, a wrist reconstruction, groin and achilles injuries cut short his career in professional football. 
Going through the process of rehabilitating these injuries helped develop a very keen interest in how the body and mind functions and responds to physical activity. 
Continually updating his knowledge and evolving as a trainer has lead Tommy to opportunities training actors and musicians in Hollywood, sporting teams in Melbourne and a variety of different clients in Melbourne.
