Finn Kenny

Exercise Scientist

Finn is an experienced strength and conditioning coach with a keen interest in guiding individuals to move well, recover from injury and perform at their highest potential. 

Having gone through the Victorian basketball pathway himself with state team appearances as a junior and four years in the SEABL/NBL1 competition, Finn knows what training at the elite level looks like. Conversely, suffering an ACL injury in 2019, Finn can empathise with injured people (athlete or otherwise) as they navigate their return to competition, work and life. 

Specifically, Finn is fascinated with the complexity of lower limb injuries. As such, he recently had his journal article accepted for publication in the JASC, titled ‘Modifiable Mechanisms of Hamstring Strain Injury’. His experience with Eastern Ranges Football Club has further increased his competence in ‘bullet-proofing’ athletes from injury and maximising every individual’s physical capabilities.
