Amar Melandri- 2016 strength & conditioning coach

Logan Metro Football Club is proud to announce Amar Melandri as the club’s strength and conditioning coach for 2016.

Amar was part of the Eastern Suburbs F.C.coaching staff that won the 2015 BLK silver boot competition.

Amar graduated with his Bachelor of Applied Science from Queensland University of Technology as well as being an Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) with ESSA. His love for sport led him to this profession where he represented at state level with football (soccer), cricket and athletics. AFL, tennis and rugby (Go! All Blacks) are also passions where he has worked with various levels of athletes in these sports which has now led him to undertake his Masters within the area.

Originally from Perth, Amar’s psychology in exercise physiology is more a rounded lifestyle approach with long term and sustained benefits. His principles are in developing a foundation to prevent injuries, grow in a functional and athletic capacity in movement mechanics, maintenance of cardiac, respiratory and metabolic conditions, eventually to live a better quality of life.

LMFC president Samuel Escobar was humbled by the announcement, claiming it as an enormous show of faith in the club by Football Brisbane and validation of the club’s foundation only four years ago.

“This is a momentous day for us,” Escobar said.

“We are extremely grateful to be accepted into the Football Brisbane competitions, and tremendously proud of the work of everyone at the club that has lead to this moment.”

“When we founded the club four years ago, we very ambitiously set a target to enter the Football Brisbane competitions within five seasons.”

“To have achieved this goal within four years is a testament to the passion our people have for this club, and the overwhelming way our community has embraced us as their own.”

LMFC Head Coach Pat Castillo was similarly thrilled.

“This is massive for our club,” Castillo said.

“We’ve now got an amazing platform to showcase the talent that Logan has.”
