Andrew Moore, who earned a master’s degree in exercise and sport studies from William Paterson University in 2017, was recently appointed to the New Jersey state advisory board of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).  Moore has been a coach with Precision Sports Performance in East Hanover, NJ since its inception.

“One of my greatest strengths as a coach is my ability to work with athletes from all different sports, even those I do not have competition experience with,” says Moore.

“The most valuable skills I gained from William Paterson have been my ability to write professionally, research effectively, and present material,” he says. The experience of making several presentations in graduate school gave him the skills and opportunity to present at such important conferences as the 2017 and 2018 NSCA NJ State Clinics, he adds.

Moore has been an active member of the NSCA for several years and will be responsible for planning and running state clinics, selecting speakers, and promoting the organization.

He is certified by NSCA as a registered strength coach and a strength and conditioning specialist. He currently competes as an Olympic weightlifter, and has trained and competed in mixed martial arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) is a nonprofit professional organization composed of more than 45,000 members and certified professionals who further industry standards as researchers, educators, strength coaches, personal trainers, and other roles in related fields.
