NAME: Mark Twiggs
DATE OF BIRTH: 4/4/1980
JOB TITLE: HEAD OF STRENGTH & CONDITIONING
DATE JOINED CHIEFS: June 2009
ABOUT MARK: A former Royal Marine, Mark joined Exeter Chiefs in 2009 as a player rehabilitation coach, working alongside then Head of S&C Paddy Anson and his assistant Dave Sylvester, themselves former Royal Marines.
Formerly a rehab and physical training instructor with the Marines, based at the Commando Training Centre in Lympstone, Mark made the switch from service life to that of a professional club look easy.
He was part of the club’s coaching staff as they got promoted out of the Championship in 2010 and when the opportunity arose in 2012 to take on the role of Head of Strength and Conditioning at the Chiefs, Mark was the ideal candidate for the role.
Since then, he has overseen all aspects of the club’s conditioning programme, developing the Chiefs into arguably one of the fittest sides in professional rugby.
