Dawn Strout, Strength and Conditioning Coordinator
Dawn Strout will begin her seventh year as the strength and conditioning coordinator at Colby in the 2016-17 academic year.
Strout is the first-ever strength and conditioning coordinator at Colby.
Strout brought a wealth of experience to Colby. She has been the Director of the Human Performance Lab and clinical coordinator at University of New England, a strength and conditioning coach for the U.S. Women’s Under-18 hockey team, the Maine State Coordinator for the President’s Fitness Challenge, and is owner of B-F.A.S.T., LLC. Strout does sport conditioning and strength training for junior high, high school, colleges, and adults. She also does wellness training with corporations.
Strout will work with Colby’s student-athletes, but also the general student body as well.
“The workouts are open to anyone,” Strout said. “I want to be able to give the most education to students and coaches as possible to leave them with a tool box of different programs that can be done in-season or out-of-season.”
Strout, who has a bachelor’s degree in physical education and a master’s degree in exercise science from the University of Maine, worked as head coach of strength training and conditioning and director of the fitness facility at Bowdoin College from 1997 to 2005. She also was head softball coach, assistant field hockey coach, and the physical education director during her time with the Polar Bears.
