Fontys University for Applied Science
Frans Bosch earned a degree in Physical Education in 1977. Since 1980 he worked in athletics, coaching elite sprinters and Olympic high jumpers and for some years as the national coach for jumping events. Since 2005 Bosch teaches at the Fontys University for applied sciences in sports, mainly in the field of anatomy, biomechanics, strength training and motor learning.
Bosch has given numerous presentations on training related topics all over the world and frequently works internationally as a consultant in sport and as conference speaker on training related subjects. Clients in recent years are the English Institute of Sports, Wales National Team Rugby and others.
Together with Ronald Klomp he wrote “Running, biomechanics and exercise physiology applied in practice”, published in the Netherlands in 2001 and translated in English in 2005. In 2012 “Krachttraining en coördinatie, een integratieve benadering” (Strength training and coordination, an integrated approach) was published in the Netherlands.
A sport scientist, Bosch has made his entry in the baseball world after the Dutch Federation knocked on his door to help develop new coaching strategies for the Dutch Baseball Academies. A renowned speaker all over the world, Bosch was introduced to the baseball crowd at the ECC in Rotterdam where he spoke in 2011 and 2012, busting many coaching myths of a tradition-heavy sport.
