However, Paddy is keen to stress that it's very much a team effort and explained to the matchday programme in more detail, the roles that the other members of the Strength and Conditioning Department play in ensuring that the players remain in peak condition.
"Jamie Bain, our Strength and Conditioning Coach, is responsible for rehabilitation work. He liaises very closely with our Medical department to ensure that injured players return to fitness in the best possible shape.
"He is also responsible for liaising with our supplement providers, to ensure that the players are provided with exactly the right products pre and post match.
"That's a very important role, and all the staff are very aware of which substances are approved and which are prohibited."
Meanwhile, Eamonn Hyland, has a different focus and is often to be found peering at his MacBook as he analyses various pieces of data.
He's usually to be found on first team matchdays somewhere close to the coaches and analysts, easily spotted by the radio receiver connected to his MacBook.
"First and foremost, Eamonn is in charge of all our Sports Science back up. This involves talking all the GPS and RPE (Rating of Perceived Exertion) data and feeding this into our overall database.
"All the players' data is included in this database and can be updated up to ten times a day. It basically tells us who hard the players are working, and means that we have the information to hand to taper down a session, for example, if the guys have worked hard to that point.
"Eamonn's second primary role is to work with our Gold Group Academy players. He's trying to ensure that the senior Academy players are achieving the same, or as close as possible, fitness targets as the first team squad.
"Nigel needs to know that, if he calls up an Academy player for first team action, that they're going to ready for it. So far, we're pleased to say that our youngsters have done themselves proud when called upon."
There are two other full time members of the team - Ollie Adkins and Richard Clarke - and they also have similarly important roles.
"Both Ollie and Richard work with our Junior Academy players, the Silver group. The aim here is to try and make sure that, when we make decisions about who is to progress into the Gold group, the transition is as smooth as possible.
"We're realistic about what we expect from this group. A 16 year old is not going to achieve the same levels as a member of the first team squad. But we're educating them in the way we do things and what we expect from them.
"Members of the first team squad are weight tested four times a year, and twice for conditioning. The Academy players are tested and compared to those results."
Last, but not least, is the nutrition side of things, and Gloucester are working with one of the best in the business in Ed Tooley as Paddy explained.
"Ed works both with the group as a whole, and also with the players on a one to one basis, offering players individual nutrition players and advice once a month.
"He is advising them on lifestyle management when they're outside of the rugby environment, their nutrition, even what types of snacks they should be eating at what time of day.
"He also works closely with Marion and Georgie (from the Apple Tree Inn at Minsterworth), who provide our catering during the week at Hartpury, to ensure that the appropriate protein snacks and meals are there for the players.
"Marion and Georgie may not be from a professional sporting background, but they've been absolutely brilliant since they came on board over the summer.
"They even accommodated us for meals at the Apple Tree when we couldn't get to Hartpury recently because of the flooding.
"Matchdays are slightly different, of course, and the players have a range of pre and post match protein, carbohydrate, fats and electrolyte supplements to assist in their peak levels of performance.
"These are provided by our sponsors - Nutrition X, takeOmega3 and Gatorade - whose support we greatly value."
