Hodges was appointed one month ago after a season in the same position at Rochdale and worked under fitness coach Damien Roden at Manchester City.
"I'm responsible for the fitness and well-being of the first team and the development squad. I also oversee the academy and youth team," he told Cherries Player.
"So I look after the fitness on the field, their gym programmes, injury prevention and also their nutrition and general fitness.
"I'm really looking forward to finally getting underway in pre-season, putting the work in and hopefully having a good season with the lads."
Hodges will work closely with the squad as they return to training today (Wednesday) ahead of a strenuous training camp in Spain.
"Spain will be a really intense training camp. There will be no games there, so it's just five days of full-on training in warm weather. It will be a good chance for us to make sure that the players are where we want them to be," he explained.
"We'll be working very hard as it's a very important time for us and myself as a sports scientist. My aim is to get the lads as fit as possible and build a platform for the rest of the season."
The newly appointed sports scientist says that he wants the players fully fit for the Capital One Cup first round clash against Oxford United before the new campaign starts.
"I'm concentrating on doing my job properly, the players will hopefully stay fit so the manager can have his best players on the field," the 28-year-old added.
"Everyone's optimistic about the new season, everyone seems to be happy and we all want to have a good season."
