'Work hard and the results will come. Learn the techniques correctly before increasing load and most importantly, enjoy your training and have a laugh!'




Chris Freebury | Senior Coach Educator

I am a firm believer in leading by example when It comes to coaching and that strength and conditioning can serve as a vital part of both physical and psychological aspects of athlete development.

As a Strength and Conditioning Coach I aim to address the multifactorial nature of sports and performance training including injury prevention, technical development and developing strength and other physical qualities that culminate towards improved athleticism and longevity of sporting performance.

To achieve this, I remain adaptable and continue to learn and develop to ensure programming and coaching that promotes a consistent, monitorable and process-driven approach in pursuit of  an individuals’ goals.





Kristian Mcphee | Coach Educator

"After training in such a wide variety of sports including Parkour, Rock Climbing, Gymnastics and Skiing it became apparent to me that strength and conditioning is not only a fantastic way to improve performance but it is also a way to achieve longevity. I believe that everybody deserves the opportunity to build 'body armour' through safe and effective training allowing them to be adaptable to challenges in all sports and activities. Mental discipline speed, flexibility, strength and co-ordination are the foundations of a capable athlete and I love building these components into everyone!"
