Over 6 years experience working with professional and amateur athletes both as a Strength & Conditioning Coach and a Rehabilitation Specialist. This includes teams such as Ospreys U16's, Swansea RFC and Harvard University (multiple sports). I am passionate about all aspects of human performance which has stemmed from my academic studies and personal experience as an athlete and coach. I was Head of the Medical Team for Winchester Rugby Club where I provided pitch-side medical cover, post-operative and injury rehabilitation whilst also liaising with the doctors and strength and conditioning team. I have worked with male and female athletes of all ages and abilities from Olympians, professional ballet dancers, semi-professional teams (Chichester City Ladies FC) and recreational individuals. In 2015 I completed a full-time strength and conditioning internship at Harvard University. I worked with a number of team such as ice hockey, lacrosse, swimming, wrestling and athletics; coaching National, International and Professional athletes.

It's always good to receive your feeback...

  Just a quick line Chris to say that I’ve just got back from the second lot of skiing this year and that the knees have held up well thanks to your expert advice and the exercise regime you gave me. I wouldn’t have thought it possible to keep on with the skiing – and it probably wouldn’t have been without your intervention. 

Mr N Parkes

  I was very pleased with the treatment that my daughter received at Swansea Physiotherapy. I have used Chris & Co several times over the past five years and would definitely recommend.
