My name is Ellis Brindley and I am a recent graduate from the University of Derby in Sport and Exercise Science. I am currently looking for opportunities within the development of performance, specifically, strength and conditioning.
Since finishing my specialisations in Injury Rehabilitation and Strength and Conditioning, I have been driven to pursue a career within this area of athletic development. Upon receiving a first class grade in both my specialisations I began gaining experience at a national 3 rugby club (Sutton Coldfield RFC). I worked underneath a physiotherapist, who dealt with the injury side at the club including the rehabilitation element of major injuries. I also ran a 4 month strength and conditioning protocol as part of pre-season interventions to aid the athletic development of the players during the early stages of the 16/17 season. I delivered sessions through into the season developing warm ups and metabolic conditioning activities to suit the needs of these athletes. My most recent work is as a strength and conditioning coach for alpine skiers during the off-season where I would prepare athletes for the following winter race season or race camps during the off season.
Please find attached my CV for further information as to what I can offer, qualifications and further experience.
