Chris is an elite physical performance coach with a proven record of working within high performance sport.  In addition, Chris can apply his knowledge and skills to help anyone improve their strength, fitness and performance, whatever your sport/activity, whatever your level and regardless of age.


Chris has excellent experience from working with top athletes at Blackburn Rovers FC and Newcastle United.  He then took the brave step to return to University in 2017 to also train as a physiotherapist (gaining his Masters Degree at UCLAN in Preston) Chris is therefore a fully registered physiotherapist, a CSP member and HCPC certified.


Chris combines these medical skills with his extensive experience working within elite football performance and sports science, where he has held both senior fitness and strength & conditioning roles.


Key aspects of intervention options with Chris include injury prevention and rehabilitation optimisation strategies, movement analysis and intervention, manual techniques and therapies, neuromuscular readiness and load monitoring, enhancing tissue tolerance.

Currently Chris is combining physiotherapy and sports conditioning/injury management duties at Barrow AFC alongside consultant work as a performance and conditioning specialist with FYSICL, as well managing as training the new S&C staff at the football club.


On the basis of his assessment, Dr Robertson may recommend a consultation with Chris. Or indeed you may already know what you need from an external clinician.  Either way, to enquire about sessions with Chris please call reception on 01772 802200 to discuss.
