Richard Kirby

Human Performance Expert

Why should you work With me?

Richard has a vast wealth of experience spanning the last decade in elite performance. As Lead Strength and Conditioning coach for Wolverhampton Wanderers FC in the English Premier league, he was the youngest first team S&C coach in the country first rising to this position at just 21 years old. Richard also privately coaches Olympic and world championship level athletes across an impressive array of different sports and ages. Along this journey Richard was a key part of Wolves Record breaking season whereby only 5 injuries spanning 88 days were recorded; the next lowest ever was 13 injuries spanning 461 days set by Leicester city during their Premierleague winning season. This is an achievement that many experts do not believe will ever be bettered in modern premiership football.

Richard holds a Masters degree from the university of Birmingham and since 2020 has been researching into a PhD in performance science, as well as UKSCA accreditation, NSCA certification as a S&C specialist, ISAK anthropometrist and UK anti doping accredited advisor certifications.

Richard’s philosophy is to incorporate a holisitic approach, encompassing all of his diagnostic, analytic and interpretive skills to create rounded athletes who are robust, resilient to injury and ready to unlock their full potential.
