Tom King

Owner & Head Coach

My career in sports performance begun at Liverpool John Moore's University in 2013 (showing my age here...) where I undertook studies in BSc Science and Football Hons, graduating in 2016 with a 1st Class degree, and achieving an award for the highest grade in the cohort.

During my time in university I gained vital experience in the professional sporting environment, with placements and part-time roles at Everton FC, Sedgley Tigers and Port Vale FC. Upon graduating, I enrolled onto a PhD degree in Applied Sports Science and begun working as a 1st Team Fitness Coach at Liverpool FC. You can check out my research here.

After 5 successful years at Liverpool FC, Premier League, Champions League and World Club Cup success, I departed my role to embark on a business venture which is now known by the name King Performance Ideology limited.

Three things you should know about me:

- I specialise in athlete profiling

- Bring me coffee and we're friends for life!

- My Spotify playlist is better than yours...
