Get to know Me (Mike)


Mike Ellis

Hey, I am Mike Ellis, the one man band behind Parabellum Coaching.

I gained my degree in Sports Development and Coaching, became a qualified coach in handball, football and goalkeeping and spent a further 2.5 years surf instructing on cruise ships. When I came home, I completed my Level 2 and 3 Personal Training qualifications, spent some learning the ropes personal training with a number of individuals, and then combined my love of teaching/coaching and fitness, and founded Parabellum.

My goal with Parabellum is to help people build strength, push their performance, and both personal and fitness development.

I aim to help you become comfortable and confident to achieve your goals independently, but continually progress sustainably!

Over the last 3 years of Personal Training, I have covered areas such as Injury and Rehab work, Performance, Muscle Building and weight Loss Goals and as a Nutrition Coach, cover dietary assistance aswell.

I have always had a passion for fitness, from cross country/runing, badminton and football, to now Brazilian Ju Jitsu and Strength Training.

I, myself, have worked through the phases of getting in shape for a Photoshoot, have played multiple sports and coached within them, and am currently competing in Brazilian Ju Jitsu whilst also working on healing an injury. Throughout all of this, I have gained the extensive background to relate to and help you achieve your fitness goals.

Strength, Performance and Development only scratches the surface of what I want for anyone involved and it's symbol being more than just Fitness.
