Head Coach 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 time learning the ropes personal training with a number of individuals, and then combined my love of teaching/coaching and fitness, and founded Parabellum Coaching.

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, covered dietary assistance as well.

I have always had a passion for fitness, from cross country/running, badminton and football, to 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 them too. Throughout all of this, I have gained the extensive background to relate to and help you achieve your fitness goals.

The Vision

The Vision

Parbellum isn't just a Personal Training business, I always wanted it to be bigger and greater than helping develop physically, but supporting my clients mentally, physically and support them through every step of the process.

Strength, Performance and Development only scratches the surface of what I want for anyone involved; Parabellum is more than just going to the gym. I never want to be a PT that writes a plan, or sees you once a week, and that's it. I aim to support every step of the way, and there's no such thing as a silly question!

3 Aspects of Parabellum Coaching

To me, "Strength - Performance - Development" beautifully sums up my personal interests, but also my philosophy as a business. These are all important aspects which contribute to a high quality of life, but also an enjoyable fitness journey.
