Elite Performance Sports Consultancy was started by Director Craig McGinlay. The main objective of EP Sports Consultancy was to provide back room staff support for elite athletes or athletes who have the ambition to perform at the elite level.
Director Craig McGinlay explains ‘A driving factor as to why I wanted to set up E.P. was that there are so many athletes out there who do not know how to take their training to the next stage. With the support of the back room staff at EP Sports Consultancy. in the form of Nutritionists, Psychologists, Sports Scientists, Strength & Conditioning Coaches, Fitness Coaches, Biomechanics Coaches, Physiotherapists, we can help any athlete strive to achieve their goals and objectives.’
Craig has experience of working with many athletes from Premier League Football and Rugby at Club Level and also both sports at International Level. Furthermore, he has further experience of working with Commonwealth and Olympic Games athletes in a wide variety of disciplines such as Hockey, Badminton, Swimming, Shooting, and more. When working for the Scottish Institute of Sport he was able to gain experience in working with Paralympic athletes in sports such as Cycling, Curling, Rugby, and more.
