About Me

Welcome to Vassallo Conditioning – a personal consultancy service offering Strength and Conditioning support to athletes, coaches, teams and educational institutions. My intention is for this website to be as authentic as possible in portraying who I am, what I do and how I can help your physical preparation.


As a coach, I am passionate about understanding and improving all aspects of human movement and in turn linking that forward to physical performance. I endeavour to coach each person as a unique and valued individual. In doing so, I aim to exemplify role model behaviour. I commit to tasks wholeheartedly, striving to go above and beyond what is requested of me. I consider discipline, diligence and open mindedness to be the key tenets underpinning learning and personal growth. Should the opportunity present itself to work with you, the reader, it is my hope that all of the aforementioned quickly becomes apparent in your appraisal of my professional practice.
