Khody Ellis to Join Blue Devils FC Training Staff as Strength and Conditioning Coach.

Oakville, On – November 19, 2020

The Blue Devils FC staff are proud to welcome Khody Ellis as the Academy’s new Strength and Conditioning Coach.

Technical Director Brett Mosen announced on Thursday that the Blue Devils Academy has made a new hiring in the physical fitness department, “the Blue Devils are committed to improving this area, and assist our players in improving this vitally important component of their game.” He believes Ellis is the person for the job because he knows what it takes, “the game at the highest level is a million miles per hour. The fitness levels required are enormous. We believe bringing Khody in to oversee this program will have an impact on the players.”

The 4x League1 Ontario All-Star wanted this role so that he could create a platform that goes beyond the traditional fitness model for all of the OBD academy. “It is my belief that to achieve higher performance in sport you must focus on the total well-being of an athlete. It’s about taking your health and performance to the next level by focusing on movement, mindset, nutrition, and recovery as a whole.”

Khody Ellis is a Strength and Conditioning Coach and Fascial Stretch Therapist at Peaks Lifestyle away from the pitch, and will be bringing the lessons he’s learned professionally to the Blue Devils FC team he knows so well. “For me, it’s about helping all academy players develop a strong educational foundation in safe and effective movement, and mental performance. I can’t express enough how vital strength training is for the development of young athletes, and I am looking forward to being the person to bring this to the club that I love and have dedicated the last 5 years to.”
