“Whatever your sport, we can take you to the next level”

Founded in 2010 by Wayne Richardson and Emma Hughes, Richardson Sport was envisioned as a leading academy for independent football fitness, athletic coaching and mentoring.

Fast-forward 10 years and we have grown beyond that to become a specialist Health, Fitness and Wellbeing sports company, that provides a wide range of bespoke services to elite and aspiring athletes, clubs, community groups and schools.

Based at the GB Taekwondo National Performance Centre in Manchester, we have assembled a highly-skilled and vastly experienced team of nutritionists, sports psychologists, fitness coaches, physiotherapists and sports mentors. It is our primary aim to deliver bespoke support packages to help athletes of all ages and ability, professional and amateur, across a range of sports, to fulfil their potential.

Our team of fitness and health specialists will act as each client’s own personal backroom staff, designing, reviewing and improving bespoke programmes specific to individual needs.

Elite

Enhance your career in collaboration with a dedicated, one-to-one coach, to build and sustain a long-term training relationship both on and off the field.

Academy

We nurture natural talent as they work towards professional level, coaching them not only physically, but to meet the demands that academies place on young athletes.

Our company mission is to exceed expectations

Our methods are based on over 30 years’ experience of operating predominantly within the professional football environment, at clubs such as Manchester City, Leeds United, Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest.

Since its early days, our sports specialists have trained and developed individual athletes and teams, both professional and amateur, across a range of disciplines. These include athletics, boxing, basketball, swimming, football, golf, tennis and many more.

Whatever your sport, we can take you to the next level.

We offer an array of different coaching and classes packages, including Youth Programmes, that draw on Wayne’s wealth of experience working with athletes, and also youth services and local government
