Our elite level 1-1 training membership
This is our elite level 1-1 online training service. Members will have personal contact with head coach Chris Tombs, whether it be via whatsapp, email or calls, Chris will be there to help the athlete every step of the way. This is designed for people who either want that extra level of support and accountability to ensure they hit their goals. We have had a lot of players who are wanting to improve their game come on board or clients wanting to make their local first team right through to prospective international players.
“Chris was one of the most influential coaches I’ve ever had. His professionalism, support, mentorship as well as his obvious first class training methods make him stand out from the rest.” Sam Warburton.
Sam and Chris were a team for 8 years while Sam was playing professionally at Cardiff Rugby. This time saw Sam move from a graduate academy player into the first team at the Cardiff Blues, achieve a 40m speed PB, every strength PB he has had, his first cap and so much more within his professional career.
Elite level programming is only available to professional sportsmen and with our VIP performance pathway, this is made available to you. We are giving you this rare opportunity because you want to commit to your athletic performance and we want to ensure you get there.
It’s true that within professional sport and amongst the most elite athletes, Chris is the coach you want. With experience in the industry spanning the last 20+ years, having Chris as your coach, personally checking in with you and keeping you on track is the accountability you need to be an athlete.
His robust philosophy for physical preparation has evolved and been refined over the years to help all athletes reach their potential and break barriers they didn't think were possible.
You can apply to work with Chris on our VIP programme below. Please note, due to the bespoke nature of these plans, there are limited spaces.
a look at what some of our members say
We pride ourselves on giving not only world class programming but a support system that is second to none and and unbelievable community to help support everyone on their journey.
Cannot recommend SW7 enough! The plans themselves speak for themselves with the results they share on social media alongside my own! I came back from a knee injury in rugby that put a serious mental block in the gym and of course playing. Since starting the programme my strength etc has increased significantly and I feel much more confident in terms of playing now. Not only that but the community itself is amazing! The guys on FB always help each other and Sam and Josh treat everyone as a friend rather than just a number on a business sheet!
Hands down the best program I’ve ever followed. The plan feels very personal and fits around rugby brilliantly. There’s a real sense of community and Josh and Sam engage brilliantly on the Facebook group. There’s always somebody there to answer any questions you have, whether it be another person doing the program or Josh or Sam themselves. Also great value for money!
The programme is easy to follow, well explained, and I’ve seen tangible results in the first 6 weeks.You don’t have to spend hours planning sessions or wondering whether you’re doing the right thing. This has allowed me to train with consistency, confident that I just needed to stick to the plan.The support from Sam and Josh via the Facebook group has been great. Whenever I’ve had any questions on something training or diet related, I’ve found the answer in the group. Every question is met with enthusiasm and a fast response. I’d highly recommend signing up if you want a structured plan to follow that will deliver results. I initially thought it was expensive on top of a gym membership, but it’s been well worth the price!
Sign up, sign up now! Quite simple. If you are a club rugby player or just someone looking to be a better version of yourself. Why are you reading this and not signed up yet?! The content, knowledge and SW7 community are top class. The value for money is quite simply ridiculous! Huge thanks to Josh, Sam and the whole SW7 team/community!
You won’t be disappointed with SW7. Great programmes, really well thought out and written with everything laid out in an easy to follow app, great service and interaction with all the Josh, Sam and all the SW7 team who are always on hand to answer questions and offer advice. Brilliant FB community as well with the added bonus of numerous member discounts!
Can’t recommend SW7 enough. You don’t have to be playing rugby or sport to join as the programming is good for all. From people who want to get that ultimate beach bod to aspiring Lions!! Josh, Sam and recently Chris have a wealth of knowledge and are always on hand to help with any issues from programming through to nutrition. The Facebook group is a bonus, always willing to help and no question is stupid!!
Easily the best fitness/training programme I've used. Always lacked consistency in the past but I've now trained 4 times a week for 7 months. App works seamlessly and provides full history so achievements are trackable and can see progression. Full pro level support provided for all aspects whether that is anything relating to programme, form, nutrition or adaptations due to injury etc. Wouldn't use any other.
