Ethos Performance is the premier sports performance facility for fighters in Australia.


The team at Ethos house some of the best fighters in the world and continue to strive to elevate the standards amongst the combat sports strength and conditioning industry.


"At Ethos, we’ve created a unique environment that allows world-class athletes to train alongside any person wanting to better themselves. And so, our systems extend beyond the fighter to numerous sports and any individual choosing to better their performance."



Hi, my name is Meer and I am the director and head coach at Ethos Performance. Our facility houses the largest group of competitive fighters across the entire country, covering a variety of disciplines. We’ve successfully prepared for over 500 competitions/fights ranging from amateur to the best in the world. Our mission extends beyond the combat community, and we look forward to expanding our reach and sharing what we know with you. 


Recently, Ethos has partnered with the EAA to elevate the standards amongst the Strength & Conditioning community, which is why we are excited to announce that we will be hosting a full-day event in July this year.

 Our team will be running a very unique seminar that will involve both theory and practical components, as well as a very close insight into how we’ve structured our systems here at the facility. 


The event will cover topics such as performance testing and assessment, energy system training, strength and power training, rotational training and more. The event, however, will not be open to the public, and anyone interested in attending will have to sit an introductory exam. 


If you’re in the strength and conditioning space and are serious about upskilling yourself and learning from some of the best in the industry then register your interest via the link and we’ll be in touch.

    Approved Progressive Development Program (PDP) Course   



1. Profiling & Assessment

  • At the start of the day, we will select a case study participant from the group

  • They will go through a full performance testing battery

  • Each allocated group will receive a comprehensive report outlining the findings

Students will Learn: 

  • The importance of conducting an assessment/testing procedure

  • How to conduct force plate testing correctly

  • How to interpret data. 


2. Strength Training

Students will Learn:

  • What strength is along with key training variables and how to target them to achieve performance result

  • The key components of the Force-Velocity curve

  • How to use velocity-based training to affect performance

  •  How to organise an exercise library system and develop a sound progressions/regressions list

3. Weightlifting For The Athlete

Students will Learn:

  • Our approach to integrating weightlifting at Ethos

  • How to implement weightlifting derivatives to suit the athlete 

  • A system to teach the Olympic lifts

  • This will be primarily a practical topic

4. Speed Training

Students will Learn:

  • The theory on the differences between acceleration & max velocity

  • Key exercises/drills that we use to target these components

  • How to integrate the above to assist non-running based athletes

5. Energy Systems

Students will Learn:

  • The theory on the differences between the bodies main energy systems

  • How these energy systems work together during sport

  • How to conduct Maximal Aerobic Speed (MAS) testing

  • How to write a program to target each energy system using MAS results

Students will undergo testing (not all) as part of this module

6. Rotational Training

Students will Learn:

  • The theory behind our ‘Rotational Quadrant’ approach at Ethos

  • How to develop rotational power for different combat athletes

  • How to incorporate rotational training into athlete programs

There will be a practical on different rotational systems and how to coach them

7. Programming & Periodisation

Students will Learn:

  • How to organise a macrocycle plan for an athlete 

  • Key programming styles and how to write a program for an athlete

  • The differences between programming methods and how to choose the one that fits the athlete 

  • How to program based off performance testing results

At the end of the day each group will have an allocated time to present on the case study participant from the beginning of the day. Groups will be required to explain:

  • Their macrocycle plan for a 3-month period leading into competition

  • Rational for programming style and exercise selection

The objective is to see how groups can connect the information learnt into a real-life situation
