ABOUT Odyssey

Odyssey was set up by Charlie Ellison with the aim to provide various sport science services for a range of populations. Charlie has an extensive background that spans over 6000 hours in the gym during the last seven years. He has aided athletes at various experience levels, with wide-ranging goals and development, from the aspirational athlete to the seasoned professional.


Through extensive time working with physiotherapists, doctors, psychologists and head coaches, Charlie has accumulated  knowledge and skills across a range of disciplines. From youth athletic development, sports injury rehabilitation to high performance teams. This exposure has created a broad perspective of sport, health and wellbeing which are all connected - culminating in a  holistic understanding of sport science.


Charlie's educational credentials include a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science (completed 2014), an MSc in Strength and Conditioning (completed 2021), and an upcoming MSc in Sport and Exercise Psychology (starting September 2023). This latest pursuit reflects his commitment to better understand and serve individuals in their sporting development, whether aiming for elite performance or fostering health behaviours for longevity and vitality. Charlie is also an accredited coach with the UK Strength & Conditioning association.


Sport has been a vital part of Charlie's life, marking milestones like his 1st class cricket debut in 2011, playing premier league hockey for 15 years (currently with Reading Hockey Club), and representing MCC universities for cricket from 2011 to 2014.


In his professional life, Charlie wears many hats. He is the Deputy Director of Sport at Bradfield College, the Head of Strength and Conditioning at Reading Hockey Club, and the proud Director of Odyssey Sport Science.

At Odyssey Sport Science, it's not just about training; it's about understanding, nurturing, and growing together. Charlie invites everyone to embark on this transformative journey with him, where clients' goals become his mission, and their success is a shared win.
