Introducing, the one and only, Greg Dea.

Most of you know Greg as The Phys. But what you may not know, is that The Phys is also an internationally accomplished coach. He has over 20 years experience in elite sports in both the Coaching and Sports Physiotherapy setting. Giving him an unprecedented (word of 2020) understanding of human movement, rehabilitation and athletic development.

Here’s a bit of self-praise (which we love) from the man himself

I have extensive experience in multiple training centre environments and field settings in multiple sports and have delivered instruction to athletes, and coaches on technical and tactical principles both domestically and internationally. Many of these roles have been in some of the harshest environments where the challenges of deadlines, pressure, language, culture, and scarcity of resources brought out exceptional results to achieve a World Cup and Olympic Gold.

From tomorrow, Greg will be joining our Coaching ranks.

He will be in charge of Monday & Thursday Morning Coaching shifts, which means our VAD & VGT Athletes will all have access to one of the best, most accomplished Coaches on the pen link/ in the world.

I can’t underestimate how much of an opportunity this is to learn from and be coached by one of the very best. If you’re currently a member of Virtus Group Training or Virtus Athletic Development, you’re in for a real treat.

If you’re not a current member of Virtus but you’re interested in being coached by Coach Greg and the rest of our incredible coaching staff, hit reply to this email and we will help you get where you want to be.


The Phys will of course continue to offer his world-class Sports Physiotherapy outside his coaching shifts. If you need a Diagnosis, Treatment or some Phys quality TLC you can contact him via his mobile 0400 335 891.

Obviously, there will be no manual therapy provided during Greg’s Coaching Sessions however he will be able to give you exercise-based treatment and advice until the cows come home.

What a time to be alive
