Arthur PONTET - Préparation physique

Strength and conditioning Birmingham


For your individual physical preparation in Birmingham, choose excellence by entrusting your sports goals to Roro! A former French rugby player, it was during his career that he launched his coaching business in 2013. It was in a completely different sport that Roro built an unshakable reputation. He had his first experience as a high-level physical trainer in 2018 when he was in charge of a French international footballer during the World Cup. Following this collaboration, the footballer became a World Champion. Since then, he has continued to support international athletes, both beginners and seasoned, from all sports in Birmingham and across Europe.

Regardless of your level and your sport, each of his individual physical preparations begins with a series of specific and useful physical tests tailored to your activity. With these tests, you’ll know your starting point and track your progress to become physically better. This is achieved through customized sessions designed specifically for you. Roro is also the creator of a unique concept in the world of football !

A unique strength and conditioning concept in Birmingham !

An incredible method in Birmingham to assess one’s physical qualities and compete with high-level footballers! Bringing together a database of over 150 physical results from professional footballers (Premier League & Championship or equivalent), discover your athletic level, quality by quality. This concept takes the form of a FIFA card allowing you to track your progression and compare your current level. All tests to be performed are scientifically validated. A designer takes care of customizing your card according to your profile (your position, your club logo, your name & your photo) and your scores obtained. Scores range from 0 to 99. The closer you get to 99, the closer you are to the record among footballers ! You will then receive your personalized printed card! Following this work, Roro will perfectly know your strengths and weaknesses and will carry out a personalized physical preparation to help you become a better athlete, and in this case, a better footballer. Ready to measure yourself against the best footballers in Birmingham ?


  • You are a professional or amateur football player and you want to:
    • Identify what you need to reach the next level and aim for the very top.
    • Know your current level and then undergo physical preparation to quantify your progress.
    • Measure / compare yourself against very high-level footballers and international athletes from other sports.
  • You are a sports club and you want to:
    • Create team cohesion through the excitement generated by this tool.
    • Offer your players a fun and innovative working method composed of +15 scientifically validated tests.
    • Benefit from an overall visual of the strengths and weaknesses of each of your players and know the general fitness level of your group.

We evaluate only your physical qualities. With +15 scientifically validated tests, measure yourself against the performances of +150 professional footballers (from Internationals to Ligue 2). You will know your level in:

Strength - Endurance
Speed - Jumping
Acceleration - Flexibility
Power - Anthropometry

No. The "Roro Ultimate Team" concept only assesses your physical qualities. To be a high-level footballer, you need to have technical skills (dribbling, control, passing, shooting...), game intelligence (vision, positioning, marking, discipline...), and of course: physical qualities. While physical attributes play a crucial role, it's the combination of these qualities that will make you a better footballer.

Let's take some examples:

K. Benzema, E. Haaland, C. Ronaldo are among the best players in the world. They rely on significant physical qualities to make differences. These three players would score very well in this concept!
However, if we take the case of Messi and compare him to these three athletes: Messi wouldn't score well in this concept. We are sure he wouldn't exceed 45. But this doesn't prevent him from being one of the best players in the world! Indeed, Messi doesn't play in the same style as these three players. He stands out for his technical qualities that are well above average, compensating for his lack of physical attributes.
Regardless of your playing style, our mission as a physical trainer is to develop your physical qualities. And believe us: you will succeed!

Our coaching sessions are primarily focused 60% on injury prevention and 40% on physical development. Before thinking about performance, one must think about longevity! Keeping your physical integrity intact and minimizing the risk of injury is Roro's priority.

Only one obsession haunts Roro: result, result, RESULT!

In France, here is our slogan : pas de chichi... QUE DU RORO ! (no frills... ALL ABOUT RORO!) His sole goal is to help you reach a higher level through physical and mental preparation. It won't be easy, but Roro will perfectly balance the volume and intensity of your club sessions with those of your individual preparation sessions. Recognized in the world of football and rugby, he fully understands the demands of all sports and the level needed to help you progress. First and foremost, an assessment of all your physical qualities will be established through scientifically validated tests. Nothing will be left to chance thereafter. His method has proven itself, as many athletes from various sports he supports are now considered global benchmarks.

Roro's word: "Through scientifically recognized training methods and testings (physiological, neuromuscular...), I make my athletes faster (change of directions, pure speed, agility...), more enduring, more powerful, stronger. But I don't make my players more technical. If you think dribbling around cones will help you beat the best defenders in Ligue 1: You've come to the wrong place. Everything we do is quantified: In seconds, in watts, in kilograms, in meters. Maybe even in centimeters! Nothing is left to chance, and all our work will be measurable by numbers so you can see your progress.
If you are mature, ready to step out of your comfort zone while doing things intelligently to avoid injury and become better than yesterday through very detailed monitoring: You are welcome.
Here, "pas de chichi : QUE DU RORO !"  and I can assure you, it will pay off."

This concept is the result of 3 years of research. Our scales and tests are highly reliable. However, all of this remains applied to football. However, some professional athletes from other sports have participated and validated it! This is the case with Thibaut REGARD & Baptiste COUILLOUD (International Rugby Players) or Lucas HEUZE (International Crossfitter).

If you are an athlete from another sport, our logic remains the same: We select the best tests specific to your activity. (Example: An endurance test cannot be the same between a footballer and a basketball player) and we offer you the same quality of performance monitoring to help you become a better athlete. However, at the time of writing these few lines, we do not have a large database to assign a score to your performances and put it in the format of a FIFA card.

J'ai commencé un coaching avec Roro sur les conseils de mon ami qui l'avait vu passer en interview à la télévision. Je suis plus que ravie de cette expérience qui m'a permis de reprendre le goût de l'activité physique (on partait de loin !). Roro me propose à chaque fois des séances adaptées à mon niveau et mes besoins. Et les scéances ne se ressemblent pas donc on ne se lasse pas. Autres détails qui ont leur importance tout de même, sa ponctualité et sa bonne humeur. Déjà de bons résultats en 2 mois ==> perte de poids, meilleure routine de vie et mental. Hâte de voir la suite👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻

Bientôt 3 mois qu'il me coache et je suis très satisfait. Il s'est adapté à mon niveau et me propose des exercices sur mesure. J'ai repris plaisir à avoir une activité physique et ai perdu quelques kilos au passage

J'ai commencé le coaching avec Roro en aout 2019, 4 mois après ma grossesse ayant pour objectif une perte de poids. Très professionnel, il s'est assuré avant que nous commencions, si j'avais bien eu une rééducation du périnée. Il y a une pesée mensuelle afin de voir mon évolution (masse graisseuse, masse musculaire). et attention, si pas d'évolution gare aux Burpees ! Nous nous voyons à hauteur d'une séance par semaine et cela reste suffisant ainsi, j'ai pu perdre un peu moins d'une quinzaine de kilos en association avec un rééquilibrage alimentaire. Aucune séance ne se ressemble donc aucune lassitude! J'ai continué à voir Roro pendant ma deuxième grossesse jusqu'à 8 mois (avec accord médical), cela m'a permis de rester en conditions suffisante et de limiter la prise de poids! Nous nous sommes revus 1 an après ma deuxième grossesse toujours pour le même objectif de perte de poids. La reprise s'est fait en douceur et c'est top. Roro essaie d'être disponible un maximum pour avoir un créneau qui convient pour chacun de ses élèves et est toujours ponctuel.

J’ai eu la chance d’avoir recours aux coaching pour une durée de 4 mois durant lesquels j’ai pu reprendre goût au sport. J’ai contacté Roro pour une remise en forme et perte de poids. Ce qui à parfaitement a parfaitement été réalisé, avec des effets visibles. Les séances sont intelligemment construites, adaptées à notre niveau et m’ont dans mon cas permis de m’améliorer et atteindre mes objectifs. Roro a été un coach bienveillant, avec toujours de bons conseils et qui à été amplement supérieur à mes attentes. C’était un plaisir de me rendre à ses coachings. J’ai malheureusement dû mettre fin aux séances pour des raisons professionnelles, mais j’aurais apprécié continuer la pratique du sport avec lui. Je recommande vivement!

Voilà maintenant 3 mois que je pratique du sport avec l'aide du Coach Roro et j'en suis complètement satisfait. Roro est un coach très humain; qui sait ce qu'il fait; qui est très pro et qui a une belle philosophie. Il comprend nos besoins et fait tout pour y parvenir mais en faisant attention à notre corps. Franchement; j'avais eu du mal à me lancer avec un coach mais en même temps j'en avais aussi besoin et pour le coup je ne regrette pas avoir demandé les services de Roro qui s'est montré très spontané; dispo et à l'écoute. C'est avec une bonne surprise que je finis l'année 2022 et avec une réel envie de travailler avec Roro cette année 2023.

Après plusieurs mois passés en compagnie de Roro, l'aventure s'achève. Néanmoins, je tenais à témoigner pour valoriser ses compétences et sa gentillesse. Roro est une personne très humaine qui sait être à l'écoute de ses aspirants sportifs. Il a à cœur de mettre en œuvre tout son savoir et ses compétences au service de la satisfaction de ses clients. Grâce à lui, j'ai pu reprendre confiance en ma capacité à faire du sport et surtout retrouver le goût de l'effort. Les séances sont adaptées en fonction de nos objectifs, et sont toujours différentes, ce qui témoigne de sa volonté de nous apporter un accompagnement sportif complet et de qualité, adapté et réajusté en fonction de notre niveau. Si comme moi, vous n'avez jamais auparavant passé le cap de solliciter les services d'un coach sportif, n'hésitez pas, Roro est la personne qu'il vous faut. Alors bonne chance à vous tous et vive le sport ! Nesrine.
