In 2004 Hull City were still in the Third division of English Football but by 2007–08, Hull City FC had worked their way up the League and had achieved promotion to the top flight of English football for the first time in their history by winning the Championship play-off Final at Wembley Stadium.

Since then their highest league finish was in 2013–14, when they finished 16th in the table, a season in which they also reached the final of the FA Cup.


In 2014 the Club invested in their Cottingham Training Facility- a new gym building was erected and Perform Better were selected to equip the new facility.

Three squat racks with performance lifting platforms, adjustable benches, three ISO disc loading strength machines, a range of spinning bikes and Concept rowers were installed.

Since then the Club have added Keiser Functional Trainer and replaced two of the squat racks with performance power racks. When Dr Steve Barrett joined the club as Head of Sports Science the club invested in more Sport Science equipment in the gym and installed a new Perform Better Performance testing rack which includes ForceDecks force platforms, GymAware power testing system and cameras for analysing player’s techniques when they are lifting.
