Tim Morrill, MS, PRI, RPR, CFSC
One of the premier coaches in the fields of speed & agility, strength & conditioning, health, fitness and movement, Tim Morrill is a true leader in ultimate and strength & conditioning.
After finishing his Masters in Exercise Science (UNI) and completing 3 years as a university strength coach, Tim founded Morrill Performance in 2011 as a platform in which to share his knowledge through online programming, video, and educational seminars. Tim and Morrill Performance are relentless in their pursuit of developing their athletes to the fullest of their potential. As much as Morrill Performance is known for their direct results, it is equally known for maintaining excellence, passion and integrity in all of its endeavors.
As a sport performance coach, Tim has a diverse resume having worked as a Division 3 strength coach at Salisbury University (2008), a Division 1 strength coach at the University of Northern Iowa (2009 – 2010), the Men’s Health # 1 Gym in America Mike Boyle Strength & Conditioning in Boston, MA (2011-2013) and at the National Strength & Conditioning Association (2010). Since his inception of MP Tim has focused the majority of his efforts on training ultimate frisbee players and has worked with many of the best athletes and teams in the game, most notably Boston Ironside (2012-2013), Boston Brute Squad (2012, 2018), Boracay Dragons (2015-2017) and his championship beach team Humiliswag (2015-2018).
As an educator, Tim has been a frequent contributor to USA Ultimate magazines and conferences. He has presented his curriculum on the big stage at national conferences for both the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) and USA Ultimate. Under his brand Morrill Performance, Tim has presented his curriculum in over 100 clinics in 20 countries. He has been involved in the performance development of the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) and training curriculum development at CUT Camps.
As an athlete and ultimate TEAM builder, this year Tim and his beach TEAM Humiliswag won their first USA Ultimate Beach National Championship.

Zi Ng – MPFPT Coach & Program Admin
Zi is a product of dedication to the process. His journey with MPFPT began in 2015 as a Distance Coaching client. Since then, he has educated himself extensively in the science of functional training for sports, executed and tested training theories, competed in Australian Ultimate Championships, became a Certified Functional Strength Coach (CFSC), and also jammed with Humiliswag Beach Ultimate team at the 2016 UA Open, Boracay Island, taking home Champion without any prior Beach Ultimate experience!
As a sports performance coach, he has assisted Tim Morrill at MP Clinics in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He also took the opportunity to assist the Malaysian Under-24 World Ultimate Championship campaign of 2018. Two athletes executed a full year of Distance Coaching directly with Zi, where he used MPFPT and the CFSC as a resource. The championship was conveniently hosted in Perth, Australia, where Zi is currently based and he was on the ground with the team throughout the tournament lending his expertise.
As an extra, you might find it interesting to know that during his youth, he competed in Recurve Field Archery, as seen in the Olympic games, and represented his school. Archery being a significant part of the Malaysian National Sports program, gave him the taste of parading through a stadium with hundreds of athletes across many sports, living in athlete quarters and paid allowances. While he did not win any medals, he was awarded sporting colours by his school.
David Conlon – MPFPT Coach
David Conlon, 38, has been playing ultimate for 15 years, and was a co-founder of the Los Angeles Aviators. Although David works in the Animated movie business, his real passion is Strength and Conditioning. The tipping point came when David was lucky enough to train with a coach who worked in the Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals Strength and Conditioning programs. This opened a whole new way to train for ultimate and from there David followed Morrill Performance programs for himself as well as bringing MP to the Aviators. David is a Certified Functional Strength Coach(CFSC) and pursuing certification in Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) as well as Functional Movement Systems (FMS). In his free time David is an avid indoor and outdoor climber, amateur photographer, and lives with his wife and twin boys in Los Angeles, CA.
