Well-being – Fitness – Performance 

Are looking for a Performance Coach to help you develop physical and mental excellence in your sport, career or life? 

I have over 30 years of experience with athletes and executives and I am confident that I have the skills to help you achieve your ambition, ability, condition and circumstance.

I specialise in:

          • Well-being and physical and mental recovery
          • Corrective exercise and functional fitness that culminates in sport specific peak performance.
          • Mental & life skills for sports to empower you to execute technical skills/tactical decisions under pressure whilst being happy with your performance and chasing personal bests.

My coaching is organised around integrating/periodising lifestyle, mindset, nutrition and movement into your programme and progresses non-linearly across three phases as outlined below: 

  1. Well-being foundation … is a combination of physical, mental, emotional and social health factors that is linked to happiness and life satisfaction –  essentially how you feel about yourself and life.
    • In this phase we establish daily life habits for recovery (preferably with Heart rate variability guidance) improve vagal tone with neural exercises, cardio, posture & injury correction, sleep, stress prevention through building a container of safety and improving presence.
  2. Fitness Resilience“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, not the most intelligent that survives, it is th one that is most adaptable to change” Charles Darwin.
    • In this phase we are aiming to build physical and mental capacity and adaptability.
  3. Performance Excellence“happiness is using your full powers along the lines of excellence” JFK.
    • the aim here is empowering you to be autonomous in executing your best technique and mental tactics under pressure, consistently.

I like to measure and track various metrics in order to scientifically determine the sessions load and when to progress the exercise intensity (some days we are better to reduce intensity because you present with low energy). I combine the science with my intuition and your ability to perform with excellent technique.
