Think differently about your sport

We think differently about how to perform outstandingly in sport.

We are not traditional in our approach and we will challenge the way you think about yourself in either or both of these environments.

Our courses are practical, relevant, engaging and give you methods and approaches that you can actually use to get the results you want.

So you're either a constant learner type of person or one who feels they have it all worked out. Our courses are for both.

For a very limited time, the Mental Toughness Tools for Sports Athletes course is available for just £40. Enter the discount code OFFER60 at check out to get this great price before it's gone.

What Our Members Have to Say:

“As a professional sportsman, I am always looking for ways to improve my performance. When I was younger I used to think the only way to improve was to hit more balls and get stronger and fitter. Working on those things did help me to a point but the thing that really changed everything for me was when I decided to start working on the mental side of the game. The improvement I saw when I started using and practising the techniques that are found in this course was so much more than just hitting balls and lifting weights. I have no doubt that the content and techniques in this course can be used by all the top players in all sports. I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking to find a way to get to the next level. Whether you are a young up and coming player looking to get a professional contract, you are already a professional player looking to get to the next level or even if you are a recreational player that just wanted to get better at your sport. This course and the activities and information in it will help you achieve that!
Steve has a great understanding of sport and the pressures and challenges that a sportsperson faces and this make the content and the way it is delivered and presented excellently. All the content is easy to follow and can be implemented straight away, meaning that from the minute you start the course you can begin improving your performance immediately.” ― Chris Dent - Gloucestershire CCC Captain and opening batsman
““Steve has been brilliant in helping me overcome frustrating periods as a cricketer and go on to perform really well under pressure. His knowledge and passion around high performance coaching and NLP is up there with the very best and it certainly feels like I have an edge over all my competitors.

Through working together both face to face and online I’ve seen significant improvements in my ability to develop skills quickly, stay calm under pressure and ultimately enjoy playing the game I love. Steve has become a great mentor for me and I can always rely on him to go above and beyond to help me in any way he can!”” ― Bhavi Devchand - Western Fury & Perth Scorchers cricketer
““Steve was absolutely fantastic to work with on my Mental Toughness, it was not something I had ever come across before but the premise of actually working on my mental toughness was an absolute no brainer. It gives you at first the ability to know what you do well and what you do not so well and then Steve gives you the skills to deal with these issues. It has changed the way I practice and changed the way I play my cricket completely. Having a chance to actually test out some of the methods whilst I was away in the winter and seeing the reward of coping under pressure was such a great feeling. Along with technical training, I can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t want to work with Steve to become a better performer in sport.”” ― Ryan Higgins - Gloucestershire CCC & Welsh Fire
