Career Transitions in Sport 


'By the age of 21, 91% of professional footballers have given up the game.'


'Risks of injury are far greater in an athletic career than most industrial occupations.'

One-to-One Personal Coaching for Professional Athletes

As many athletes know and understand, having someone to talk to about personal and emotional issues is essential for feeling emotionally strong and secure. Our coaches are fully aware of the struggles and challenges athletes face on a day-to-day basis and having someone who can relate to that can play a pivotal role in their development and well-being.

Our personal coaching service offers sports professionals the opportunity gain clarity with their goals and plan for a life after sport whilst helping them maintain successful athletic career.

We have a number of beneficial programs such as our LifeStep_24 program but we also understand that everyone is unique; therefore we are able to work with athletes on a one-to-one basis in order to define their goals and support them with their issues.


We are passionate about helping professional athletes fulfill their potential both in-and-outside of their sport.
