You will likely have been offered comforting comments from friends and loved ones, “you can do anything”, but what?

We de-code the transition from Sport to business. We provide a suite of coaching and training to prepare you.

We co-design your journey with you. We will be with you every step of the way.

What Athletes Say What Businesses Say What Leaders Say

There are so many skills that you develop in sports, that are applicable to so many industries and actually those industries are calling out for it. Businesses are looking for a different skillset

Kelly Davies, UK Director of Ashoka Everyone a Changemaker and Cymru Football Foundation Chair

Not everybody has those skills and behaviors. High performance behaviours are high performance – They aren’t just high performance in sport behaviours

Craig Anthony – CEO British Wrestling

You have to have one eye on it (career transition). I have been super lucky in the sense of having the 15-year career, coming to an end with good health intact.

Whereas some guys who I played with only got to their early 20s before a horrible injury has caused a complete change, which was definitely not expected. It’s always something any athlete needs to keep an eye on throughout their career

Rob Miller – Newcastle, Sale, Wasps

The space Second Peak Performance are working in, it terms of the transition piece is both warranted and needed! We have seen time and time again people struggle with transition. Transition means something different for everybody and will look completely different to every individual

James Parkes – Saracens, Leeds, Gloucester. Founder of the MyDay App

Whilst I am still a professional Athlete, I am getting prepared for a smooth transition into a career in Sales. Second Peak Performance support me by being someone to discuss ideas with and offer practical support.

Robin Hislop – Saracens and Scotland

Working with Second Peak Performance allowed me to have important conversations around transition and what life can look like after sport. Transitioning into a different world is daunting, so it’s great to meet people who are passionate about offering support

Tom Cruse – Northampton Saints


We support Athletes transition, before, during or after their sporting career
