Having worked with a wide range of people from the slums of India to the biggest sporting stages in the world, I am passionate about the people I work with and seeing them become the ultimate version of themselves. The proven methods and systems I use, help you to become more clear, confident and courageous in your field of play. Known for being unapologetically direct and deeply compassionate with my clients.

1

I’ll call it as it is

There is a time and a place for all feedback but without a direct and honest reflection we stagnate. My clients appreciate the contrast and honesty I provide them with.

2

Keeping it light

I enjoy not taking myself too seriously at times and don’t mind impersonating different accents with favorites being Indian and British. 

3

Holistic approach

I prefer a more holistic approach to life where I value the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects and recognize them as valid, important and impacting each other. 

4

Not perfect

I don’t claim to be perfect, nor promote the idea and believe mistakes are a vital part of the journey. Those looking for a perfect coach are likely ridge and won’t appreciate my style. 

5

Is a dreamer 

I believe in the beauty of our dreams and that they are worth working towards. I see enormous value in what our goals and dreams require of us to overcome. 

6

Self awareness

I agree with Billy Jean King when she stated that “self awareness is probably the most important thing in becoming a champion” which is the reason we developed Sports Characters™.

What others who have worked with John say 

Every stage of the journey brings inevitable new challenges, but none that can’t overcome with the right strategies, resources, support and mindset.

Some of John’s personal struggles..

As a young aspiring athlete in my early 20’s I found myself getting dizzy in the pool early one morning. Needing help with getting out of the pool and into the shower I could not even feel the water temperature which was the first sign something was wrong.

I had burnt out completely, the doctors called it “chronic fatigue” which was a type of syndrome that left you feeling weak and tired most of the day and they told me there was no cure.

I couldn’t believe it, I had put over 13 years of my life into the sport of tennis and it was ending right before my eyes when I finally felt so close to a long awaited breakthrough. 

The devastation I felt was like a wave engulfing me and as my health and fitness deteriorated with each passing day a depression overtook me that felt literally like there was a dark cloud over my head that had me pinned down. 

Spending months at a time mostly in bed, I struggled with the question of “who am I” now that I could no-longer play my beloved sport of tennis each day.

What was I going to do with my life? And would I ever recover from the struggle of chronic fatigue?

I felt like a failure and that everything was lost. It was my first ground zero and it was hard. 

Finally drawing on the wisdom my mother and a mentor called Mr Vincent taught me, I found a way to get back up from the loss of everything that mattered most to me.

As I began to recover, I started listening to the whisper within that said there must be a way to also recover from this so called incurable chronic fatigue.

Shortly after I met a holistic doctor who over the next year helped me recover completely. 

Through these struggles and others like them I learnt the value of how important the right mentor and guidance can be in so many areas of our lives and I am grateful to each of these people to supported me in finding a way through.

I learnt the power of our mindset and how our beliefs and self-talk play are major roll in whether we remain stuck in our current limitations  or experience a real breakthrough towards our goals and dreams.
