Peter has fifteen years of experience working in high performance sport in England, Qatar and Australia, where he has worked with many elite athletes, clubs and organisations including Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, the Australian Institute of Sport and McLaren F1 team.
Peter also has a PhD in Sleep and Recovery in Elite Athletes and has engaged in cutting edge research focused on developing practical interventions for athletes to improve their recovery. Peter has published 2 book chapters and 29 articles in international peer-reviewed sports science journals on Sleep and Recovery in Athletes.
Together with his wife Amanda, Peter opened The Recovery Room on the Sunshine Coast in 2019, which allowed them to share technology, equipment and education at levels usually reserved for elite athletes with the general public to help them achieve their life, health, fitness and sporting goals.
Peter and Amanda’s only frustration with the Recovery Room was that the number of people who could access the equipment and knowledge was limited to mainly those living on the Sunshine Coast. That is why they have gone online and launched the Recovery Project, to ensure that a high level of recovery equipment and knowledge is accessible to anyone.
Peter originally hails from the not-so-sunny UK and thinks that the move to Sunshine Coast with his family is the best he’s made to date. He’s looking forward to helping you find more balance in your life through the Recovery Project™.
I’m just a guy who fell in love with sport from a really young age. To be honest, it was all that I was good at. I wasn’t the smartest guy in the class but when it came to basketball, soccer, swimming or anything sporting related, I was unstoppable.
Until a major knee injury destroyed any and all chances I had of developing a sporting career. It was then that I realised that I had a choice to make.
Be bitter because I was injured or become better.
Well, I was bitter for a long time. But when I graduated from school, I realised that this injury gave me a specific perspective on athletes with not only injuries for being able to get around aches and pains.
From there, I’ve been on a lifelong quest to become a results driven coach who not only get’s results but can change the way people do things for the better. Open athletes’ minds to smarter ways of doing things and creating discussion that broadens their minds too.
