“We approached Ayo to deliver a workshop and assessment day for our athletes and their supporters. His brief was to improve their strategies and habits regarding optimum nutrition, sleep, recovery and event preparation. He engaged with a diverse audience containing senior internationals as well as juniors with their supporting parents, demonstrating professionalism, humour and understanding. Any reservations the athletes had about ‘being lectured to’ were dispelled with Ayo’s competent and confident approach.

Ayo used his experience to identify areas in need of improvement with our elite squad during the practical session and passed on hugely effective mobility drills which we have since incorporated into our developmental work. Even more encouragingly, some of the simple suggestions for day-to-day nutritional improvements have been adopted by our athletes with positive results. Ayo is an amazing and knowledgeable expert in his field, and we have already booked him for a follow-up prior to the upcoming European Championships.”
