Our Work

A selection of work from our most esteemed clients and companies.

Max Verstappen

F1 World Champion (2021,22,23)

“With Jake’s guidance, I have a framework and understanding from which to make decisions about my physical shape, nutrition, sleep and recovery. Arriving in the car physically sharp and confident is important to me. A large part of that is down to Jake.”

Larry Ten Voorde

Porsche Supercup Champion (2020 & 2021)
Carrera Cup Germany Champion (2020 & 2021)

“I met Jake just before the very first covid lockdown of 2020 in Zandvoort. We discussed my ambition for the coming season. It was going to be my third season in the Supercup. I had come close to winning the title in 2019 but just missed out. I knew I needed a different approach. Jake helped me shift some perspectives I held onto; this enabled me to trust myself and let my driving do the talking. In addition to taking on a more professional approach to my physical preparation and lifestyle choices, Jakes coaching style challenged me to be happy to be in pressure situations. I’m super lucky to have Jake in my corner for the past two years and look forward to seeing how I can improve myself.”

Helena Smith

Former GB Kickboxing Champion

“Jake’s dedication and commitment to be the best coach he can be led him to participate in our martial arts classes. His first-hand understanding of MMA techniques and the physical demands helped consolidate his skill set as a strength and conditioning coach. This included fight prep and maintenance programmes for myself and other fighters in our club. He was a highly valued part of my coaching team; his programming helped develop my power and explosiveness in my striking and takedown work and build overall strength and resilience in the cage. Having a full-time career and competing as a professional athlete came with its time and energy restraints. Jake’s empathy and understanding of me as a person and an athlete set him apart from other coaches I have worked with. His ethos for balancing stress and managing physical and mental demands meant he knew when to push harder and back off. This, combined with his first-class knowledge of performance needs, made him an essential asset when it came to competition.”

Mark Foster

England 7’s, Gloucester Rugby, Exeter Chiefs and Jersey Reds

“Jake’s extensive knowledge and clear passion for the industry is infectious. He created a culture in training that transferred directly onto the pitch; players were maximising involvements, and game time directly correlated with the work and programming he had instigated. Not only did my on-pitch performance improve, but his time/game/on feet management throughout the season ensured that I was still firing on all cylinders until the last game of the campaign. Jake is a top-class practitioner and an inspirational character who I can count as a colleague and a friend. Even now, I still reach out when my training needs enhancing, and he constantly produces technical research-driven information and ideas for first-class implementation.”

Archie Wilkinson

CEO, Lifesaver Power LTD.

“Jake has helped me to develop as a dad, husband & CEO. He’s driven a better understanding of what makes me tick, what works and what to be aware of. He used body analysis trackers to dissect an issue and help analyse it from different perspectives. I look forward to him pushing me beyond my limits.”

Juan Manuel Correa

I have worked with countless professionals in this industry and, could immediately tell from our first session together that Jake is one of the best. I have never been fitter, nor have I enjoyed doing the work as much as I have this year. He knows how to keep me balanced both physically and mentally, on and off track. It’s always a pleasure to work with him.
