Working with PlanetK2


“I first met Chris (Shambrook) from PlanetK2 when he was working as my psychologist on the GB Rowing team.

I’m really pleased to become an ambassador for PlanetK2, sharing my experience and expertise as an elite athlete into the world of high performance.

There’s so many things that I’ve used and developed, that can be applied into every day challenges we all face, to help people thrive in what they do and become the best they can be.”
