"Tim is a marquee individual - he plans and implements genuinely first class athlete training. His encyclopaedic knowledge of all the elements of strength & conditioning together with cutting edge techniques along with clear, concise instruction developed me into supreme condition. Tim's attention to detail and diligence ensured no corner was cut - he worked his athletes very hard, was firm but fair in his approach. Having worked with many S&C heads in my career, I would recommend Tim wholeheartedly to any athlete or organisation"

“I was increasingly aware last season that as I get closer to riding at top level with a limited string of horses it is seriously physically demanding and I need to be pushing myself further in this area. Working and riding flat out every day was sadly not enough... Having had the mandatory injuries along the way and particularly in the last few years I felt I was starting to creak much more than I would like! The support from Harper Performance has been a breath of fresh air in the last few months, as well as challenging. I'm really grateful for all the help and feeling the benefits in my riding. Even better is my back now wants to get out of bed in the morning!

Tim coaches, supports and guides his athletes to be able to meet extremely high standards both in the gym, on the field and more generally as a person. I would highly recommend any developing athlete to seek out his services”
