    "I wouldn't be where I am without the support my parents give me...They've fed me with belief and have spent the last 8 years driving me up and down the country to meets and training to help me turn my dreams into a reality! It's important they get support too so they know how important they are in our journeys and can continue to help us along the way, theathleteplace offers exactly that".

    "Athlete wellbeing is something that is often missed in the conversation about performance. theathleteplace fills that gap, somewhere for athletes to talk about their mental health and all the things big and small, serious and lighthearted that are so important, but so often omitted."

Hey! 👋  I’m Joe, former GBJ 400m hurdler and founder of The Athlete Place.

I have been involved in high-level athletics for 10+ years and am now using my experience, knowledge and passion for helping others to create a platform that supports athletes and parents in sport.

Despite being relatively successful on the track, I still struggled with sport-related mental health issues that ultimately forced me out of athletics. But without these, I would never have started The Athlete Place. I now share my experiences to help others on their sporting journeys... I’d love to help you on yours!
