The foundations provided by sound breathing mechanics, efficient and effective use of oxygen and the ability to control the automatic responses to pressure, stress and fear can propel performance to completely new levels. His clients include Olympic Athletes, National and World Champions, as well as Senior Executives and Technology Entrepreneurs.


“Rich has been absolutely critical to my success. From understanding the body’s responses to stress, to developing a high performance mindset particularly under challenging conditions – he has been an invaluable asset who has helped me reach my potential..  Without him, I do not believe I would have won my second world title.  Couldn’t recommend working with Rich highly enough.”
