Hi, I’m Dr. Conor,
I’m a mental performance expert, the author of the Amazon No. 1 best-selling book The Gym Upstairs, and the CEO of The Gym Upstairs Consultancy who works with young athletes who are tired of lacking self-belief and not having confidence in their performance.
My expertise will help you achieve maximum self-belief and confidence so you are guaranteed the best opportunity for a career in your professional sport without feeling pressured or stressed.
Throughout my career, I’ve worked with and researched the top professional athletes and coaches from the NFL, the NBA, the MLB, the PGA, Tour, Olympic Champions, the Soccer World Cup, the Champions League, Rugby World Cup Champions, World Record Holders, the English Premier League, the Indian Cricket League, World Boxing Champions, World Snooker Champions, World Swimming Champions, and World Gymnastic Champions.
From my Ph.D; doctoral, and post-doctoral studies in Psychology, Neuroscience, and Sociology I`ve become an expert in mental performance.
But before all of that, I was a young athlete too.
I was talented and played and captained teams much older than me. Having spent my youth perfecting my game I reached the top level in my sports before as a young man at the age of only 20 I had to stop playing due to an injury that no traditional medical doctor could figure out. From there I went to a specialist and was told I had a spinal injury that was inoperable in Europe, where I lived.
I was stressed and feeling under pressure as a sporting career is short and my body was not improving at all.
As Featured In:
My self-belief went and I was not confident that I`d play to a high level of performance or even ever again.
As I had spent all of my time preparing or playing sports and it was all I wanted to do in life, I felt as if my whole life was over even though I knew deep down I had to ability to do great things.
From that moment on I vowed to learn everything I could about the human mind, brain, and body and to help myself and other young athletes to overcome their issues with self-belief and lack of confidence so that they could perform at the highest level with feelings of pressure or being
After discovering all I could to help myself, over the course of the next few years, I worked with professional sports people and coaches to maximize their performance levels and discovered the fastest way to help young athletes reach the highest potential within their sport.
Then I wrote The Gym Upstairs and it became a No.1 best seller on Amazon.
