Who we are

The Performance Room has been created on Planet K2. Our mission is to help the world think, prepare and perform like elite athletes.

We are the human performance experts who have helped Olympic medalists and leading businesses across the world to be the best in their arena.

  • We’ve worked with thousands of people in hundreds of organisations in 31 countries on 6 continents over the past 12 years.
  • We’ve supported multiple gold medal winning athletes and coaches at the last 5 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
  • The best in the world trust us. They work with us because we don’t just talk about the world of high performance – we live in it.

Performance is our passion and we wanted to create something where we share everything we know.

And now we’ve done just that… Welcome to The Performance Room. Because when you need to perform, you’ll want to be ready.
