Tenax Performance has come to fruition based on the Latin meaning of Tenax of ‘Steadfast’ and ‘Tenacious’. The Tenax Performance team see’s the value in any person who displays tenacious and steadfast traits and searches for ways to instill them in people who currently don't. Connor also believes that with a growth mindset we can all develop and display these traits in our everyday lives but especially with regards to physical performance and health and wellness. Tenax Performance provides individuality for everyone because, simply, everyone is different. From the dedicated professional athlete, to the young up and coming athlete, to the mum who wants to get her beach body back for that summer holiday, to the dad who wants to get his body firing again so he can keep up with his kids on the ski slopes Tenax Performance has the bespoke package for you. We work from a clean sheet with no ready made formulas or preconceptions to help individuals to achieve their physique and sports performance goals.

Connor has worked in a variety of professional sporting organisations in his career to date including professional rugby with London Irish RFC, London Wasps and England Womens Rugby, and professional cricket with Essex County Cricket and Sussex Cricket. Connor moved from Essex to Sussex Cricket, wherein he currently is the Lead Strength and Conditioning Coach, at the end of 2016 following a successful 3 year spell with Essex Cricket culminating in the Division 2 Championship. Connor has also been fortunate to have spent time learning from people such as Frans Bosch, Duncan French, Stuart Yule, Ben Rosenblatt, and many more industry top thinkers. Alongside this Connor also has extensive personal training experience with Tenax Performance providing individuals with gym based training or accommodating for the busy individual who prefers to train in their home. Tenax Performance also caters for a much wider audience with remote online based programming through the Strength Portal iPhone and Android App (Video).
Connor still plays rugby and can empathise with all his clients who are stuck for time. Time is the biggest factor for all of us but a tenacious and steadfast approach to all facets of life is something that Connor instills in all individuals who look to Tenax Performance for direction and support. These traits need not only be directed at our physique and sports performance goals as this would cause the rest of our day to day living to suffer. An all-encompassing approach to lifestyle and wellbeing underpins the personal nature of Tenax Performance.
