Graduating in Sports Conditioning, Rehabilitation and Massage led Gabe onto completing an MSc in Strength and Conditioning and to coaching young athletes across a range of sports such as tennis, cricket, football cycling, judo, pole vault and rugby. Prior to starting Evolving Performance Gabe led the 10 and 12 & under programmes in youth athlete development at Gosling Tennis Academy, alongside leading individual programmes for a range of athletes aged from 7 to 18, competing from regional to national level, including girls from Queenswood School, the UK's No.1 school for girls' tennis.
