Who we are
Where we came from
Headquartered in Cambridge, over the last 15 years we have developed as a business that supports the elite of the sporting, business and academic community. As recognised experts in our field, we use our wealth of practical experience to drive our cutting edge, evidence based approach to team performance, wellbeing, therapy / rehabilitation and mindfulness.
We pride ourselves on our ability to design highly bespoke services that work for the specific needs of our clients. The list speaks for itself: ARM, Diageo, Møller Centre, Taylor Vinters, Medimmune, Cambridge University boat and rugby union clubs, England Athletics, Rowing Ireland, Spire Healthcare and the Judge Business School.
We believe that the highest achievers in sport display key high-performance behaviours. They are organised, tenacious, energetic and conditioned to function at the highest level. These are many of the characteristics needed for success in fast moving, intellectually challenging businesses. Our multi-disciplinary wellbeing team have unique experience and expertise, which have helped us to develop and deliver the ultimate wellbeing system for today’s leading business performers.
Office Athletes aim to improve the wellbeing and the health status of the workforce through various activities to reduce the amount of stress / anxiety and repetitive strain injuries associated with sick leave, and create a happier, more productive and healthier workforce. Our wellbeing services deliver benefit for the company whilst delivering a service that the employees love and talk about.

It means they bring forward the latest thinking from academia and professional practice, and apply their combined knowledge to specific business situations to turn it into action. It also means they believe in encouraging and supporting people to create new products and businesses, pursuing goals for intellectual gain, and contributing to social enterprise.
