Alex Wolf has spent over 15 years supporting athletes, staff and teams to perform in moments that matter; preparing for and delivering at the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Alex is a co-founder of Wayfaring who take the experiences and principles of working in high performance sport to facilitate leadership, team and people development. Alex continues to consult with premier sports organisations across the world to create and deliver their strategic objectives.
Alex has previously worked for the English Institute of Sport where he spent the early part of his career as a strength and conditioning coach, most notably supporting UK Athletics up to the Beijing Olympic Games and British Rowing during the London Olympic Games. Post the London Games, Alex moved into leadership positions, spending five years as the Head of Strength and Conditioning. Most recently, Alex was the Head of Learning, responsible for the individual and organisational learning and development needs including the well-being and self-care of staff. Prior to Alex’s involvement in high performance sport, Alex led an exercise referral scheme within a London Borough supporting individuals regaining freedom and improvements in health and well-being through exercise. This included supporting several individuals who were stroke survivors.
Alex’s interest in working with A Stroke of Luck stems from personal experiences of Alex’s father who suffered from a stroke. Alex brings a diverse range of expertise including health and exercise modalities for special populations, an evidence based approach to performance and an understanding of motivation and behaviour to help individuals make lasting and meaningful changes.
