Olympic athlete to bolster training team Pro-Noctis off Cafferata Way, Newark
A former Olympian, European, and World Championship Medallist has joined a Newark-based firm.
Greg Whyte, who was awarded an OBE for his services to sport, sport science and charity work in 2014, has joined Pro-Noctis off Cafferata Way.
Well-known for his involvement in Sport and Comic Relief, Whyte has helped raise more than £50m for charity, successfully coaching, training and motivating a raft of celebrities to triumph in completing some of the toughest challenges known to man; including Davina McCall’s Beyond breaking point’ 506-mile ultra-triathlon, David Walliams Big Swim of the English Channel, and fellow Olympian James Cracknell’s unique triathlon to Africa.
Pro-Noctis managing director, Phil Kelly, said the 53 year old’s wealth of professional experience would support the company in its mission to positively influence as many people as possible.
He said: “This is just another statement of intent from our team and having Greg on-board will only strengthen our offering, our credibility and our reach.
“This now well and truly puts us at the top of the market in terms of offering human performance training and consultancy and will ensure we continue to only provide the very best service to the organisations that engage with us.”
“Greg or Prof as he is affectionately known, will take up the role of performance specialist and is responsible for ensuring our methodology and delivery is of the highest standard and in line with current scientific research.
“Greg is one of our leading consultants and will work with organisations, teams and individuals who are looking to improve their performance.”
Whyte said: “I am delighted to join the outstanding Pro-Noctis team.
“We have a shared vision focused on optimising the human performance of all team members to create success.
“Nothing great is ever achieved alone, and I am looking forward to working with Pro-Noctis in helping create winning teams.”
Kelly explained the covid-19 pandemic had had a significant impact on workplaces, and Whyte’s challenge had changed to different help organisations, in the same way as he has helped athletes to rise to the challenge.
“Greg’s substantial experience in optimising human performance, lifting ordinary people to extraordinary feats of endurance, is a skill set that sits well with Pro-Noctis,” said Kelly.
“Regardless of whether a client is an elite athlete or a corporate organisation, Greg Whyte shares a vision with Pro-Noctis of unbounded human performance.
“Greg is the pre-eminent authority on exercise physiology and sports and exercise performance in the UK, he is an advocate for human performance, a world-renowned sports scientist and a global thought leader in physical activity.”
