We are a strength and conditioning organisation that specialise in the comprehensive preparation of motorsport athletes for successful competition.

In the past there has been a popular belief that competitors in motorsports are just drivers or riders. However, here at P.A.P it is our contention that in order to be successful in modern motorsport you have to be a motorsport-athlete. A motorsport-athlete is an individual that doesn’t just drive or ride. They focus all of their energy on factors that will improve their performance, right down the smallest marginal gains. Evidence shows that being sufficiently fit offers motorsport-athletes a categorical performance gain.

At P.A.P we pride ourselves on using scientific evidence to guide our practice and ensure you achieve that performance gain. Some of this scientific evidence comes from our own and collaborative research. We are currently collaborating with field leading exercise physiologists and doctors to ensure we can provide you with a unique performance advantage over your competitors.

The Founder

Jon Malvern

Jon is an exercise physiologist, researcher and Strength & Conditioning coach that is based in the United Kingdom.

For as long as I can remember I have been surrounded by motorsport. At the age of 6 I was fortunate enough to start karting at a small track in Kent. From that moment on I have been directly involved in motorsport ranging from national club racing to international events.

My passion for the sport and my determination to improve the factual understanding of the demands placed upon racing drivers lead me to forming Pioneered Athlete Performance. My aim is to use Pioneered Athlete Performance as a platform to improve the standard of training and preparation for motorsport athletes and those involved with training motorsport athletes.

what our atheletes say about us

I feel better than ever. Since training with Jon my training, nutrition and health checks are structured and organised. I know what I’m doing and why I am doing it which helps keep me motivated! He is always monitoring me and uses me for experiments which is pretty cool. I have learned a lot and always feel confident in my physical condition when Jon is present at the track. Jon is a valuable part of my team.

Jon is one of the only people we have dealt with that makes an effort to improve driver training and preparation using factual research. The key thing for us is that Jon understands how to use this knowledge to produce a training and nutrition plan that is effective for each driver’s needs which are genuinely driver specific. The help we receive from Pioneered Athlete Performance and the high standard of training the driver partakes in leaves us confident that the driver is in peak physical condition for every race.
