I am Jo Clubb, an international Sports Science Consultant with extensive experience in elite professional team sports. As the founder of Global Performance Insights, I offer bespoke sports science consultancy services to help athletes and teams achieve peak performance through evidence-based methods and innovative sports science.

With over a decade in applied sports science, I've worked with top teams including the Buffalo Bills (NFL), Buffalo Sabres (NHL), and Premier League clubs Chelsea FC and Brighton and Hove Albion FC. My expertise includes monitoring training load, conducting physical profiling and testing, developing athlete management systems, and incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) in sport. 

I hold a Bachelor's in Sport and Exercise Science from Loughborough University and a Master's in High Performance Sport from Australian Catholic University. I contribute to the scientific community through peer-reviewed publications, textbook contributions, and frequent speaking engagements at international sports science conferences and events, as well as university lectures. Passionate about open science and education, I share sports science insights through my blog and YouTube channel.

My mission is to make sports science digestible.
