I'm Muhammad Deen (MD) and I'm a sport & performance
I originally hail from the UK but I now operate internationally.
I support performers to enhance their performances ,
well-being, and personal development. I've been fortunate to
have gathered a lot of experience, supporting those who have
just entered sport, all the way up to the Olympic level - and even
in the corporate settings too.
HOW DID I GET STARTED?
I was involved in many sports since a young age but started
playing badminton at the age of 16. After initial success, I found
myself overwhelmed when I entered new settings and new levels.
It was my own mindset that held me back. Once I realised this,
that was all the motivation I needed to get me started, and since
then I have committed myself to understanding the functions of
the mind, the all-important role it plays in performance,
and how best it can be trained so that performers
can deliver excellence when it counts.
WHAT'S MY EXPERIENCE?
I've provided psychological support and expertise in a lot of
different sports, such as: athletics, triathlon, football, climbing,
cycling, weightlifting, ice skating, badminton, squash, wushu,
The lessons learnt in elite sport can be transferred easily to
corporate settings too, and high-performing corporate individuals
are indeed "corporate athletes". It's still a high-performance
setting and this is a growing & developing part of the work that I do.
