Welcome to Athlete For Life. My name is Jodie Allely and I am currently the Tumbling Lead at North Harbour Gymnastics. I have been involved in gymnastics for 20+ years as an athlete, coach, and judge. I have  a BSc in Exercise Science and am currently completing a PGDip in Clinical Exercise Physiology. 

During my time as a competitive athlete, I experienced undiagnosed chronic pain which took a major toll on my mental health and my performance. After leaving the sport, at 20 years old, I was diagnosed with Deep Infiltrating Endometriosis, fibromyalgia, and a frozen pelvis. After years of medical treatment & lifestyle changes I am now back competing, coaching, and judging. 

I founded Athlete for Life to help coaches & athletes train the mental side of sport, not just the physical. We aim to provide resources on various concepts like performing under pressure, avoiding long-term health problems, and growth mindset.
