Andy McDonald   Grit and Glory Coaching

Training plans are easy to come by but coaching puts plansinto action.

You can expect a more meaningful Coach-Athlete relationship with me.

Beyond the bespoke training plans, performance testing and regular feedback that I provide, my services include the following:

  • Fatigue Management
  • Mental Strength and Wellness
  • Race Preparation & Strategy
  • Strength & Conditioning (olympic lifting and kettlebell programmes)
  • Practical Skills


I'm a passionate Road, TT and Cyclocross rider. I have a young family and a day job as a planning engineer, but run Grit and Glory Coaching as a labour of love. I love helping people improve.

I understand the demands of the 'time crunched athelete' and that we don't all respond to training in the same way. But, no matter how busy your personal schedule is, there is always a way to make progress toward your target goals.

I'm a huge fan of training with kettlebells, they are fantastic ways of improving power bike, running, swimming or riding. Sometimes good old fashioned tools have the most powerful impact.
