I'm a passionate Road, TT and Cyclocross rider and I love helping people improve.

I understand the demands of the 'time crunched athelete' and we don't all respond to training in the same way. No matter how busy your personal schedule is, there is always a way to make progress toward your targets and sometimes a little bit of creativity goes a long way!

I offer coaching on an individual basis or for employees embarking on their own health or charity challenge.

I'm a huge fan of training with kettlebells, they are fantastic ways of improving strength and power for all sports. Sometimes the old fashioned tools have the most powerful impact.

Above all, keep it simple and effective.
