Andy McDonald   Grit and Glory Coaching

I believe in celebrating effort rather than results and keeping things simple to help the 'Everyday Athlete' achieve more.

Beyond training plans, performance testing and regular feedback, my services include:

  • Fatigue Management
  • Mental Strength & Wellness
  • Race Preparation & Strategy
  • Strength & Conditioning
  • Remote Kettlebell Coaching
  • Practical Skills Sessions
  • Personal & Team Coaching
  • Event Presentations


I'm a passionate Road, TT and Cyclocross rider.

I understand the demands of the 'time crunched athelete' and love helping people improve. No matter how busy your personal schedule is, there are lots of creative ways of making progress toward your goals. No more excuses!

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

Above all, we like to keep it simple and effective.
