I began sports as a swimmer at a young age, setting the scene and building habits of exercise and training that have continued to form a structure around which I lead my life. I started running to develop aerobic fitness for other sports and found it suited me perfectly. Running became part of my life and I enjoyed many trips to run and race abroad as well as at home.
In the late 90s I injured my ankle and started doing more cycling, initially to keep fit then racing. I took to the sport immediately, competing and learning about the complexities of cycle racing, training and racing with power meters.
Over time, I learned how to manage injuries, fatigue and how to get back on track after setbacks.
Training and being friends with some great athletes I learned what makes a great athlete great and how to develop these traits in others.
I was a member of Great Britain Cycling Team as Paralympic Handcycle coach for London 2012 where I learned more about elite sport and competition, working with the British Cycling staff including physiologists and psychologists.
Coaching professionally I looked around for ways to get better. Thinking laterally I decided to look to the world of performance coaching for business and took a course in NLP, hypnosis and motivational training. I have since done further training in sports psychology and hypnosis. This paid dividends as I combine these skills with my knowledge of physiology and training theory to provide holistic packages for success
