Ripon , United Kingdom
Hi , Since i began my coaching journey i have been coaching a mix of juniors and adults , this has given me experience in coaching people at both ends of the scale from people who are absolute beginners to very capable athletes.
I have coached 1:1 with athletes covering distances between super sprint and full iron distance
I strongly believe that there is no such thing as a silly question especially for beginners and i am here to help with any queries without you having fear of embarrassment.
I started as a parent helper with the junior triathlon club that my daughters were members of and progressed from there to British triathlon level 1 coach to 2 then Level 2 diploma which enables me to coach on a 1:1 basis, i have also completed strength and conditioning and open water coaching training with British Triathlon.
I used to compete but the coaching role has become bigger and bigger and i get more enjoyment now from watching my athletes improve and achieve things they previously thought impossible.
My proudest moments so far are seeing juniors i have coached competing for our regional academy and doing great things in the sport.
The more i coach 1:1 the more it becomes apparent that to do the best job for that person getting to know them is key and asking the right questions is an important tool to discovering what makes that person tick to get the best outcome for them.
Its important to me that i am deemed to be open and approachable and i believe in keeping things simple and easy to understand.
my philosophy is to be the best i can so i can bring the best out of others
