ATHLETIC EXPERIENCE: Ex-Elite level MTB racer, with road and time-trial experience. Life-long athlete, training with power 5-6 days a week. Occasional runner, and functional strength training convert.
EDUCATION: 1st class degree in Sport and Exercise Science // Ph.D in Exercise Physiology. Particularly interested in the mechanisms of fatigue, and mathematical modelling of performance.
COACHING PHILOSOPHY: Despite an extensive scientific background, I am a strong believer that training should be simple and focused on the individual and performance goals. The basics need to be correct first: Training, Nutrition, Recovery, before looking for marginal gains. Finally, this is a human sport, and so understanding the athlete and fitting with their needs is paramount to success.

COACHING QUALIFICATIONS: British Cycling Level 2 // Training Peaks Level 1 coach (TPU complete for Level 2) // NSPCC child protection in sport // UK Anti-Doping Accredited Advisor // First aid.

All training plans include a training guide and full email support.
