* Beginner to experienced athletes welcome
* All distances of triathlon coached but specialise in Ironman and Ironman 70.3 distance
I first became involved in triathlon in early 2012 and started coaching in 2018. I am a British Triathlon Level 2 coach, an Ironman University certified coach and coach at my local triathlon club where you can find me coaching both adults and juniors at our club sessions every week. I qualified and worked as a small animal veterinary surgeon for almost 20 years which gives me a great understanding of the physiology of training and the effects on the body. If you want to talk triathlon science then I'm the right person but I'm also happy to keep things simple. I'm a straight talking Yorkshireman who values honest and open communication between coach and athlete.
I believe that a successful coach is someone who can develop a working relationship with their athletes, getting to know you, your strengths and your weaknesses. Coaching is about teamwork and I want to be a part of your team so that you can get the best out of yourself.
I am experienced in coaching all levels of athlete from beginner to Kona qualifier and all distances of triathlon from sprint upwards but my strength is coaching the longer distance triathlons - Ironman and Ironman 70.3. Whether it is your first or 20th event, middle or long distance triathlon, I can guide you through the adventure.
