Peter Wilby   PeteWilbyTriathlOn

I am a triathlon and open water swimming coach based by the sea in Teignmouth, Devon. I specialise in coaching open water swim and swim technique remotely, and in person. I train triathletes with power, heart rate, and feel (RPE) for cycling. I use pace, time and distance as well as RPE for running.

I offer 121 and group coaching for:

  • Pool swimming
  • Open water swimming
  • Triathlon training

I also organise and provide:

  • Training weekends in Devon
  • Triathlon training plans


I have been involved with sport all my life, competing in triathlon for 10 years and coaching since 2010. My background is swimming, school cross country and mountain biking. I have raced at age group level - achieving a gold in the 2013 worlds. I have also raced at elite level in Ironman and long distance races.

My belief is that triathlon is a sport for everyone. As a coach I have taught adult non swimmers from scratch towards 10km river swims. I have supported top club swimmers training for crossing the channel. I have coached ages from 7 to 79 towards competing in triathlon. With Training Peaks I have provided plans for seasoned ironman athletes as well as complete first timer sprint triathletes.

In 2010, I began a Sports Science BSc at Exeter University. Around this time I also became a BTF level 1 triathlon coach and helped out at the city tri club and the university. In 2011, I became a level 2 coach and began leading sessions regularly, expanding to other tri clubs in the area. Since then I graduated from Exeter and started PeteWilbyTriathlOn. I became a level 2 open water swimming coach and am currently working towards BTF level 3 triathlon coach. I have also had the opportunity to take part in many work shops and coaching development modules.

Aside from coaching and racing in triathlon and open water swimming I am a beach lifeguard and run PeteWilbyTriathlOn. Here I organise events and training weekends as well as providing training plans.
