Simon Olney   Phazon Triathlon

I am an IRONMAN and British Triathlon Federation certified coach specialising in helping athletes with unpredictable lifestyles maximise their time. My skillset ranges from teaching non swimmers to helping athletes successfully qualify for the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships.


I am to provide a truly bespoke service to all of my athletes, delivering training plans on a weekly basis that are truly unique to each individual, adjusting the plan as life gets in the way of training. I like to catch up with athletes on a regular basis to discuss progress and how beat to prepare for the event.

I believe in a very balanced coach/athlete relationship, catering for everybody's individual preferences, as opposed to using a blanket approach. After working in the film industry for 10 years I'm all too aware of the difficulty of balancing training with a demanding career so aim to be as flexible as possible, identifying weaknesses and using the huge amounts of data that the TrainingPeaks family of products provide to help my athletes train smart.

Alongside my business I also run courses for British Triathlon and the National Open Water Coaching Association, primarily helping those new to the sport gain confidence swimming in open water. I also enjoy running 1 to 1 and group coaching with my own clients as I believe this gives invaluable insights into the athlete's performance.
