Simon was one of you youngest coaches in the UK to achieve the highest level of athletics coaching accreditation: Event Group Sprint & Hurdles, and Endurance. In addition to studying Sport and Exercise Science at University of Birmingham, Simon holds qualifications in British Cycling, British Weight Lifting and Lower Back Pain Management.

Working as a full time personal trainer, Simon's clients range across three categories: sports performance, lower back pain management and general fitness.

Outside work, Simon coached junior athletes pre-university between 2011 – 2021 achieving many national medals. Two of the six juniors (E. Cross & T. Randolph) are now successful senior athletes with one athlete regularly running for GB. These athletes competed between 400m-10,000m. Late 2018 saw Simon move into cycling after being invited to a Hill Climb race. Twelve months later the athlete (R. Ellison) had success over the short hill climb distances, including three top three finishes. The athlete also finished 21st at the last National Hill Climb Championships (up twenty places).

Simon also trains a Duathlete (S. Hall) who has just had the year of his life, achieving personal bests over all cycling TT events, and achieved the silver medal at the National (Yorkshire Duathlon) and British Championships (Oulton Park) 2021 in the V40 category. This was achieved through a meticulous periodised training programme incorporating strength and conditioning units.
