Experienced multi-sport and running coach, Sophie has worked with aspiring first time half-marathoners, to triathletes racing Ironman, qualifying & racing at World Championship level.
She raced as a professional Ironman triathlete and as an elite at the ITU Long Course World and ETU European Championships, whist bringing up two small children & working. She understands ‘time crunched' athletes. She is a level 2 BTF & Ironman certified coach and is an STA Level 2 swim instructor.
My goal as a coach is to build the confidence of my athletes, so they too have the courage to challenge their limits. My approach relies on efficient and focused training sessions, with clear objectives & the opportunity to make training an enjoyable part of life.
I’m enormously proud of all my athletes & take huge satisfaction helping them achieve their goals. Our relationship often starts with them wanting to complete their first half marathon, ultra marathon, triathlon, or Ironman, but always leads to more.
I work with a group of dedicated athletes, some who are racing at World Championship level and others who are looking for fast PB's, or just want to test their limits.
With two young boys, I have first-hand understanding on the importance of balancing life with athletic ambition. Highlights of my own racing career over the last 10 years include:
