Helping others to achieve their goals by offering an honest holistic approach to developing athletes at every level or ability. I have studied coaching over the last 10 years and achieved a level 3 British Triathlon certification in 2006. I have attended numerous workshops and cpd opportunities to continue my undertsnading and process of developing athletes. From Biomechanics, Nutritional input, strength and conditioning to bike fitting, performance analysis using the latest power profiling techniques, video feedback and blood profiling. I have coached various types of athletes from complete novices to performance Juniors and had continued success in assissting those to achieve their goals, whether that be completing their first triathlon or qualifying for Kona and ETU podium. I will continue to be open minded about research a development techniues, theory and will pursue my Sports Therapist education programme to gain a better understanding of the physiology behind achieving peak performance at every level.
