JM Coaching

My coaching philosophy is devised from proven research and experience of what some of the worlds leading athletes and coaches have used and also from personal experience, knowing what has worked and what has impaired or halted my progression as an athlete. I am a current Great Britain International Athlete and have successfully coached a series of athletes using very similar approaches. My coaching influences come from previous personal coaches and my current lead coach and mentor Steve Vernon.
