My Pro Coach

I have 20 years experience of helping age group athletes surpass their goals, while still making sure they have quality time available for family, friends and career. As an amateur athlete and a parent I know how challenging this can be.

My training plans are intelligently designed around a typical work week. I set proven, time-efficient higher intensity workouts in mid-week, with longer aerobic workouts at the weekends.
