Who Am I

I offer individual coaching programmes for people involved in running, cycling, duathlon and swimming.

As an older athlete and corporate professional, I wanted to provide a welcoming alternative for like minded people. As such I offer one-to-one and group coaching for adults looking to boost their fitness, improve their technique and enhance their enjoyment of their chosen Endurance Sport.

An Event Group Specialist (Endurance Events) England Athletics Coach, I coach all ability levels, from novices through to competitive “good for age” runners. Whilst running has become a focus area; I am also qualified to, and work with, cyclists and swimmers, as well as multi-sport athletes.

A regular competitor duathlon and cycle time trials, I offer practical and pragmatic advice based on my own experiences. Particularly, for older adults entering competitive sport of the first time.

Taking a holistic approach, I consider your sporting goals as well as your lifestyle, nutrition and time constraints.

Working alongside my team of athletes, I create practical and realistic training programmes which fit around their professional and personal commitments. I like to meet athletes on a basis that suits both parties, and I place no restrictions on contact for advice on training.
