TriClub Owner & Head Coach
A Qualified BTF Level 2 Triathlon Coach & Level 3 Personal Trainer with 18 years in running, and 7 years in triathlon. I started as a beginner triathlete and progressed to a National Age Group Vest. It's been a great ride so far!
Like you though, I had to start somewhere...
After an injury whilst trying to hit a marathon PB I decided to venture into the unknown world of triathlon.
I was unable to swim front crawl for more than two lengths without getting out of breath,
Had never ridden a road bike or used clip-in pedals, and
Had panic attacks in Open Water that meant I predominantly did breast stroke for my first Open Water Triathlon, and often exited towards the back of the field.
Thankfully with perseverance, hard work, and a great coach I overcame my fears and qualified for the GB Age Group Team competing in the Triathlon Age Group World Championships in Mexico, 2016.
...here's the 'why'...
I can tell you, partly through sport, these things can be overcome. In 2018 I broke my leg in three places and dislocated my ankle. After 9 pins, a metal plate and a long, tough comeback I won my first race back in triathlon.
Moving on from this, my vision here and now is to provide Accountability, Community, and a Journey; of quality in-depth coaching/training support to help you achieve your personal swim, bike, run and triathlon goals.
Here to help you fulfil your dreams of either competing in a triathlon; ticking that Open Water Swim, Sportive, or Run off the bucket list; or progressing on to the age group team and achieving the 3 national letters on your chest.
I want you to know that I know what it's like to tackle anxiety and fear around ability. Taking on something new, trying to achieve the impossible, as well as overcoming major injuries and life problems.
Providing you with relevant, useful and tailored information to make those big and marginal gains in an affordable, easy to understand and follow format, via in-person/virtual chats, online coaching and the latest Apps.
I can help make the sport of triathlon accessible to you and will walk alongside to support your dream of achieving that Beginner Goal, PB or a National Age Group Vest.
