Ironman France 2007 - one of the most amazing races you could possibly imagine

About me


I have been a triathlete, triathlon coach, mentor and personal fitness trainer for well over 10 years. In that In that time I have coached and advised hundreds of athletes to triathlon success, covering all distances from super sprint to Ironman and at every level from beginner to elite.


I have a very strong passion for  half & full Ironman distance events  having achieved great success racing these distances all over the world. I also come from a very strong swimming background and have a huge passion for swim coaching, swim video analysis and swim squad development. In this capacity I have been working with British Gas as a swimming ambassador/coaching consultant in partnership with British Swimming for the past year. 


My athletes have achieved amazing success from someone completing their first triathlon to Great Britain representation and at European and World Championship level. I have also trained athletes to qualify for the World Ironman Championship in Hawaii.


In my many years as an athlete and coach I have been fortunate to train and work with some of the best triathletes and coaches in the world. It is through this experience that I have developed my own unique coaching style. I am hugely passionate about coaching at every level and strives to bring out the best in people I work with.
