1-to-1 Coaching

Personalised 1-to-1 coaching hitchingstriathlon

I am passionate about working with athletes of all standards to help them achieve their swim-bike-run goals. Regardless of where you live, I am able to provide you with the coaching and support you need to help achieve your goals. I use evidence-based training science to provide bespoke individualised training programmes.

My specialisms are off-road triathlon and duathlon and sprint and Olympic distance triathlons. I have won multiple World, European and National age group titles across triathlon and duathlon (both road and off-road).

I also have a strong sport science background (BSc in sport science degree, a PhD in sport psychology and a decade working as a sport scientist with England Netball).

I coach a maximum of 4 athletes.

The package

  • The aim is to work collaboratively with you to set appropriate goals aligned with your profile. The package includes:
  • An initial needs analysis questionnaire and consultation
  • A provisional outline annual training plan based on the four bedrocks of training: overload, specificity, reversibility and individuality
  • Goal-setting
  • A weekly review of training (via Garmin, Strava or Training Peaks)
  • A weekly phone call (~30 minutes) to provide feedback on training and agree the next week’s training
  • Provision of individual session plans
  • Regular and frequent monitoring of appropriate markers
  • Unlimited email and text support - response within 24 hours.


Prices

  • £60 one-off set up fee
  • £120 per month payable in advance. (£105 per month if not setting swim training sessions).


The process

The first step is to get in touch via my Contact page.

Then, I have a comprehensive analysis for you to complete, followed by a meeting (ideally face-to-face if location enables). My goal is to learn what motivates you, your strengths and weaknesses and what is going on in the non-triathlon parts of your life. I gather a lot of information before we set up a plan. I don’t believe in “off the shelf plans.”

Thereafter, there is constant two-way monitoring, feedback and regular communication (weekly catch up, email, messaging), giving you the opportunity to provide on-going input to help deliver the programme that is specific to your enjoyment and development.

Come race day we are prepared…we’ve controlled the controllables.
