I have successfully coached athletes for the last seven years, coaching athletes at all distances to reach their goals and beyond. I am now following my passion for endurance sports, with a goal to be the best coach I can be. I have many years of experience within triathlon and have raced at all distances.
I believe that I have the knowledge, experience and commitment to make any determined athlete improve.
I currently coach with Racehub and Intelligent Triathlon.
I have been coached by Rob for over 6 years, during which time he has supported my growth from being a complete novice struggling with sprint distance races to a GB Age Group team member who thinks middle distance is ‘quite comfortable really’! Rob’s coaching style is very much tailored to the needs of the individual athlete, understanding their unique make-up in order to develop effective training habits whilst encouraging ‘thinking big’. And he delivers.
I can’t recommend Rob enough: I had ambitious goals and no real clear idea of how to achieve them. Rob worked really hard to make sure my goals were achievable, designed weekly training that was balanced and matched to my strengths and weaknesses, and gave feedback on individual sessions. We also spoke weekly about the training sessions and how it felt as a whole, reacting to how I was responding to the training and the interaction of training and life. As a result, I ran a 10km PB on a hilly course (36:09) and am look forward to my next Triathlon.
Rob coached me for just under two years, and with his help, I achieved all of my goals; I won the Army sprint Championships 2018 and came 1st in my age group, therefore qualifying for the ETU AG Championships 2018.
As a coach, Rob always considered my personal and professional circumstances and understood the need for flexibility being a key to success.
Rob was a very supportive coach and boosted my self confidence as an athlete, and made me believe in myself and my ability. He was very approachable and always there to talk to if needed; in particular before race's.
Without Rob's support, I wouldn't have achieved what I did in the short time we worked together. I would highly recommend his services to anyone considering a coach and wanting to improve their overall performance.
I've worked with Rob for a number of years who most recently coached me whilst time trialling for the Army Cycling Race Team (ACRT). Since the last time I worked with Rob back in 2015 it was clear he had expanded his knowledge and rider/coach interaction vastly. From regular feedback on Training Peaks to weekly Zoom calls to chat through progress, Rob was always on hand when I needed him. His sessions, both on and off the bike were both challenging and fun and when given feedback, Rob wasn't afraid to adapt or tweak things to keep me engaged. Weekly interaction via Zoom was something which helped make me feel more involved in the coaching experience as a rider and Rob listened to feedback from the weeks' racing and gave advice and encouragement moving forward. During my time working with Rob in 2021 I achieved both personal and collective team goals. Both my strength off the bike, and power on the bike improved and I was able to set some PBs over almost all courses I raced on, including a10 mile PB of 20:32. My season was culminated in being accepted into the National 10 mile time trial where I hit some power PB numbers and the ACRT won the Inter Services Time Trial as a team, which were both season goals for Rob and I, and wouldn't have been achieved without his support. I would highly recommend Rob's services to any level of time triallist or triathlete, he is a caring, knowledgeable and highly experienced coach.
