North-West based Sports Coach
Somewhere there’s a part of my brain that tells me that I can achieve anything with a little hard work. That part of my brain has had me playing all manner of team sports, and more latterly pushing my personal boundaries of individual endurance.
As a youthful footballer I recognised the importance that regular game time had on my performance and confidence. I like to build on this approach with everything I do; planning, learning and executing to yield results. I am a passionate advocate of hard-work, professionalism and learning to improve.
From representing Great Britain, to a 10-hour Ironman, to riding for 24-hours continuously around the Scottish Highlands, brings with it plenty of experience (and sleep deprivation) that I want to share with you.
Reviewing, identifying and solution-finding is something I am doing day-in, day-out as a Chartered Surveyor. With over 10 years coaching experience to compliment the 9-5 job I have managed to build a wealth of experience of people and the personalities we work alongside to deliver.

Coaching is not about producing generic sessions plans, or fixating on one approach. Coaching is getting in the passenger seat of your car, understanding your engine size and handling ability, pulling out the road map and guiding you along the journey. Snags will be inevitable, wrong turns will be made but that’s why I will be in your passenger seat to find you the most appropriate route to your goals. My approach to coaching is to listen, listen again before I break down the challenge to build it back up again in the shape of you. This can be applied to:
Coaching packages are tailored to your requirements and can be adopted to support existing coaching.
Here are just a few snaps from some of my adventures including the ETU European Duathlon Championships in which I have represented Great Britain twice!
