I have been enthusiastic about the Triathlon since 2007, I am now a race official, athlete and have passed my Triathlon coaching diploma in 2012. Endorsed by the BTF since 2012, I have used my knowledge to train Adults and children from 5 to 99 years. With very good results from athletes, I hope to communicate my passion for these sports and to make you progress. Even if competition is not on your mind, triathlon can help you work all the muscles in your body and regain or improve your physical health.
