I think it’s fair to say that I’ve not followed a conventional route to arrive as a coach. I started my working life in food science, before moving into recruitment on a national and then international stage and then finally taking the leap to go full-time with my passion for running and coaching. My knowledge of biochemistry and NLP from my previous careers dovetails well with the skills needed of a modern coach. Having lived the lifestyle of a City runner I sympathise, and more importantly, know every trick in the book with regards to fitting a training regime around a busy schedule. The way I see it is that I’m here to help you get to the finish line in as fine a form as possible. Whether your goal is simply to shift a few pounds or take a sizeable bite out of your PB, the one thing you don’t need is a lecture. What I’ve found works best is encouragement from someone who knows the way.
I’ve coached at the Windmilers in Wimbledon, St Mary’s AC in Twickenham and the Borough of Merton’s U13, U15 and U17 Cross Country teams. I’ve also set up various fitness groups for Run England.
