We know that everyone has their own motivations and approaches to training. Not everyone enjoys the process of training! Sport is a hobby apart from for the gifted few who can make a living out of it, so we need to enjoy it and need to smile! Every athlete is different and will respond to differing cues, so require alternative approaches to training. Time can be a real constraint to what you can get done in and around work or family lifestyles. We are determined to help push you toward your targets and goals in a focussed, efficient but enjoyable manner; challenging you physically and mentally.
We have a dedicated coaching team to offer varying services, as well as linking to some fantastic partners who can offer just that little bit more!
We work with all athletes - from novices and beginners to elites alike – and treat every individual as unique. After all, we all have our own demands, situations and lives to take care of outside of sport!
Offerings of video coaching for both swimming and running add a little extra - but aren't a necessity, but the main product we sell is a normal one to one swim lesson in a swimming pool (Riverside Leisure Club). My background with international swimming experience, and 16 years of coaching at all levels allows me to work with people of all abilities - and hopefully connect with people to help them understand and absorb information best.

Tri Coaching Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
The smile that people come out of sessions with, having enjoyed and feeling like they are moving through the water easier, faster or both! The lightbulb moment is a joy to watch!
What inspired you to start your own business?
I've always coached through my life - my coach had me teaching young swimmers from the age of 15 and it's something that I have always enjoyed. Running my own business allows me to do the things I enjoy.
Why should our clients choose you?
Clients should choose the person that best suits them. It may be cost affected, but the person that listens to you and understands what you need best is the person that is going to get the best from you.
The benefit of working with me is that I offer a time tested formula to help people improve their skills, while being flexible enough to make tweaks and changes to that approach where needed.
Tri Coaching Services
121 Swim Coaching - £40 for 45 minutes
These are sessions that can be done on a one-off basis or as a series of sessions; or as a regular check to see how techniques are improving and progressing. We run swim coaching in Bristol and around the country. Swimming efficiently is the first target; then we can look to make it faster! The main aim is to make sure everything is as high in the water as possible and minimising the resistance. There are many schools of thought, the ASA, Total Immersion, Swim Smooth – countless others. What we will look to do is help you find the way that is best for you. Sessions are £40 for 45 minutes. They are based completely around quality – so if things start to fall apart, for whatever reason we will stop. You still have my time, and we can work through things off the treadmill or out of the pool; but we won’t be encouraging bad habits!
121 Run Coaching - £40 for 45 minutes
These are sessions that can be done on a one-off basis or as a series of sessions; or as a regular check to see how techniques are improving and progressing. Running is something that is not normally taught. We just do it. However there are many things that will help make things just a little easier and/or faster. As with swimming there are many schools of thought – Chi Running, Pose Method, Barefoot Running, heel striking… As with the swimming above we will aim to help you with what works for your body and unique mechanics. Sessions are £40 for 45 minutes. They are based completely around quality – so if things start to fall apart, for whatever reason we will stop. You still have my time, and we can work through things off the treadmill or out of the pool; but we won’t be encouraging bad habits!
Video Swim Analysis - Prices start from £70
Video swim analysis isn’t a necessity for skill improvement. However it certainly is a very useful tool. One of the benefits with video swim analysis is that you can change your technique and see what you’re doing wrong in real time. It also allows you to see what you are ACTUALLY doing as opposed to what you THINK you are doing! These can be wildly different, even for experienced athletes! Video assessment allows us to target particular weaknesses in your technique; things that might be causing injury / niggles, fatigue, or just slowing you down. For swimming, our packages are as follows: Swimming – Sprint package £70 – (1 hour session, with Instant Video feedback). Swimming – Olympic package £90 – (1 hour session, with Instant Video feedback, DVD to take away). Swimming – Middle distance package £110 – (1 hour session, with Instant Video feedback, DVD to take away, Full analysis report and Swim Correction Drills). Swimming – Long distance package £130 – (as Middle distance package, with an additional 20 minute swim session for video analysis, at a later date). Video swim analysis sessions are done at the Triathlon Shop, our major partner. They have an endless pool which allows us to video swimmers essentially swimming on the spot.
Triathlon Coaching - £100/month
On-going coaching follows your season all the way through your target races from recovery, to preparation to race and back through again if that is something you are after. It is important to have an initial one-to-one consultation, as this will help determine your targets and aims, and what you want out of this relationship. The coaching process is a two way thing, and requires athlete input – and we want you to feel comfortable with the person who is going to write your programme! In an ideal world this would be in person, but is not necessary; in this digital age we can use skype or good old fashioned phone calls! You will then receive an individual training programme tailored to your ability, aims, strengths and weaknesses. This training plan will outline each individual cycle and the intentions within that; then obviously the daily sessions within each cycle. Focussed coaching means that we can look to suggest strength & conditioning elements as a holistic part of your whole schedule. This is obviously arranged around the time you have free around your lifestyle. Your programme is written on triblogs.com so that we can plan ahead for you – and that you can keep them abreast of how you are getting on. It is also a useful tool for yourself, to see how you progress! Communication is key to the operation, so both athlete and coach know where they stand. Most of this will be via regular e-mail, texts, phone calls and may include one-to-one consultations or training sessions (additional charges may apply). What are the benefits? Minimal thought – you know your training ahead of time, no need to plan something out. Motivational – you will have your own reasons; but a good structured plan will keep you fresh mentally Adaptability – if circumstances change (and in life they regularly do!) we can make quick alterations to your plan to help you get the best out of your time. Relationship – you know that you are getting to know someone who can get the best out of you and the time you have available.
