If you’re looking for a coach who structures your training around your life, work, and family life, as well as keeping it relevant and specific to your personal goals, progress and athletic development then you’ve come to the right place. Reach out via my contact details below, or visit www.intherunningcoaching.com to find out more. I’m George, head coach and founder of ITR. Over the last 15years I’ve transformed myself from overweight couch potato, to a multiple marathon, ultra and Ironman athlete and now I help similar athletes to reach their goals too. I’m not an elite athlete. I have always balanced my training with a full-time job, active social life and a young family, so I can relate to recreational athletes who want to get the most out of their sport without compromising their personal commitments. At ITR, we have only one “rule”: Training must be fun. If it’s not, we’re doing something wrong! If you enjoy the training, you’ll do it, you’ll do it well, and you’ll keep on doing it! How it works: 1) 30min consultation to discuss your goals, training background, any injury/medical history, your availability to train and any key dates. 2) I write you a totally customised training plan in either 7 or 28 day blocks 3) We catch up either every week or 28days to review your progress, shape the next training block, goals or milestones, or anything you need to discuss 4) You share the journey with fellow ITR-coached athletes via WhatsApp and weekly ZOOM calls; celebrating results, sharing best-practice and advice Check out the two coaching options in “Services” or at www.intherunningcoaching.com

What do you love most about your job?

Seeing my clients experience the “light bulb” moment with their training. I love nothing more than when I get the call from a client telling me that “they get it” or that they’ve signed up for another race/event that’s even bigger than the last one.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I’d been doing sales and management roles for over 17yrs but the passion had fizzled out after a few restructures and redundancies, and I had ended up in a role that was neither challenging or fulfilling.

I had previously been involved in range of coaching or training roles and absolutely loved them, so decided to combine my coaching experience with my love for running and triathlon, and started with the occasional client during evening and weekends in 2020.

During the depths of the lockdown in 2021, I was unable to work my day job properly and so made the leap to make the run/Tri coaching a full-time gig - and I’m LOVING it!!

Why should our clients choose you?

I have 10+ years of competing in and completing a range of endurance events and challenges including and not limited to; 24hr cycle race, multiple marathons, ultra marathon and Ironman Triathlons, LEJOG + 3-Peaks, Mizen-to-Malin cycle.

Whilst never a PRO athlete, I have a wealth of knowledge and experience, in particular of how to balance a demanding training regimen with a full-time job, a young family and an active social life - something a pro or former pro athlete may not have had to deal with.

I’m personable, realistic and understand that life throws stuff at us from all angles. Don’t take my word for it, check out my reviews!

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

All training plans are delivered remotely. Depending on which coaching package you sign up for, training plans will be sent weekly/monthly either via TrainingPeaks or email.

All ITR TROOP/TRIBE/KICKSTARTER programs give you access to the ITR Accountability Group. This is a way of connecting all of our athletes together which helps accountability with training, as well as offering encouragement, support and a sense of being part of a mini-community. We have a group WhatsApp group and a weekly Zoom call.

Running technique reprogramming is done in person, as it would be meaningless to attempt these session remotely.

The best decision I ever made was to join Victory Fitness. I started training online with Ronan over 2 years ago. His attentiveness and compassion for his clients is amazing. He is so determined to help you reach your goals and his wisdom & knowledge of the fitness world is incredible. He takes pride in his clients and pushes you to the limit so you become aware of just how amazing you truly are. I can safely say that I wouldn't be the person I am today without him, both physically and mentally. He changed my whole perception of myself, the fitness world and the purpose exercise has on your life. One of the most important things he taught me was "Our biggest enemy is between our two ears. Conquer it and your invincible." With his help I've conquered that fear and I am now someone who sees the gym as my sacred place where I can 'kick ass'. Training is not just something I do, it's now a part of who I am. I will be forever grateful to Ronan for changing my life and helping me become the person I am today. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Ronan. You're the best! ❤

I would highly recommend Victory Fitness. Over the years I joined different fitness classes and tried going to the gym but I never enjoyed it. With classes I never felt fit enough to keep up with the routine and I gave up easily and with the gym I never knew what I was doing and I also felt self conscious in a gym environment. That’s when I started doing my research and found Victory Fitness. Semi private training is exactly what I needed, a personal plan that helped me meet all my goals at my own pace with trainers there to help me every step of the way. I have learned so much from Ronan and Darren they are both so helpful and nothing is ever a problem. The gym has the most friendly members and I now for the first time I look forward going to the gym and I feel so much fitter and healthier for it.
