I have been in the fitness industry for over 20 years, as a fitness instructor, Personal Trainer & Sports Therapist. I competed in triathlon for 10 years & I was a complete beginner. I had to learn to swim front crawl, ride a real bike & run outdoors as I had spent many years training in a gym. I started with Sprint & Olympic & built right up to completing an Ironman distance race in Austria & then again the following year in Roth, Germany. Due to an ongoing degenerative hip injury I had to retire as could no longer run without pain. This was when I decided to get qualified as a BTA Level 2 Diploma Triathlon Coach so that I could share my passion for the sport, experience & motivate others to achieve their goals.
My sporting life did not end there though, I went on to complete an unsupported cycle from Lands End to John O Groats including climbing the 3 peaks on the way too (why not!). Then the following year I cycled the length of Ireland also unsupported & in the pouring rain (when does it not rain in Ireland!) I still now swim, road & mountain bike, wall climb, strength train & other fun activities like skate boarding & roller blading.
I have always had a passion for sport, right from a young age & this passion crosses into my coaching where I always go that extra mile to help others reach their goals.
So if you are thinking of a new challenge whether that is completing a triathlon, Ironman or qualifying for a World Championship, then I can help you achieve your goals.
