About VO2
 
I started out obsessed with cycling and inspired to cycle by seeing Chris Boardman win gold at the Barcelona Olympics. Form this experience I took up cycling and joined the local club Southborough and District wheelers. I time trialled for 5 years competing at National level for 5 years before moving in to road racing. I moved to Belgium and competed there for 3 years taking on Under 23 races such as the Tour of Flanders and Belgium Criterium races.

I decided to stop cycling and wanted a new challenge. I couldn't swim and wanted a reason to learn so I entered a sprint distance triathlon. This was only meant to be a one off event but I was hooked. I have competed at a high level in both Duathlon and Triathlon and at all distance.

I coach people because I enjoy seeing athletes learning and working hard. I have a wealth of knowledge and experience coaching people from a range of backgrounds and abilities. My coaching approach is to always keep it simple. This approach gets results and keeps the enjoyment in training and racing.
