HP3 Coaching …
“Because we are mortal, every talent, skill, ability we possess, every thought and feeling we ever have, every beautiful sight we ever see, every material possession we own, will ultimately be lost. Unless we share it. Unless we give what we have to others to our spouse, to our child, to our friends and neighbours, to the strangers we encounter on our path- what we know and value will be irrevocably and utterly, gone..”
Having a good coach can be the difference between success and falling short, between personal achievement and disappointment. A coach can take the guess work out of training, be objective as to what you need, motivate you, make you accountable, set realistic goals and achievable targets, mentor and guide you to your best physical and mental shape to deliver your best performance.
Setting a training plan is just a small part of the picture, but working with a coach helps you understand why you are doing certain sessions and the purpose for each target and milestone along the way. The ability to discuss and reflect on training and racing can aid you arriving at the start line (and finish line) in the best possible shape.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ as there are as many coaching styles and training plans as there are races. Working closely together to understand how you operate by monitoring your training and performances I can create a plan that works specifically for you.
My approach to coaching is much more than simply setting training sessions for you to complete. I provide a comprehensive service including training plans, race planning, psychology, nutritional advice and motivation. Underpinning this is my background as an Elite Sports Physio, British Triathlon Coach, strength and conditioning coach, and Retül bike fitter (for the cyclists and triathletes amongst you). This coupled with my own experience as a multisport athlete returning to competition after serious trauma places me in a unique position to particularly help guide and coach athletes back to peak performance following injuries or layoffs. I have been racing for 20years from 1500m track to 50mile fell races, sprint triathlons through to Ironman, and everything in between.
I have coached athletes working towards their first 5k or their first marathon, through to elite runners and triathletes’ competing on the world stage. As a physio’ I work with Olympic and international runners and their coaches, sports scientists, strength and conditioning coaches, nutritionists, sports psychologists, etc. I have therefore experienced at close quarters the work required to perform at the highest levels. Previously I was the assistant coach for the North East Regional Academy and supported the development of numerous young athletes as they progressed through to GB squads and international competition.
