“To accomplish something extraordinary, one must have an extraordinary dream”

As much as triathlon is a very individual sport, I always wanted to create my own Team of coached athletes. For me it’s hugely important for my athletes to feel part of a group working towards similar dreams and goals. I want my athletes to have a sense of belonging where they will find inspiration, encouragement and friendship.

My primary coaching passion for the past 15 years has been on developing long course triathletes of all abilities. That includes first time Ironman athletes to those winning medals at World Championship level.

I coach my team of triathletes at our beautiful training facility here at David Lloyd, Acton (West London). Alongside this, I coach a small number of athletes online each year, I also write customised training plans. I am also a fully qualified Swim Smooth Certified coach and can offer high quality swim video analysis session for those athletes looking to develop their swim. Further details can be found in my “Coaching Services” page.

If you have any further queries or would like to discuss coaching options please feel free to contact me.

Right from the start it was clear that Julian’s way was very different from my “self-taught” chaos. I had to do more than just 40 lengths Read More…..

From the first time I met Julian, I knew he was the right coach for me. It started out with a one-to-one swim analysis….he was so thorough in finding out about me, not only as an athlete, but as a person too. I really didn’t want an  ‘off the shelf ’ coaching package with limited contact, where a generic spreadsheet  Read More….
