The Philosophy 

My coaching philosophy has always been centred on developing a strong relationship with the athletes that I work with. I have always believed that when the coach/athlete connection is strong the coaching process will be mutually rewarding for both parties. This is crucial for future success and ongoing growth.


I am also believer in a much more rounded holistic approach to training. Coaching isn’t just about the training; it’s about taking the time to understand your athletes, so you can get the very best out of them. No stone should be left unturned because the mental, physical, social and emotional characteristics of each athlete have a huge impact on guiding the training process.


I believe my strength as a coach comes directly from the ability to understand and inspire the athletes I work with. It’s also about giving them the right training   prescription based on their personality and current level of ability. I’m very much a process driven coach, I also place huge emphasis of the development of the mind, this I believe is the foundation of continued physical development.
