I have also written articles (when I have time) on fitness and training. Click on the link below to read an article I had published in FitPro magazine – a magazine for fitness instructors and personal trainers.

Article on Indoor versus Outdoor cycling Published June 2007

My career in engineering taught me to be analytical. In my job as a systems engineer, responsible for testing weapon and aeronautical systems, you could not rely on lucky guesses. I use this analytical thinking in my coaching. A good coach can spot discrepancies between what a rider thinks should be happening, compared to what is actually happening.

On the 2nd March 2007 I left BAE to concentrate full time on coaching and a career in the fitness industry. Since then I have coached riders from all cycling disciplines and all ages and all abilities. I’ve coached riders to countless PBs, race wins and national championships.

Over the last 10 years I’ve developed a reputation for professionalism that is second to none.

I’m a family man with 2 young children and my wife has a demanding job as a doctor. I’m now extremely limited in terms of my own training time to little more than 6 or 7 hours a week but despite this I’m still a force in 10 and 25 mile time trials and regularly place in the top 3 of open events.

My huge experience as a coach, a competitor and a grown man who has experienced many of life’s stresses and strains, puts me in an great position to not only understand what it takes to ride fast, but how hard it can be to integrate cycling with life. I believe in a holistic approach where you coach the rider and the person.
