Welcome to Peak XV Tri Coaching Website

“Once there was a mountain called Peak 15. Nothing was known about it. But in 1852 the surveyors found it was the highest in the world and they named it Everest.”

Whether you have just entered your first Ironman or you are an experienced age group athlete looking to represent Great Britain in the future, I can help you achieve your goals. Combining over 27 years of competitive triathlon experience with coaching qualifications from Lancaster University, Triathlon England and City College, Manchester you can be assured that the coaching I provide is pragmatic, realistic and based on the latest sports science. Further details of both my competitive and coaching experience can be found here.

Over the past 17 years I have successfully coached over 60 athletes of differing abilities and experience developing my own training philosophy along the way. In 2016 I supported over 16 athletes to fulfil their Ironman dreams. Profiles of some of the athletes I currently coach can be found here.
