Meet Coach Chris: Your Personal Guide to Success 🏅
With over 20 years of experience in coaching and teaching, and as a qualified sports scientist, swimming teacher and level 3 triathlon coach, I’ve helped athletes reach their full potential worldwide.
From being a lifeguard at 19 to racing in Ironman events, I’ve been where you are. In 2009, I weighed nearly 235 lb (107 kg) and fell in love with triathlon. Now, I’m here to help you, whether you’re a novice or a seasoned athlete.
Why Choose Coach Chris?
- Evidence-Based Coaching: Combining practical experiences with a master’s degree in exercise physiology, I’m always looking at ways to improve performance, which works in the real world.
- Maximising Training Time: Having been in a full-time job working shifts working as a retained firefighter and having a young family, I understand the importance of training with time constraints.
- Quick Improvements: I really thrive on finding and boosting areas for improvement using a simple approach to quick wins where possible to limit your time spent away from family, friends and work.
