HAPPY CLIENTS

Mark has coached over 500 athletes of all levels since 2000 and coached 30 - 50 every week as the head coach coach to a large triathlon club in the UK from 1993 - 2013. Here are just a few of his success stories...

'I've worked with Mark since 2011 and counting, and over that time have transitioned from a triathlon newbie into an endurance junkie, and now proud parent of 2 girls which challenges my training time! Mark has been great at understanding my goals which have changed significantly over the years as I've increased race distances or started our family. I've had some amazing results too - a 9:42 Ironman debut (finishing top 3 overall), 2nd AG at UK 70.3 Wimbleball, GB AG Duathlon Team and many other podium results. We've got to know each other well and I fully trust Mark's knowledge of the sport plus his understanding of me as an individual.'

“After a bike crash with a car and a broken neck and compression fractures of my back, Mark built a program around this & my lifestyle to allow me to finish an Ironman 13 weeks after the accident.

2 years later I have now raced to a 9hr 56min Ironman PB and completed the World 70.3 Championships!”

“In my first year of coaching with Mark I have set numerous PB's and gone under 10hrs for the first time in an Ironman which is 1hr faster than my previous best time!”
