“For me, the most important thing is the Coach-Athlete Relationship…attentiveness, confidence, trust…working together towards a shared goal”

I’ve been coaching for around a decade, working with everyone from recreational through to senior international level across a variety of sports.  Alongside I work as an educator for British Weightlifting, and as a PhD Researcher and Assistant Lecturer at the University of Hull.

My coaching philosophy is evidence-based, utilising modern sports science alongside an emphasis on the importance of the coach-athlete relationship.  What that means for you is that you get a coach who uses data tracking and performance sport metrics, but who also pays detailed attention to you as an individual.

For more information, and to see if we’re a good match, consider getting in touch, and we can talk about your training history and performance goals.
