Hi, I am a Lecturer in Sports Coaching and Fitness at further and higher education level and have over twenty years experience as a Coach, Instructor, Development Officer and Lecturer. During this time I have had the pleasure of being able to work with a diverse range of individuals, groups, clubs and organisations, from primary schools and community groups to premiership football clubs, international athletes and national coaches. This has given me the opportunity to observe some of the finest athletes, coaches, teams, personal trainers, strength and conditioning specialists, teachers and sports/exercise facilitators in the country. I have learnt something from everyone that I have worked with and continue to learn every day from clients and other sports/fitness professionals enabling me to continually develop the best sports and fitness sessions I possibly can.
I am married to Heather who is a professional photographer and responsible for the photos on this site (the good ones, even the ones in Arizona where she lay down in the middle of the road to get the shot!), any dodgy ones I have taken on my phone or on one of those things with actual film in the back... remember those?). Heather is also mum to our two amazing children.
I am unfortunately one of those lycra wearing men (who decided that was a good look?) who can be found swimming in lakes, cycling up and down hills and running around the streets as if being chased (albeit by very slow people).
