“How can I be better than I am now?”

My professional experience and unique approach to coaching will provide you with the key tools and resources necessary for runners to achieve their A, B and C goals.


I personally work with each runner to help them achieve their individual specific running goal. My approach to coaching is highly focused on a healthy and growth mindset, promoting positivitiy through each training session and a bespoke running programme to mirror daily/weekly demands. Good energy and positive vibes are key to achievement.


Coaching Philosophy


The Running G

My coaching is very much tailored around the specific needs of the runner, taking into consideration the working and home life of each runner.  All training programmes are based upon catering for the healthy body and healthy mind approach – linking my prior knowledge gained through educating fitness enthusiasts, staff members and other runners over the years alongside educating and assessing prospective Personal Trainers. 


Previous experience includes coaching young runners, club runners and those new to running who simply want more structure to their training.
