Meet the coaches







” It isn’t easy planning a triathlon training programme for a mother of 4 children who works full time who has the very ambitious goal of getting on the GB age group team despite being a complete novice to the sport. This is the challenge Kat took on 3 years ago and she has expertly guided and supported me in my journey from being a complete triathlon beginner to a member of the GB age group team. She has been insightful and knowledgable and incredibly patient, especially at the beginning with my endless questions about turbos and swimming and transitions. She pushes me hard and sets some really hard sessions but it’s exactly what I need to get the best out of myself. She has the ability to push me enough to stretch me but doesn’t break me and I have got to the start lines of my races healthy and fully prepared. That’s the sign of an athlete that knows her athlete and I trust her 100% with my program. I know that without Kat I wouldn’t be the athlete I am today. There is still a long way to go (more work needed on transitions and open water swimming!!) but with Kat’s support I’m sure I’ll get there.”
