Performance Endurance Training provides Online and Face-2-Face coaching delivered by myself.  I am an experienced and qualified UKA Level 3 Endurance Performance Coach with a proven track record of working with athletes of all abilities: from club runners to GB International athletes.  

I am a coach with a passion for assisting athletes to reach their potential by taking you from your current fitness level and work towards reaching those race goals. I have a wealth of qualifications and over 30 years of coaching experience (see website tabs for further details). Support for all my athletes is paramount to my coaching ethos and features heavily with the athletes that I work with.

I am delighted to now be coaching alongside Mike Cayton who has a group of online athletes and Oonagh Cocoran who is coaching our face-to-face groups. What I have in coaching qualifications and experience, Mike and Oonagh have in endurance performance at the highest National and GB standard, allowing us to provide a perfect balance for all of our athletes.
