Course co-founder & coach
Over the last five years or so, I have been researching the best way to stay healthy, based on my experience of coaching and studying the effect of simple exercises on the body. From this I realised there were three key elements to offsetting the effects of the good life – stamina, speed and strength – and set about turning that knowledge into a set of building blocks that anyone can use.
Like many, I did a little athletics at school before life got in the way. Running didn’t reappear until I was in my mid-30s when I joined a club having given up playing rugby, giving me a chance to take up sprinting again.
Wanting to understand how to perform at a higher level I took a variety of coaching courses leading to me teaching sprinting technique over the last 20 years. I have worked with youngsters from 11-16, but more recently with older teenagers as well as seniors, including European 60m record holder, Dwain Chambers.
Age has made me more aware of my own health, struggling to keep a belly under control from the onslaught of good food and drink! Bad habits develop little by little over a long period of time. What has become clear is that good habits can be developed in the same way, a little bit at a time.
