Our Team

Based in Newcastle upon Tyne, we are a husband and wife team offering triathlon coaching, swim teaching and aquaphobia coaching.

We are both very active in sport, taking part in triathlons, run, bike, swim activities and events. Our holidays tend to centre around a big cycling trip or a big race somewhere. Our camper van comes in handy for these events and holidays.

The "Van". We have resisted giving it a name!

Ponteland Runners / Ponteland Triathlon is our local club and as part of that club we volunteer to support activities and events such as leading run sessions or organising the club’s annual coast to coast cycle weekend. David is also the club secretary and a committee member.

We both greatly value the positive impact sport has on our lives and wish to help others on their individual journey, with their individual goals.

We have two grown-up children and one very lovely spaniel.

Our united approach to coaching and teaching is one of being person centred, we seek to meet the person’s training needs which always retains priority over the financial aspect of the business. Find out more about our approach.
