"I first bumped into Rich about 4 years ago whilst he was still an Elite road cyclist with Herbalife, competing on the national road scene. What became immediately apparent was that he was not simply a ‘bash out the miles and the results will come’ kind of guy and it came as no surprise that he was involved in the academic side of Sports Science.
Since then I have ridden many thousands of miles with Rich, bouncing questions off him and discussing thoughts on training and training plans, eeking out all possible insight I can into ‘training clever’. His knowledge and passion for improvement, combined with his easy going and positive approach has seen me progress from an enthusiastic newbie in road cycling, to this year becoming British Age Group Triathlon Champion.
Not just another ex-elite level rider using only personal experience to help people, Rich is able to combine his experience with a deep understanding of the body’s physiological response to exercise using both currently accepted thoughts on training and, through his work at the University of Chester, also the very latest thinking from a spectrum of endurance focused sport scientists. Combine this with his access to research level equipment beyond the reach of most coaches, he offers a unique blend of real world experience, academic thinking and professional testing to offer an accurate, tailored and genuinely individualised coaching regime to his athletes."
