Coaching, mentoring and advice

I am Darren, a qualified BTF Triathlon coach. That means I coach people for swimming (pool and open water), cycling and running. I also coach HiiT Sessions, Core Stability and Boxercise.

I have coached people to take part in their first triathlon, their first 10K and half marathons. I have coached a group of cyclists to improve their riding skills, a running club to improve their running by performing specific drills sets, swimmers to gain confidence and better technique for open water swimming and I am regularly used, due to my experience, as a sounding board for tips and advice answering all of those niggling questions.

Good training is also linked to good nutrition, so I can also advise on diet for anything from muscle growth to weight loss.

I can provide any forms of coaching from a single 1 to 1 coaching session, for a single discipline; swimming, cycling or running to a bespoke weekly training program including unlimited calls / emails answering any queries or questions you may have about that weeks sessions.

I specialise in helping beginners but I also regularly coach those looking to improve their PB’s or move from one discipline to another.

Other services

As well as coaching I also actively participate in Triathlons and endurance based events (my CV is below).

I design, support and ride lead bespoke cycle rides and cycling trips. This can be anything from bespoke local rides (based on time, distance, elevation etc) to 3 day cycling trips. 

I have been an active triathlete since 2008. My CV includes:

2 x Ironman distance

1 x Long Course Weekend


8 x 70.3 distance

3 x Olympic distance

15 x Sprint distance

4 x Duathlons

Plus a few marathons, several more half marathons, cycle sportives, some long swims and you get the idea.

In 2022 I am competing in IM 70.3 in Vichy, France in August and Long Course Weekend in Belgium in September.

I am a qualified Cytech bicycle mechanic.

I am based in Wallington, Surrey – just outside London.
