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.

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.

2 x Ironman distance
1 x Long Course Weekend

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