Summary

Richard is a qualified British Triathlon and British Cycling Coach as well as having a vast knowledge and expertise gained as an elite athlete (swimming and triathlon) and RAF Physical Training Instructor (whilst in the RAF he was part of the relay team who broke the world record for the Belgium to England Channel crossing and has completed numerous other channel swims).

His additional experiences as a lecturer in sports science and as a personal trainer (YMCA qualified) give him exceptional practical and theoretical knowledge. In addition to his coaching Richard still competes regularly in all disciplines and is the head Tri Coach for the local club “Triathlon Catalan”

Richard is also a certified raining Peaks coach. 

Coaching

Richard adopts a fairly hands-on, supportive coaching approach with all athletes staying here. He provides expert coaching to help all triathletes improve both technically and physically across all three disciplines (swim, bike and run), through improving technique, by helping you understand basic bio-mechanics and teaching you to use your senses to train. He will help increase your understanding of each discipline both individually and as the “whole” sport of triathlon.

Coaches Commitment to Our Athletes:

"I approach each client as an individual, so no matter what your triathlon goal is, your needs will be provided for. I design each weeks programme around the athletes we have in and provide you with the most experienced and professional coaching possible, during your time with us.

We couple this a relaxed “downtime” environment, and take care of everything else so that you can just enjoy your triathlon training".

Richard also offer an on-line coaching service delivering custom training plans;

"It is a fully interactive, bespoke, web based plan, designed for you. 4 weeks is the minimum duration, but there is no upper limit, so if you wish to train for an Olympic distance and have identified around 10 hours a week for 30 weeks this would be possible. Or if you have already raced several 1/2 ironmans and have 12 weeks to prepare for an Ironman the plan would be written for this. You do not need to fit the plan, the Triathlon Training Plan is expertly designed to fit you".

What a lovely week we have had with Abby and Chris in the Bordeaux region! This is a great holiday not just for the established runners, but also for those who are curious about running, or occasional runners, or wine lovers, or simply the supporting partners. These holidays tick all the boxes...

The attention to every detail, the excellent pastoral care for all kids, the ability to educate and entertain kids of ages 9 to late teens, the inspiration of meeting true sporting legends. These are the reasons why my kids could not wait to go! As a parent the fact I know my kids are in very safe hands and will be extremely well cared for whilst being tested physically and mentally are why I am happy to pay for them to go. It’s also great value for money when you consider 5 days and 5 nights of full board on top of the training and World superstar visits!

My son has been on two swim camps so far and thoroughly enjoyed them ... he's wanted to go back even before the camp has finished.
