Before Richard’s success as a triathlete he competed in Windsurfing, trialling for the 1988 GB Olympic team. As a triathlete, Richard was part of the Great Britain team between 1988 and 1997. He was part of the Gold Medal European Championship team of 1992 and Gold Medal World’s team the year after.

Between 1991 and 1997, Richard was British Champion 5 times over the middle distance course. In 1995 he was highest placed British finisher in the World Ironman Championships, Hawaii.

Even though Richard’s main focus is TriLiving, he still competes in triathlon events, winning his age group category Ironman 70.3 UK and Lanzarote titles.

Coaching

Richard gained his B.Ed. (Hon) at the college of St. Mark and St. John in 1989 and has been a professional Triathlon coach since 1998, beginning his coaching career at the University of Bath. 

He held this post until 2001 when he joined the British Triathlon Association as Assistant National performance coach. This new position was based at the University of Bath. He worked in some capacity with all World Class Performance Athletes. Richard was accountable for the performance centre.

In 2004 he was a Team GB Triathlon coach at the Athens Olympic Games.

Since 2005, Richard has based himself and his family in the Charente Maritime region of France, starting TriLiving and building upon its services. TriLiving is built around Richard’s philosophy that anyone of any age and ability can improve as long as the athlete himself believes this.

During this period he has organised and run annual triathlon training camps, usually based at Club La Santa, Lanzarote.

Also available from TriLiving are 4 week triathlon training plans, tailored to the individual’s aims, ability and time restrictions.

12 week training plans are also available; these aim to give the triathlete sufficient understanding of their training needs that, at the end of the 12 weeks, they can continue planning their own training.

10 Celsius & 70km/h wind in Geneva - makes one want to go to some sunny, warm place... Escape to South Africa for some cycling & running with Annchen Clarke (Kona World Championships finisher) and Bram Peereboom(MTB champ) - these two make the most amazing training camps! Top-notch coaching, assured security (in SA!) and a lot of extra attention: sharing with us a bit of their South African dolce vita (wine, wine and more wine!) <3 Dankie Annchen & Bram

This was a positive experience for Kate. She returned to the car with a big smile on her face. She felt like she learned more than what was on the agenda for the clinic and enjoyed that facilitators were able to personalize the experience for her while she was there. I got an earful about the experience on the way home and to be honest I didn’t understand much of it and just nodded my head like I totally got it. But she was happy.

It was a great way for my swimmer to engage with a coach. Our team has been pretty distant during this experience due to furloughs and it was great for her to engage with a coach.

This clinic offers easily understandable techniques and fun drills to help you improve on your stroke. The instructors were all very helpful and understandable when teaching a drill or part of the stroke. The flip turn drills have probably helped me the most!

In-depth and individual instruction from championship swimmers! Your swimmer will gain confidence and experience while participating in a fun-filled curriculum. Do not wait…these clinics are worth twice the price!! During the butterfly instruction, the direction to more fully engage his core brought immediate results to his swimming. In the breaststroke instruction, the narrow kick drill was productive in improving his overall breaststroke performance. Keep up the great work. These kids really gain from interacting with competitive swimmers outside their normal routine.
