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".

Robin's philosophy is straight - Whether you are an Olympic athlete or starting out for the very first time, EVERYONE deserves the opportunity to improve their performance.

"Although coaching involves many components which helps lead to a specific  improvement in performance, to me it is still very important to make this process fun, challenging, stimulating, rewarding, satisfying and most importantly enjoyable, leaving individuals loving the process and wanting more. An individual’s motivation can move mountains and to be able to contribute and make a difference is a privilege".

I’ve just gone for a swim after another 1-2-1 swim coaching session from Karl and I’m delighted to report that I feel like a completely different swimmer! My swim felt effortless and smooth; the opposite from how it used to feel before I received Karl’s coaching. Karl clearly explained to me the areas in which I needed to improve and gave me exercises and drills to work on. By putting into practice what Karl told me I am seeing a huge difference in my swimming. I recommend Karl to anyone looking to improve their swimming, particularly for triathlons. Will be booking another session to have in a few weeks time.

I have been on many training camps run by Steve Lloyd and have loved each any every one. All have provided a great environment for training hard and having fun. Swimming, running, conditioning and stretching routines are all really good, but it is the biking which is just the best and I am always amazed how quickly my bike fitness and handling improves over a week. Equally importantly, I have a great holiday with good company. I don’t need to look anywhere else for a training camp.

I had a great time living full-time triathlete life for a week! The camp was very technique focussed, varied, and adapted to different levels. The hotel is in a great location, with safe storage for bikes and plenty of good food. Definitely a must for any triathlete looking to build technique and fitness before the season!

A great training camp, for me, is a blend of environment, coaching and company. This one works for me, and I am re-booking. There are choices out there, many also good, but when you get that mix just right, well, it works, so you go back. Big year next year and this will help greatly.

These training camps have enhanced my love for triathlon and provided me with amazing skills, training, friendships and experiences which I can walk away from the camps knowing I’ve had an amazing time and looking to when I can go again. Excellent coaching which aims to emphasise having fun while completing the training is perfect for these training camps. Some of my best memories from the sport are from these camps, I cannot recommend them enough.
