“I can’t stress enough how valuable Simon’s advice and guidance was”

I contacted Simon when I was considering signing up for my first Ironman. I have a
demanding job with frequent travel, and a young family, and so wasn’t even sure that I was capable of training for Ironman. I approached Simon as he specialises in providing flexible programs for time stretched athletes, to get his thoughts. From the very first meeting, I knew that I was in expert hands. Although I’d been doing shorter triathlons for 8 years already, I’d never had much of an idea of how to structure my training, and really wanted to take the guesswork out of the process. Over the course of the following 11 months, I can’t stress enough how valuable Simon’s advice and guidance was. He structured a great training program, taking into account the available time that I had and regularly making adjustments to accommodate changes to my schedule and availability due to work and family commitments, and as a result of illness and minor injuries. He was always on hand to patiently and expertly answer the myriad questions I had, and was a reassuring guide throughout my training process. Without his program and ongoing support, I doubt I would have made it to the start line, and I certainly would not have got to the Ironman finish line with a smile on my face, knowing that I’d achieved something that I genuinely wasn’t sure I’d be capable of when I signed up. I’m eternally grateful – thanks, Simon.
