Chris started his coaching journey at Loughborough University where he competed alongside completing his sport and exercise science degree. Partaking in his initial coaching qualifications, he gained experience assisting with the regional triathlon academies, Loughborough Students triathlon club and taking a part time role at the local facility Race Hub.

Upon graduating, Chris worked the summer at Les Stables triathlon training camps where the initial partnership with Matt was made. This lay the foundation for the coaching work on return and completion of both the L3 ABCC and L3 British Triathlon HPCP. Chris operates in the East Midlands taking advantage of a broad network of support to coach athletes from aspiring professionals to athletes new to the sport. He has a keen interest in physiology but also the psychology of developing resilient athletes.


‘I endeavour to work with athletes using the scientific evidence base and from my experience to support their development in sport and beyond.’
