Hi I’m coach Damo and I have been involved in endurance sports for most of my life. I competed in my first multi-sport event way back in 1985. A 5k run followed by a cold sea swim (not recommended! Talk about hyperventilating when you hit the water…!) I have competed in numerous multi-sport events from sprint triathlons to Ironmans and everything else in between. In that time I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience which I would like to pass on to you on this website. You can find out more about me here.
If you are new to triathlon, and don’t know where to start, or you have entered an Ironman and feel overwhelmed or just want to know the best places to ride your bike, open water swim and train in and around Brum (Birmingham/West Midlands for non-Brummies), I will be updating this website most days with blogs, swim sessions, rides on Strava and the odd how to video on bike maintenance to name just a few.
To follow me, just like on Facebook, Twitter, Strava or Instagram and you will never miss an update.

“Damo has helped me reach the next level of triathlon performance. I started working with him to help ’step up’ and qualify for the IM World Champs in Hawaii. His methodical, progressive and no fuss approach to coaching and programming suited me well and his deep understanding of endurance training has helped me to identify how to get the best out of myself. ...”
