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.

A 1-2-1 coached experience including a monthly training plan tailored to your daily schedule, unlimited communication, professional bike fit and swim analysis.
Highly recommended especially if you are just starting out swimming or cycling. One hour sessions to improve your technique or simply a partner to train with.
"Damo coached me in triathlon initially and then specifically in cycling. Damo has been instrumental to my progression in competing in cycling at an international level providing not only excellent, structured advise but also encouragement and the confidence to pursue my goals."
"I have known Damo since 2006 when I first started triathlon. Over the years he has been the source of lots of great tips and advice. He became my coach officially in November 2014 coaching me through 2015."
"Thanks to Damo’s coaching I went from mission impossible to Ironman finisher. If you are looking for a coach put you trust in Damo I promise he will not let you down."
