Right now my focus and passion is helping people to get healthier, leaner and stronger, especially people who have fallen out of love with exercise, or who never liked it, or who have been ill. It wasn't always like that...
...As a Level 3 triathlon coach,
I coached a range of athletes from national age-group champions to novice Ironman athletes; I worked within the London Region Talent ID squad, helping to guide junior elites, and worked as a Coach Educator for British Triathlon (now Triathlon England).
Then came a double dose of parenthood; I ran down my coaching commitments to almost zero in order to focus on being a near full-time dad. Over the ensuing years I became much more interested in coaching non-athletes to better health and fitness, and also became fascinated by kettlebells. I took certifications as a kettlebell instructor and focused more on strength and conditioning.
From a nutritional point of view, I moved first towards a low-carb approach, then 'keto' (yuk!) before committing to a carnivore way of eating, and putting my money where my mouth is, gaining a Carnivore Coach certification.
I was a teenage lacrosse sensation, played good levels of rugby and cricket and squash and five-a-side football before trying triathlon and running, picking up a 2.08 Olympic distance triathlon PB, dipping under 36 minutes for 10k and getting close to 17 minutes for a 5k, all in my mid-30s. I haven't got time for that nonsense now - just loads of kettlebell and bodyweight training. I'm a devoted (carnivore) dog owner and walker, devoted blues harmonica player in a few local bands, and of course a devoted father to my two awesome children.
