Coaching, testing, etc.

The Endurance Coach

If you want to get the most out of your training and racing, then you need to go and see Marc Laithwaite and Angela Bardon at The Endurance Coach. They offer sport science support to maximize your training, with vo2 max testing, lactate threshold testing, and metabolic assessment. Marc then assesses the data and will give you a clear analysis of your strengths and weaknesses, and the advice you need to get the most out of your training. He is a top bloke, has a wealth of knowledge, is an excellent athlete himself, is hugely enthusiastic, if not a bit short, and very northern. He doesn’t offer a direct coaching service per se, but will give you all the information you need to train smart. The main disadvantage is that he is based up north in St Helens which is a long way to go if you’re from the south, but worth the trip in my opinion.

Athlete Service

Athlete Service is based in Henley, is an online and in store shop, offers swim, bike, and run analysis, bike fit and servicing, tailored coaching, and lots more. It’s owned and run by Rob Griffiths, a two time Kona finisher, who is very passionate about all things tri. Went for a bike fit there recently and was impressed. My aches and pains from the bike are now diminishing, and my average speeds are on the up. And very reasonably priced too.
