Hi, I’m Lucy. I’m a Triathlon Coach, Mental Health and Exercise Coach, Personal Trainer and endurance athlete, and I’m passionate about helping you achieve your goals, from your first 5k run, up to Ironman and beyond.
I strongly believe that it’s not just about your time over the finish line, but how you got there. I want you to enjoy your training, and I believe for you to be happy and healthy, your training must be in balance with, rather than competing with, the rest of your life.
Triathlon and Mental Health and Exercise Coach
I am a Level 3 British Triathlon Foundation coach and Level 2 Training Peaks coach, based in York, UK, and have a wide variety of experience. I specialise in triathlon coaching, delivering online training plans via Training Peaks, accompanied by coaching calls to discuss issues such as nutrition, mindset, training-life balance, and the necessary discipline specific skills. I am also passionately involved in club coaching, currently working with York Triathlon Club and previously being Head Coach for three clubs in London and Surrey.
I am a qualified Mental Health and Exercise Coach, helping to maximise your mental health through exercise, as well as help you understand and deal with issues our mind can present, such as lack of motivation, stress, unfair expectations etc.
I coach both men and women and am passionate about addressing the impact of factors such as female hormones and physiology in my training plans and coaching.
I bring my own experience from racing. I have competed at the Worlds and Europeans (Olympic distance), Ironman, and more recently have entered the world of self-supported ultra cycle racing.
I also have experience of the other side of the coin. I came to exercise late in life, and am all too familiar with the feeling of being new to a sport, and thinking everyone else is better and trying to combine training with a full time office job.
Personal training and prehab/rehab
I am a qualified level 3 Personal Trainer and worked for Virgin Active in some of their premium clubs for four years, and was invited to help them develop their triathlon offer in one of their flagship City clubs.
I specialise in triathlon and endurance sports-specific training and prehab/ rehab for running and triathlon injuries, as well as general fitness and weight loss.
