Coaching. What it means to us.
The world of coaching is becoming a busy place, which is great, why? We could reel out a classic business school cliché like because it keeps us on our toes, striving to be better. Which by the way isn’t untrue. However for us it represents something else. We’ve been living the multi-sport lifestyle now for 18 years and high level competitive sport for far longer. The number of coaches coming into the sport for us reflects people’s ever increasing passion for the sport and community which is ingrained in us.
At Precision Coaching we believe that no one coach can be an absolute expert. The team is made up of coaches with immense amounts of experience and great knowledge across the board but also in specialist areas. As such we work as a team when coaching to ensure that the athlete gets the very best expertise in every aspect of their training and development. One area in particular that we are very strong is in developing athlete's training programs around injury be it historical or recent. This is achieved working in conjunction with Dr. John Allen a 3 x Olympic track coach and 6 x Lead Physio for the Great Britain Olympic athletics team.
On a performance level we’ve worked with a whole range of athletes from absolute beginner to elite across all distances. We’ve coached over 150 athletes to Great Britain Age Group slots with numerous podiums along the way for both ITU and IRONMAN races.
Experience, is though, in our view, the most important element of coaching. We have decades of experience between us including Olympic coaches, medical staff and medallists. Over the years we’ve worked with all sorts of athletes, with all manner of different priorities. What we have become great at is helping all athletes to achieve their goals and realise their potential within their own individual set of life parameters. This applies to elite and novice alike. There is no set pattern to life so you need to be flexible.
As athletes and coaches we have all been incredibly fortunate to work under some of the very best coaches in Europe both as juniors and later as Professional or Age Group athletes. This has led to developing an entirely results or evidence based approach to our coaching and whilst undergoing more recent qualifications such as the IRONMAN Certified Coach program we do not simply go with the latest fashion.
We love our sport and we love working with individuals or teams to help them achieve their goals. Coaching is a relationship and as with all relationships takes time and work to succeed. At Precision Coaching we want to invest that time and effort in you.
