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 17 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.
So the question is, why us? Well 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 80 athletes to Great Britain Age Group slots with a number of podiums along the way for both ITU and IRONMAN races.
We have both recently undertaken the IRONMAN Certified Coach program which we both passed with flying colours. The course got a bit of bad press to start with as people can always be suspicious of something new but the truth is this is a very good course better in a number of respects than some of the Federation courses available but hopefully this will provide a benchmark for all courses to get better. We strongly believe in keeping up to date with the latest advancements in exercise science and this represents part of that for us.
Experience, is though, in our view, the most important element of coaching. Over the last 17 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.
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.
