With top ten finishes across ITU, long distance and Xterra events, Doug’s ten year stint as an elite triathlon has given him a rather well rounded approach to endurance sports coaching. Whilst he started triathlon as a national level swimmer, Doug found his strength to be on two wheels both physically and technically, regularly posting the fastest bike splits in pretty much everything he entered.
Living in Bath, Doug has coached the University of Bath triathlon squad, the Bath Amphibians Triathlon club and worked for British Triathlon coaching world-class athletes based there. In 2013 Doug began managing BW Cycling, a performance bike shop specialising in Bike fitting and Fitness testing – meaning he is in a great position to advise not only on this
Coaching for Doug is more than just a process; it’s a chance to help educate athletes whilst helping them attain their goals via an interesting and enjoyable journey.
