Jonathan is an Ironman University and ‘Tri Sutto’ qualified coach having spent time abroad with Brett Sutton and European triathlon teams learning and developing his coaching expertise. A high-level athlete most of his life Jon discovered triathlon after a career playing rugby to a high standard in Europe and Australia.

Jonathan has achieved GB Age Group qualifications at both sprint and Olympic distance and taking overall race wins and podium finishes at multiple events. Most recently taking the overall win at the Abersoch triathlon. Having entered the sport as a complete novice himself Jon understands exactly what it’s like to start from scratch. Having come from playing rugby to training for triathlon was a massive change, my body had to adapt itself to a new training stimulus and the goal to become lighter and not heavier! A real challenge for me! When I did my first triathlon, I could not swim front crawl and had to work extremely hard to learn this new skill. It is a testament to what is possible when I started taking race wins and I honestly believe that so much is achievable for people entering the sport. I am a deeply passionate to support my athletes and instil the belief that they can overcome barriers, doubts and fears and achieve their individual goals.

Meet Jonathan

“I live in Bramhall, Cheshire with my partner and our son. Day to day I run a gardening business which I have been dedicated to for over 8 years. My sport is my passion and making the decision to move to coaching as a career I feel is a natural step in my progression as a person and as an athlete. My wealth of knowledge through a lifetime in compeitive sport means that I have a huge bank of experiences to reflect on when it comes to training techiques, injury prevention and recovery, and general well being of your body. I have learnt how to build a sport around a busy working life as well as family, if the desire to succeed is there, then there is always a way to make training work to suit you. Being a dad I have always had to ensure that I strike the right balance between work, training, family and rest which is something I always consider from the outset with all of my athletes.

I love the outdoors! So in my spare time, walking and hiking with my family is one of favourite ways to relax and switch off from the world. There is nothing better than heading to the hills and taking in the amazing countryside that surrounds us."
