WHAT PEOPLE SAY...
I’m a member of Dacorum Triathlon Club where we are lucky to have Jo as our head coach. Her training sessions have a great mix of being both fun and challenging with a focus on injury prevention as well as hitting your goals - you will be worked hard and pushed when necessary but you will also be reigned in if you need to be. As a person as well as on a coaching level, I have found Jo to be naturally approachable, empathetic and supportive. An example of this was when I had a frightening cold water swimming experience last year which massively knocked my confidence; Jo was great at helping me both rationalise the experience and find some coping strategies for the lake during the club open water training sessions. On race day when I felt nervous before the swim, it was her words of reassurance on text the day before that I repeated to myself as I headed down the pontoon…and I ended up getting one of my best swim times for a 70.3 that day! Thank you for everything you do for us as a club and as individual athletes! :-)

I joined DTC to help with my goal of completing my first triathlon to keep fit after deciding to stop playing football. With Jo's training and guidance I managed to complete my first three of varied distances in my first year. I'm now also working with Jo independently to try and aim for faster times through in depth analysis and programming.
Joined DTC & was warmly welcomed by coach Jo & the team. Jo delivers a varied coaching package that is based on enjoying the activity whilst building skills & stamina. She creates a can do environment that enables you to reach new goals without even realising it!
Since working with Jo through the Dacorum Tri club my overall fitness but most importantly my technique has improved. Jo makes sessions fun & accessible helping all levels of ability to improve.

Jo’s approach to coaching is refreshing, fun and extremely informative. I have made more gains in the last year with her than I had over the previous three years combined. I have learnt new techniques particularly for swimming and running which have contributed to consistent improvements in my performance.
Jo is an awesome coach. Her sessions are challenging yet fun and totally inclusive, carefully adapted to suit every ability.
She was a huge support to me when recovering from injury, providing me with the motivation, encouragement and training I needed to make a full recovery and a successful return to running. I cannot thank her enough!
