Here’s a few of them talking about their journey so far…

Grant helped programme my training for my first ever 70.3 triathlon and I would 100% recommend PFG!

My plan was really well tailored to my goals, but also to my lifestyle, and took the stress out of worrying whether I had the time to train and whether I was going to be fit enough!! If I’d have followed a generic plan off the internet I would have found it much harder.

His weekly check-in phonecalls were great for keeping me on-track and motivated, and for tweaking my programme if needed. Being a triathlete himself, Grant was also brilliant and walking me through the prep for raceday and taking away the stress of the unknown. I’m really happy with how everything went and I completed the event with a smile on my face 🙂

Katie – 1st time 70.3 finisher and 5k swimmer

I’d met Triathletes in my Cycling time. I’d ask myself questions ‘Could I do that???’ I spent time reading books and watching YouTube videos but I didn’t want to make a mistake. Entrance my Coach, Grant. Grant set to work, helping me plan my way through Triathlon so I could focus on my Training. The combined help of the TrainingPeaks app would let me know my Weeks/Months Training so I could tie in my family life and training effectively. Grant was good enough to stay with me on my first half distance Tri the ‘Cotswold 113’ which is perfect for beginners. I could leave you with hints and tips, run trainer’s and bikes, but my best advice would be: Leave the planning to Grant so you can concentrate and enjoy your triathlon Journey.

Nigel Brown – Middle distance triathlon

When I agreed to take part in a charity cycle ride from Bristol to Barcelona I knew I would need some help achieving the fitness required. Grant offers flexibility for training sessions that fit in around working full time which was great for me. He started me off with getting me fit enough to get on my bike and giving me exercises that I could also do at home. Grant then set up a 4 week plan to improve my fitness levels and this got me to my peak so when I set off on my challenge I was ready for the cycling 80 miles a day for 3 weeks. His help was a massive part of me achieving this challenge and I would not hesitate to recommend him for whatever fitness challenge you want to achieve.

Karen Bye – Bike ride from Bristol to Barcelona 

I approached Grant again for help to achieve my personal goal of running a marathon. I was a bit sceptical as how things going to work with me living 120 miles away from Bristol and not be able to see the coach in person.

Grant provided me with the structured training plan, that he release every 4 weeks. I update the plan with feedback on how I felt after each training session. We have a catchup call at the end of every week, where Grant goes through the comments and adjust the plan on training peaks accordingly. As I was getting a tailored plan to follow, it took the stress out of me around planning and all I had to do is simply follow the plan.

Madhu Nachiappan – 1st time marathon finisher

Grant produced a personalised training plan for me to complete over 12 weeks to help me prepare for a half marathon – and it was awesome!

Despite me living just under 200 miles away, Grant’s fantastic communication and regular check-ins, enabled me to train injury free to a planned schedule of runs adjusted to my home and work life when needed.
I could not recommend Grant’s services enough – an expert in this area with great communication and commitment to you achieving your goals.

Amy Gudgeon – Cardiff half marathon

I started working with Grant in June 2021 because I wanted some structure to my training and needed help losing weight and improving fitness.  Having two young children and running a business it is difficult to find time for exercise.

Within 18 months Grant has helped me complete a Half Ironman Triathlon, including an 1800m swim in a choppy lake, completing the event alongside me, providing plenty of motivation along the way. I also completed an Olympic Triathlon, a half marathon, two charity bike rides over 50 miles, as well several open water swim sessions.

If you are looking to get into Triathlon, get fitter, faster, lose weight or just have some structure in your training, I highly recommend Grant and PFG.

Dan Britton 1st time Olympic and Ironman 70.3 triathlon finisher

Grant has been helping me train for a half iron man; This is my first triathlon and the training plan has been great, I feel fully prepped for the race, but relaxed going into it. The constant comms and tips have worked a treat. I would definitely recommend

Ottis French-Sanders  1st time Ironman 70.3 triathlon finisher

I had my 1st first open water swimming session with Grant today and it was great! He really helped build my confidence being in open water and helped me improve my stroke, swimming near me for support. Grant was supportive, encouraging and so easy to get on with. Looking forward to my next session and feel I’ve already made so much progress in just 1 session already. A great coach, highly recommend.

Nic Sunshine – 1st season of open water triathlon

Got lessons with Grant to get ready for an upcoming Triathlon as I struggled to do 2 lengths of a pool without getting out of breath. Straight away Grant noticed what I was doing wrong and quickly helped me correct it with the proper technique and explaining why it works. 3 lessons on and I am so much more confident in my swimming and not worried about the swim part of the tri. 100% will recommend Grant to anyone!

Luke Oldfield – Took 5 mins off his previous Olympic distance swim PB

Grant has taught me how to condition my body to run further and more efficiently. I know how important core strength is, especially sitting at a desk 8 hours a day then expecting my body to be able to cover a 10km at the end of it. My fitness before this regular training was not poor, but my strength was feeble. I am now stronger than I have ever been, and this physical exertion has protected my mental strength in the hardest year I’ve ever gone through.

I don’t think I am able to put into words how grateful I am for everything Grant has taught me so far.

Lisa Holyoake – Multi 10k and half marathon finisher

I first met Grant when he was recommended to assist with my training to get me back to fitness after having a bike accident. (push bike vs car doing 70MPH which very nearly killed me). He got me back to a level of fitness and strength which helped with everyday life as well as helping me to get back on the bike. Earlier on this year I decided to do the bike ride again (the one I was doing when I had my accident) and wanted to get coaching to get me through it, 430 miles round trip. I decided to speak to Grant about this as he had been there through my rehab and I cannot thank him enough for the work he has done. I have noticed considerable improvements in my strength and fitness on the bike. He is very easy to get on with and adjusts what is needed to deal with my mixed schedule. Nothing is too difficult for him to sort out. I cannot recommend Grant enough.
