Hello, my name is Max, I am a 24 year old international athlete and coach. I have been racing and training for around 14 years. Within this time, I have learned a lot about the sport, race prep, mentality, nutrition and what it takes to get the best out of yourself.
I studied a sports science degree at University. It was here I gained a better understanding of the body and its response to exercise, fuelling the body efficiently, and the psychology of sport. Whilst at University, I trained with Olympic athletes, and was in a coaching set up ran by one of the top coaches in the world, and ex Olympian. I also won a national title for 800m and ran for my country at an international event, and also won the British Universities Indoor Championship.
In addition to my track achievements, I have also have a strong background in fell/mountain running, having represented Great Britain 4 times, including a top 15 placing at the World Mountain Running Championships and won various national fell running titles as a junior.
I was lucky enough to receive a scholarship to a top American University and again, was coached by a world renowned coach. I also got more involved in the coaching side of the sport myself, and realised how much satisfaction I got from helping others achieve their goals.
My running career, interest in health and fitness and drive to help others lead me to pursue a personal training qualification over lockdown, so I could help, motivate and inspire others. I learned a lot more about nutrition, weight loss and strength and conditioning and how to structure a programme and work with clients
I now want to pass on everything I have learned and help others achieve their goals, no matter how big or small. Whether you are a complete beginner , or aiming for specific race, time or distance, I am here to help and support you on your journey the whole way.
