I’ve had the privilege of training with Matt for nearly two years, and the transformation in my triathlon journey has been insane. Before I started working with Matt, I could barely cycle 20 kilometers and struggled with breaststroke in the pool. Today, I’m proud to say that I’ve completed a full-distance Ironman and last season found myself on the podium in races within my age group. These are accomplishments I could have only dreamt of before Matt’s coaching.

What truly sets Matt apart is his deep understanding of the physical and psychological aspects of triathlon training. He recognised my swimming weakness and continues to support and advise with this. Additionally, his insight into my psychological blockers and weaknesses has helped me to break through mental barriers during tough training sessions and races.

One of the most impressive aspects of Matt’s coaching is his ability to provide remote coaching without sacrificing the quality of support. For nine months, he coached me from a distance and analysed my data ensuring that I had access to his expertise whenever I needed it.

Matt’s coaching goes beyond the racecourse. He incorporates valuable nutritional and sleep hygiene tips, emphasising overall well-being It’s clear that he cares about his athletes as individuals, not just as competitors. He has understood my ‘Why’ and supports the fundraising I do for my children’s charity @harleyjaesouth tailoring my season to maximise the benefits for the charity. I can’t express enough gratitude for Matt’s guidance, dedication, and support. He’s helped me turn my triathlon dreams into reality, and I’m excited to continue this journey with him. If you’re looking for a coach who can help you achieve your triathlon/marathon training goals while prioritising your overall well-being, I wholeheartedly recommend Matt.

Thank you, Matt, for everything you’ve done for me and my triathlon journey, and i’m looking forward to season my second full season with you and Riot Racing Club.
