Sports physiologist specialising in performance and recovery optimisation working with current world recording holding, Olympic, Commonwealth, and World champion athletes. I have extensive experience in programming endurance training, prescription (including HIIT), training load and adaptation monitoring, and training stimulus enhancement from both practical and research settings working with athletes from developmental to elite level. I have a special interest in developing ‘next practice’ training stimulus through applied interventions that leverage environmental stress with the athletes I work with, through conducting basic research. I formerly raced ITU and Ironman 70.3 triathlon as an elite, but am now a lifestyle athlete chasing a 2 h 20 min marathon.
