Founder | Jonathan Melville
Before going to university I always had a passion for sport. My passion lead me to road cycling in my late teens and like a lot of people I caught the cycling bug pretty quickly. Soon, I was training everyday (rain or shine) and the joy for the sport continued to grow. But, sadly two seasons into my cycling journey I obtained a number of injuries and illnesses, which forced me to step down as a rider. This happened to be when university work ramped up and resulted in a new passion. Developing and exploring the dimensions of endurance sports. With my new passion I created BCA and have never looked back.

Subsequent to founding BCA I have led tremendously successful projects. My personal favourite was coaching a triathlete to work towards the prestigious Brighton and Hove Triathlon, who finish third in their category and in the top 10% overall in just 76 days. The project required a great attention to detail, which I hope shows in the delivery of my coaching.
Before BCA I was always involved in coaching as I enjoy helping athletes achieve their goals. I have been coaching in a variety of sports for over 6 years including cycling, athletics, rowing, triathlon etc. My experience has allowed me to work successfully with a diverse range of athletes from students to masters.
