Endurance sports can be analysed from 3 main perspectives, the athlete, the coach, and the researcher. I have experience in all 3 of these domains. 


I started my career in endurance sports as a cyclist where I aimed to become a professional rider. My training was demanding and although got me to national races and a semi-professional race team, it burned me out. 


As a result, I decide to study sports science at university where I started to learn about endurance sports principles. After four years of education, I obtained my BSc in Sports and Exercise Science and a master’s from the University of Exeter in Sports and Health Sciences. 


I was keen to apply what I had learned from my knowledge and experience as athlete and student, which lead me to start BCA. I started BCA too ensure athletes continually get better without burning out or sustaining injures, like I did. 


However, I wanted to develop my knowledge and skill set further. So, I started a Ph.D. where I research recreational marathon runners. During my Ph.D. I have written articles for The Conversation presented a workshops/conferences and been interviewed by the BBC. 


These experiences combined allow me to see your training from the eyes of an athlete, coach, and researcher. Giving me a complete understand of how to analyse your training requirements and to optimise your performance.
