Coach Jack Richardson

Profesionnal Triathlon Coach

Learning to undo years of bad habits has helped him to understand and appreciate the role of recovery, nutrition and injury prevention in the life of the working athlete. Coaching alongside a full-time leadership position within education, Jack has grown to understand the challenge of fitting in day-to-day training around a busy schedule and believes that it both centres success and brings about positive changes to body and mind that enable athletes to thrive.
