We have a dedicated coaching team to offer varying services, as well as linking to some fantastic partners who can offer just that little bit more!
This site is designed to be a portal for all athletes – from novices and beginners to elites alike – and treat every individual as unique. After all, we all have our own demands, situations and lives to take care of outside of sport!
We do regular swim and run technique sessions – both in 1:1 and group sessions – and now we can do video analysis for swimming technique as well as the running! It’s a new tool for us to be able to help you!
Individually tailored to the conditions with as much contact time as required. We can do ongoing plans with unlimited contact, or more of a fixed term training plan where we can set all the sessions for you.
We work with various clubs in organising their swim and general training programmes to be as effective as possible.
I used to be a ‘same pace athlete’, but with John’s coaching I was able to reduce my training volume and still increase my performance. John helped me train smarter, peak for the races and improve my running. His training plans, supportive nature and ability to motivate people helped me achieved 2 personal bests and complete the multiday adventure with a smile on my face.
John – I really enjoyed the training and the journey, thank you.
He has worked with me around a hectic work life which sometimes can mean very long hours and we have reached a perfect balance with training and life.
I have improved dramatically under John’s guidance and intend to continue to work with him for a long as I am racing Triathlon. I am currently in the most consistent and best block of training I’ve ever achieved and I could not have done this without his help. John Wood is a brilliant coach and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Many people seem to get in the pool and plough up and down for length after length. Here's a little secret of the swimming world: you do not have to swim 400m repeats or a 3k straight to get better or faster. In fact, if you are a beginner swimmer, shorter repeats...
Very few athletes that I see or coach are lazy. Quite the opposite! But, many swimmers work extremely hard and that excessively hard work does not pay off in expected gains. Instead of working harder to make small gains, why not think about working smarter. By...
