Coach Matthew Linney


Triathlon can appear to some to be a difficult sport to access. However, whether it is your first or fifth triathlon, I can help you to reach your goals. With 15 years of participation experience and 23 of teaching, I can help you avoid making the same mistakes I have! Triathlon is an enriching and fun sport and, with the help of a training plan and online consultations, we can discuss all aspects of your training and work together to achieve your goals. I currently coach at a local club and have experience of working with athletes of all abilities. I entered my first half marathon in 2008 and have participated in endurance sports ever since. This includes triathlons, aquathlons, sportives and trail running and fell races. I have participated in Ironman UK, two half iron distance triathlons and numerous Olympic and sprint distances. In that time, I have been self-coached; consuming as much literature on triathlon as possible, which has been a key component in supporting my own weight management. My knowledge and experience of the sport should save you a lot of work, so you can concentrate on the fun part; your training and racing. I am someone who enjoys all aspects of the sport with a very good understanding of training, nutrition, equipment, rest, strength and conditioning, psychology and racing. I think my own experience with triathlon makes it easier to empathise with someone new to the sport, or who may not be finishing in the top 10. I understand the demands of fitting triathlon into family, work and personal life so I will devise a programme that works for YOU; not a general “one size fits all” programme. I have been a high school mathematics teacher for the past 23 years, so I understand the power of using data and building positive and encouraging relationships. The initial consultation is free, so if the relationship doesn’t fit it, it will have cost you nothing. Please contact me for more details.
