“β€œβ€You introduced me to the ********* diet and have continued to blend its principles into our weekly calls and daily and training nutrition suggestions. Most recently looking at foods that are right for me on long bike rides to compliment the carb drinks (bars found and ordered!). The result has been no weight gain over the winter months / off season, no more cramping / bloated stomach from the wrong foods and WAY more energy. (only vice I can't give up is the coffee - but caffeine is down to hardly anything day to day and feel loads better for it) . Thanks Joe :-)” ”
Dannie Hayes, EXTRA Coaching client since September 2019, email received Feb 2024.
“On the ‘coaching works’ theme - I knew I needed to loose weight and I knew I wanted to loose it too. Having Joe on my side made the difference between desire and achievement. Joe gave me the framework and method to turn 16kg of fat into thin air. ”
Jon Getz. EXTRA coaching Triathlete, February 2024.
“On the ‘coaching works’ theme - I’ve just finished ten events in ten weeks. This has brought me four pbs, three medals, (two at National Championships and one at the European Middle Distance Championships) and bucket loads of fun. Could I have achieved this on my own? That is a categorical NO! Thanks Joe.”
Kath Finn. EXTRA coaching Triathlete racing with JBST since 2016.
“Do you remember the ridiculous set of goals I set for our first season together? It was in our first or second phone conversation… Win all my club champ tt’s up to 100miles, Beat all my PB’s (10,25,50 TT), Go sub 20 in a 10TT. We had a chuckle together… I believe you said ‘not much then!’. After the weekend there were 2 left to get: beat my 50TT and go sub 20… Well…only the 50TT left now ;-) 19:57 You know you’re pretty amazing at sport science and coaching πŸ™‚I hope you know that Joe. Did first 10TT of the year...PB 20:27!!! Still can’t believe it and I’m looking at the file!!. Woke up still in disbelief πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ hopefully get a bit of gain when I sort out my bars and still got the Timewarp skinsuit to add into the mix πŸ˜€ the sub 20 is on!!”
Neil Poulton. EXTRA coaching, Bioracer AeroOptimisation, Time Trial and Track racing from 2018.
“Job done! Agreed plan kept front of mind, held off on the bike and ran stronger. 25 mins faster than last outing at this race/venue and a 70.3 PB by 5 mins, despite a hot and hilly run. BETA fuel is greaaaat btw. No issues at all throughout and plan stuck to. Very happy with that. Three weeks to the full, lots to look forward to. Catch up Tuesday. Thanks for all your support as always. Top Coach πŸ™πŸΌπŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»””
Dan Jarrold. EXTRA coaching Triathlete
“Not too bad today Joe. 5:15 (Holkham half) on a course that is harder than Nottingham. 12 minutes faster than my previous PB on that course. Good swim (34 mins), solid bike (averaged 20.7) and OK run (1:50). Reasonably happy although still running with a pain in my Achilles. I will get my physio to give me a course of treatment between now an IM Hamburg””

“I seriously cannot thank you enough for not only providing a top professional coaching service but transforming and improving my health and well being. When I joined you last April I was totally exhausted by strenuous HIT training, with my recovery taking days to overcome. Since joining you I am now completing weekly 13 to 14hrs training. The additional advice you provide on nutrition, supplementation and more is exceptional, this was highlighted this morning in the transformation of my recent blood profiling results.”

Just kept telling myself I’m going to catch him it took 24 miles but I had him… couldn’t have done it without you I mean two world championships qualification all in my 50th Birthday year it’s just incredible that we pulled it off bud ! It’s awesome 😎 ”

“Joe, thanks for your guidance and support over the last two years. In addition to getting me across the line in two Ironman races, your focus on Zone 1 has paid off with personal bests at 10K, Half Marathon, Olympic and 70.3. I’d recommend anyone trying to balance work, family and sporting ambitions to work with you, not just for the results, but learning about the smarter and better ways to train while balancing multiple priorities.”
Mike Bowie. Triathlete, Coaching client 2016-2018.
“I came to you at the end of 2017 as a pretty down beat triathlete so I went for a last throw of the dice to see if I could possibly integrate the sport with a busy family and work life and enjoy it again, whilst having some ambitions which appeared totally in achievable in my state at the time. Well what can i say!! The improvements I have gained in knowledge over training, nutrition, general health and strategy has blown me away, this has been reflected in me developing an aerobic base where I can run comfortably close to under 7 min miling in z1, a new Ironman pb by 40 minutes and top 4% of the overall field at the European championships in my 2nd ironman and winning a half ironman whilst in full training! All things I didn’t think were possible let alone in the space of 6 months!! The biggest testimony though is that I now love the sport again, totally enthused and it now integrates perfectly with my family and work with it enhancing everything and not being a burden anymore!! Thankyou.”
Matt Pritchard. Triathlete, Property Developer, Dad, Premium client.
“Signed up for a second year with Joe, after a very successful first 12 months. Coach looks at the whole athlete first and doesn’t push a vanilla, one size fits all training plan. His plans adapt to accommodate the demands of modern life, but are still very goal oriented and data led. He knows when to soft pedal, he knows when to press. New thinking is introduced along the way, addressing wellbeing on and off the bike. My annual medical produced my best ever scores. I cycled more miles than ever before in the year. I notched a number of personal bests along the way. I’m not a competing athlete, but I come into year two looking and being demonstrably being fitter and healthier. ”
Stephen Moon. Cyclistt. CEO. E-mail testimony.
“Wow! What an amazing season. I got to the wrong side of 60, thinking I'll never put in a lifetime PB again. Well, how wrong can you get! Since last year I've lost 13kg in weight and had a good winter's training. I've never been under the hour prior to this year, now, I've done it 6 times, including a 58:25 more than 4 minutes quicker than my previous PB. All thanks to Joe's wise words, feeding strategies, encouragement, and great training plans. Last year, I was happy to go under 26mins for 10 miles, this year I've gone under 25 mins 14 times and broken 14 of my course PB's. All down to consistent training and some great pacing and racing tips from Joe. I've also won 2 Welsh Age Group Medals at 10 and 25 miles and a National Age Group Medal at 25miles (59:14), set new lifetime PB's for 3.8, 5, and 7.5 miles. I've never felt this strong and fit before!”
Debbie Sheridan. Time Triallist.
“My endurance running and racing has hugely improved and Joe has given me many helpful small tips that have made a big difference. I’ve finished 3 x 100 mile runs in brutally hot weather this summer and got PBs on the South Downs Way 50 and Chilterns 50. I’m well on my way to my third ultra running grand slam. Thank you.”
Tracey Watson. Ultra Runner, E-mail testimony. Coaching client since May 2017
“I’ve been using Coach Joe’s Z1 focused system for five months and I’m in the best shape I have been in January for many, many years in measurable terms such as training hours achieved, heart rate, body composition, lack of general health and injury problems. Other “time crunched” or “high intensity” style coaching programmes used in previous years have always resulted in me breaking down at some stage. The Z1 approach has given me a real foundation. I was initially concerned about “junk miles” using the methodology, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. It works.”
S.M, Company CEO. E-mail testimony. EXTRA Coaching client since September 2017
“Joe - thanks for another great year! The results say it all Marathon PB and good for age time; Half ironman PB; Olympic PB and 2nd in my age group at London; Sprint distance PB; 10km PB; One year older -> one year faster all on 5,5 hours a week training - now that's smart! Looking forward to 2018.”
Darrel Yawitch, Triathlete on EXTRA Coachign Programme. EXTRA Coaching client since October 2015
“You’ve brought me a long way in 4 years Joe; leaner, fitter, I’ve learnt to listen to my body, we’ve been able to knock over 30min off my previous best in the Medio Dragon Ride. You’ve given me the confidence and ability to tackle the far longer Gran Fondo and achieve a decent time. I’m also still getting some PB’s even though I’m now mid- fifties. Thank you so much Joe”
Ken Anderson Sportive client on EXTRA package 2013 to 2017
“Joined JBST in late 2016 at the end of my second Tri season on a club recommendation. Following Joe's training plans and ethos has seen a PB by 20mins at 70.3 and a top half finish in a tough race at IM Sweden first time at full distance. Exceeding the target and finishing strong. Train smart, race strong. Thanks Joe, that would not have happened without your input. Now let's lose an hour before next year...”
Dan Jarrold post Ironman Sweden 12h3mins debut. Coaching EXTRA client since October 2016
“I very quickly saw that Joe has a depth of knowledge like no other. He has clearly used and collated information over the years with a passion to learn and adapt any techniques and methods he uses. I must admit that the smart training Joe has given me has developed me very quickly, definitely in a physical way, but also in a psychological sense, putting me in a very positive, confident state ahead of the 70.3 world champs in the USA next month. If I have gained this much in such a short space of time, Imagine what we can do in the years to come! Exciting times.”
Harry Edney EXTRA coaching client, A/G winner Weymouth 70.3 2016 - 1st Allerthorpe Triathlon.
“Reckon that has been a pretty good first 6 months - I'm well, uninjured, happy, having loads of fun, learning, pbs all over the place and qualifications gained for next year - good job!”
Kath Finn Standard coaching client, e-mail after European Middle Distance Champs. Coaching client since December 2016
“I am six months into my coaching relationship with Joe, and my understanding of training myself, the sport and the important balance to achieve between life’s other arenas could not be more different from where I started. Joe’s constant education, planning, encouragement and understanding was the missing piece from my independent approach over the last two seasons (my first two in Triathlon). I had read loads and listened to advice previously but in fact taken on very little of what fits in getting me to where I want to be. Joe’s focus on smart training does completely fit with me. I now have expert input on tap for understanding my short and long-term training patterns, session value and objectives, when to push and when to rest, not to mention advice on diet, equipment, race scheduling and so much more. I am able to tackle more training of a higher quality and recover more quickly following Joe’s advice than I could ever have achieved with my old ‘go longer’ ‘go faster’ focus – which was in many way’s more breaking me down than building me up. Ali Brownlee I will never be, but I have more enjoyment in training than ever before, and a few weeks out from my first event of a busy 2017 season, I am raring to go. Thank you Joe”

Everything I achieved in triathlon from podium places, to finishing incredibly hard races as Ironman Lanzarote was, to recover from hard and debilitating injuries, I owe it to you and to your knowledge and professional approach. I cannot find words enough to describe how grateful I am, 11 years well spent.”

“After 3 years of Ironman racing I have finally gone under 10hrs, with a 3:15 marathon. Twice this year I have produced these results, taking a massive 45 minutes off my run time. Since utilising Coach JB for the last 12 months my Aerobic engine has grown beyond what I thought I was capable of, and now comfortably running sub 7min/miles. Through well thought out tailored training plans, not only has JB improved me in all three disciplines but we have kept injury at bay. Thanks to Coach JB that dream of racing at Kona is now on the horizon!”

Adrian Lane Time Trial Cyclist September 2016 - PB by almost 10-minutes and average power up 25-miles. First started EXTRA coaching November 2015.
"Still very happy to get under 6 hours…Bike split was faster than my “dream goal” version. I thought I was going a bit too fast because my legs felt a bit damaged on the last few hills - possibly more so than at Maastricht. I don’t think I was very good at sticking to power, although I did try on hills. Run split was only slightly slower than my “dream goal”, but importantly for me, I felt strong and in control throughout. I could speed up to get around people and, after discovering I was running well, I could make myself stick below 9min mile pace. I could have run further at that pace, although probably not a full marathon. So thanks again. ”

I felt stronger on the bike and despite high cross winds and one section where we were riding into the wind I averaged 19.7 on the bike (2:56:16 for 92.8K) and a new PB on the run (for a triathlon) of 01:44:58.

Great moral boost and happy with performance. 4 or 5th out of 29 riders 😊 — — S4/25 mile TT: low wind, PB time of 56:43 which is just over 3 minutes off of the last 25. Had an issue with pacing and feel that a 55 is possible on this course. Power around 325/328 which is up a little from last time. Overall very pleased with how it went :) —— 25 mile Tt.

"Thanks for again for awesome coaching Joe - somehow managed to get a PB. Swim wasn't great - swam much further than I refer to due to foggy Google and bright sunshine. Smashed the bike - the average power will come out under 200w. Somehow managed to get a 5hr 12. First half of the run was really strong and consistent - second half was tough. Battery on garmin ran out - which made it tough to pace (and affected me psychologically). Found it really hard to start running again quite a few times after walking through aid stations. Happy with a PB though! Thank you”

"Ironman is an event unlike any other and, as a first timer, I had no idea how to train to optimise performance. Fortunately I met Joe Beer and he was able to use his wealth of experience to guide me to race day, not only focusing on the very specific training sessions themselves, but also on recovery, fuelling and aerodynamics. Through the carefully controlled increase in volumes I remained injury free and arrived at the start line feeling in the best shape if my life. I surprised myself by qualifying for the World Championships in Kona, which led to a three month extension of the training programme and a further focus from Joe in his constant search for marginal gains. The heat and wind of Kona lived up to expectations but it was an incredible experience and I was pleased with a personal best time [of 9hrs51]. Overall, it's been an incredible, life changing, year and I am very grateful to Joe for allowing me to benefit from his knowledge and experience and attention to detail."

A huge thank you to Joe and roll on next race season. Really happy with the performance and with the result.

I have worked with Joe for nearly two years. During this time he has taken me from a solid age-group athlete to an Ironman (completing Ironman Nice in 10hr33), and this year helped me smash my previous best times for 10, 25 and 50 miles. It takes times to mentally adapt to his philosophy of zone 1 training (85% of time in zone 1), but it works and it is much more sustainable. He understood my background and proneness to injury. He has been great at tailoring things to keep me injury free, adapting training to cope with my busy life, as well as identifying others areas for marginal (and not so marginal) gains. I feel like I have really got the best out of myself, learned a tremendous amount (particularly feeding and pacing for the longer events) and enjoyed the last two years. Thank you Joe!

Thanks Joe, got a PB at Challenge Roth of 10 hr 39, knocking a huge 35 minutes of my bike as well as a PB on the swim and run. The base work, practing race nutrition, power plan and completing a thorough race day plan were all invaluable - felt really strong on the bike, avoided any gut issues for the first time and was able to cope with the high temperature on the run. An unforgettable day! The rest of the season was pretty amazing too with a PB in my Olympic and Middle Distance races leading up to Roth. Thanks so much!

Thank you for helping me improve my 13 year old ironman distance PB by 5mins and my 2012 course PB by 39mins at Outlaw 2015 (in less than favourable conditions) on Sunday. To say I’m pleased is a bit of an understatement. My training, whilst always enjoyable has lately, as you know, been showing signs of my performances improving, and in races matching my own PB’s set years ago. Most of all I seem to be recovering from races and harder efforts more quickly than I can remember, and this is chiefly due to the programmes you set and the flexibility of training built around my day job. Your emphasis on 80% Z1 work in particular causes me less physical stress and benefits me in being able to do more work (or going faster) for the same heart rate. But it’s not just about the programmes, your advice and motivation on all subjects triathlon is given from a background of research and product knowledge and at my bike fit at the end of last year you put me into a very comfortable and maintainable aero position for all distances. All ‘marginal gains’ but all very welcome. Here’s to IM Wales in September and my 15th Ironman distance triathlon……
Dave Ambler 14x Ironman Finisher, PB at 59. Coaching starting January 2002..
Having suffered a stroke and several injuries over the past 10 years, I have struggled to find a coach with the dedication and willingness to commit to seeing me as an individual and tailoring my training to the issues caused by the medication and injuries. Joe has been a breath of fresh air! His commitment to help me to help myself has been remarkable. For the first time in two years I have gone six months without enduring a stress related injury and yet we’ve managed to get several weeks of over 20 hours training. Joe’s commitment to giving advice and protecting me from myself has been incredible. The depth of his knowledge is amazing and when you ask a question there is never any doubt as to whether your coach really knows the answer, he knows! He gives constant advice and is on hand when ever you need him. He’s totally committed to making you as good as you can be. Looking for a great coach….look no further!

Really pleased with my results.. 13h 55m.. where did that come from??!! I found the swim quite easy... started to pass some of the bikes that went out hard , which was a nice confidence booster, the wind wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, more cross winds than head on, really pleased with time, 7h29m.. that's 16min quicker than last year on the new 2 loop course and 10th place in AG. Things started to go a bit wobbly by about mile 18, which, to be honest, was better than I expected with the limited run training, my good knee started to hurt and started to effect my running gait, so did a bit more walking than running, which was probably just as well because I'd lost the ability to count to ten by then.. and then at mile 21 a blister on my toe burst.. yuk! and ouch! so the last lap was quite uncomfortable.. but by now I've got a PB in my head and I really, really, REALLY want to come in under 14 hours!! so just got my head down and got on with it. Averaged 11.58 MPM, and HR was 142. and a HUGE smile for the camera

“Training for all 3 sports helped build endurance without the rigorous impacts of purely running. Despite not actually racing all distances I am quicker at everything from 5k to marathons and that's with pretty much 90%+ training in zone 1! I've actually run more this year than any previous years but it has felt like less due to the lower intensity, increased recovery speeds and much smarter training plan. Arranging sessions in an order that allows the best recovery has helped prevent injury(ie trying not to run consecutive days). Body work and stretching/roller also feels beneficial.!"

“In the first month of training with you, I have found that I have seen improvements in all three Disciplines. My cycling top speed is the same, but my heart rate is about 20-25bpm lower. I'm really enjoying training at the moment and the Ironman I've have entered, is still daunting, but not quite as daunting as it was! I now believe I can complete the race.."

“I must say the programme for the weeks ahead looks brilliant. I am really looking forward to repeating the experience of Liverpool again at London, as I said I reckon we can get another minute out of the run and perhaps 30 sec each off the swim and the bike but still be within the pace levels. Thanks a mill for all your support Joe, it makes all the difference."
Roger Sheridan, Triathlete, World Championship Age Group Qualifier, by e-mail July 2013. Coaching client since Nov 2010
It's not often I am proud of a result soon after finishing but I really know I did well today. Apart from fading a little late in the run (which cost me age group 3rd place) I felt strong and in control all day. I even had a decent swim (for me)! I've definitely proved to myself that I am back as a triathlete, and also that 70.3 is a distance worth doing again in the future. I wouldn't have got from last year to here without your guidance. The proof is always in the pudding, yeah? So thanks again.

And-  The Arthur Justin Trophy-  Beryl Burton is on the trophy as a previous winner and it goes back to 1946. 1:12:03 on a hard course only a few went under the hour. I beat the second lady by just 6 secs. Your pacing suggestion was spot on, I did the first 12.5miles in 37:06 at 171 Watts and hr 164. Then was able to increase speed and power for the 2nd half, the time 34:55 at 180 Watts and hr 168.  Thanks Joe, some good winter training and a Joe Beer Majorca camp has done the trick!!”

Hi Joe, quick update. Fantastic and tough day yesterday great course great event brilliant support. Much much better than first Bolton IM. Your bike power figures worked a treat as suggested held back on climbs a bit frustrating at the time but because of the control had a great run and time on a hilly course. 700 O/A and 9th in A/G, progress.

Still kind of blown away by the result on Sunday. Kind of doesn't seem real. I am so very grateful for all your help and guidance over the last few years and am certain that I would not have got to this point without you. So a MASSIVE thank you!!!

We have now finished the targetted races for thie season very successfully… the big objectives have been achieved (thank you)" 12th July 2013 I got a 22:35 PB last night beating all my rivals this time (nearest one being 5 secs behind !). Very satisfying. Glad I took your advice to ride it as I probably wouldn’t have done it if we hadn’t spoke. I really have got more from the season than I could have hoped for, thanks for all the excellent advice” (23:40 was his best coming into the 2010 season)" July 2010

“Thank you for all your support this season, it’s honestly been invaluable. At the start of the season I was in a bit of a state and disillusioned with the whole scene, genuinely ready to write it all off. Our first chat was a shot in the dark, I listened and followed your advice and surprise, surprise my results improved. In hindsight I’m a little disappointed with Madrid but mainly through measures out of my control. I feel I was ready but events on the day conspired against my prep. Cotswolds however was amazing. Diamonds in the legs as they say! Nutrition was 100% spot on, as was your pacing. To win my age group and to run at the pace you told me I could do was crazy! So a GB AG outing, an AG win at my first 70.3 and off the back of that I’ve also PB’d in 10mile and 25mile TT’s AND won the Cornish Cup (Trophy inbound) πŸ† To top it all off I’m about to welcome a baby into the world in the next week or so, all in all a great season, especially given that a few months ago I was ready to quit. I honestly owe you -and by extension of your coaching, Kinger- everything this season. Although hopefully not the baby part, I’m pretty sure that was all me. Thanks mate, we’ll catch up soon to action next seasons prep and goals. Legend”

"Just a quick one to say that I’m out in Lanza and been able to give the bike go outside for the first time since the aerofit, what a difference!! Lots of PRs cropping up on Strava, time on TT bars for long stretches really comfortable and today I was freewheeling, with training wheels but holding the position on the way back to Costa Teguise and the boys were having to pedal to keep up!! Well impressed! Thanks again, Pete
Email from Pete Lloyd January 22nd 2018 - BioRacer POP-UP Aero Optimisation session, Tenby.
"I have to say I was hugely surprised and pleased with the level of detail that I experienced during the aero fit process with you Joe, the gains we managed to find on the day were massive considering the overall context and I cant wait to see what those wattage savings translate into during the coming Ironman season!! Thanks again and I advise anyone looking to get faster to get signed up and save those watts!!"
BioRacer POP-UP Aero Optimisation session, Tenby Nov 2017, Mat Pritchard
"Being a coach at a local turbo centre, it was too good an opportunity to turn down when Joe offered to take the Bioracer Aero Virtual Wind tunnel bike fit system on the road! I was one of four clients Joe analysed and fitted during the day. I was really impressed with how thorough he was and also with the accuracy of the system and software. Having had a good season by most standards, Welsh age group champ, Challenge World finals and a 70.3 PB, I was after extra gains because I just missed out on the 70.3 worlds by one place in one race and 44 seconds in another! Joe advised on equipment; covering tyres, tyre pressure as well as skins-suits and trip socks. The aerotunnel software picked the slightest of movements and showed the gains being made with each change of position. In summary the BioRacer system and Joe saved me over 8 seconds per mile! Gains I aim to put to good use in the 2018 season"

"Great session with Joe. Some huge wattage savings obtained without the need for a huge adjustment. My position is now not only more aero, but allows me to generate more power with a less restricted pedal stroke. Really happy with the improvements made.."
BioRacer Aero Optimisation client Evan Rouse, July 2017
"worth it even if it’s just to understand more about the numbers side of cycling, you get to see in real time what little changes can make. Joe giving you feed back throughout, making sure you can see forward by Reading back the data on the screen, best part was seeing the different from how i was before, to the position i can hold with position training now. and little thing you can do for different distance events."
BioRacer Aero Optimisation client Crystal Spearman, RTTC medllist and World 12h Silver medallist, sessions May & July 2017
"Hi Joe Just thought I would let you know I raced my first TT on Sunday after implementing the changes you recommended during the aero session a few weeks ago. Would you believe it I came away with a 10 mile PB and a massive 1min 30sec off last year time on the same course. Thanks again for all the aero wake up call."
BioRacer Aero Optimisation client Martyn Leach May 2017
"Thanks for (Aero Optimisation Session) Friday Joe. I took the first vet prize on the S26 on Sunday by 1 second. It must have been my new starting position with my hands in the middle and not on the cow horns."
BioRacer Aero Optimisation client Paul Vowles May 2017
"Very worthwhile. The session gives you immediate data on changes made and makes you think about things more than you might otherwise. After the session, without all the adjustments we discussed, I took 54 seconds off my 25 TT PB with only 3w more power. Thanks Joe and I’m looking forward to seeing how low I can go this season."
BioRacer Aero Optimisation client Neil Crowther March 2017
"Simply Brilliant. The real time data feedback is a great aspect of this system;unlike a conventional wind tunnel you can see how small variations in head and shoulder position may change your frontal area as soon as you make them.Personally I achieved a solid 35-40W improvement over my baseline. The watts per pound in this case is 3, a number that would beat any new frame or disc. Even better is that it’s applicable to every TT’r, triathlete and road racer out there. This is a no brainer for anyone looking to smash old PBs and set a new standard for their racing! "
BioRacer Aero Optimisation client Adrian Lane December 2016
"Having bought a time trial bike I had lots of issues with aches and pains and nearly giving up on the bike thinking I will never complete 112miles it was just too uncomfortable !! So I booked the 14-point bike fit with Joe I must say his knowledge of triathlon is second to none his attention to detail was superb and the adjustments made to the bike made a huge huge difference I have to say that it was worth every penny and on Ironman UK day knocked 2 hours off my PB "

"just a follow up to the recent bike fit at Southfork. I still don't really understand how the down and back on the saddle has worked out so well but it has! Far from wanting to creep forward to the handlebars with the longer stretch I am much more planted than ever before. It feels great. But best of all my chronic back and buttock pain has all but gone. The previous set up was obviously the source of some dodgy movement in my lower back. Maybe I'm riding faster but to be honest that comes second place to having a happy back!

Just writing to thank you so much for the camp last week. Tony and I learnt sooooo much and have returned with lots of ideas and things to do differently. More than that though our motivation is now sky high! We both completed the Warwick Sprint Triathlon on Sunday. We both knocked time off previous event Tony nearly 7 mins and me 11 mins-mostly during the bike We were not sure what to expect on the camp so are delighted with the outcomes and would certainly recommend it to others. Many thanks and best wishes

Please thank all of your team for the professional handling of the tri group last week. Much fun was had but, it was the safety of the riders in the groups that I was particularly pleased with. I was quietly worrying myself to begin with as I just don't trust anyone around me on the road. By the third day I'd forgotten the fear and it was all about hanging on for 'the climb
Dave Lane
Thank you for a great camp! Each year gets better, I don't know how you do it. The balance of training, the great team you have, and the organised talks and advice is just brilliant. The location and sunshine help, I have to say. I am sure we will be making an appearance next year again. :-)

Just a short note to say a huge thanks for coming down and giving the training seminar on Saturday. All the people that I have spoken to, say how much they enjoyed the presentation and what an eye opener it was, it's certainly led to some new thinking!

Tony Rowell, Tri Logic Cornwall.
Thanks for a brilliant day. I've had loads of positive feedback from people at the club. You're relaxed/informal approach worked very well. The day has certainly got people thinking about their training and nutrition - me included. On that note you'll be glad to know that I have stopped buying those nasty Nutrigrain bars and instead stuff my face with the hydrogenated fat free Jordans bars!!! Thanks again for a great day..
Tony Dix, Tri Team Gloucester
Joe, Thank you once again. The feedback from the people that made the time was superb I hope we can continue these sessions as "listening" is the first discipline! ...I have spoken to 6 or so and heard from others and they really took alot from the day and, most of all, enjoyed it.
Leigh Bichard, Tewkesbury Tri Club.
Just a quick note to say thanks for yesterdays training day. There was some really positive feedback from people on the way out and the whole day was pitched at precisely the level we were after. I have to say as a "coach in training", of all of the coaches I have met and listened to, on both coach courses and training days, your method and approach to training has been the closest to the way I would like to develop and it was inspirational for me personally to see what I believe in, put over so well. Thanks again.
