Tony has been coaching me for a number of months now. The programme he has developed for me is focused on delivering podium finishes at Scottish, British and International level in my Age Group.
First up was the Scottish Sprint Triathlon championships which got me on the top step of the podium. Tony is very approachable, and quickly modifies and improves the programme as required after regular feedback sessions and he is very quick to respond to specific questions, queries and required updates via Training Peaks and Messenger.
I would recommend Ochil Coaching if you want a personal programme to take you to whichever goal you have in mind next.
For years I have been striving to organise my training and recovery time within a very busy life and like most triathletes I know I haven't always managed this well. As an English teacher I have also never really been analytical about the data from training sessions but Tony and the OC Team have introduced new ways of increasing my knowledge to enhance my performance.
A bespoke, balanced approach has enabled me to achieve personal targets and I have experienced more sustainable results. Progression was always boom or bust but the clear approaches to planning with a focus on active recovery and incorporating that into my overall training plan has really helped.
I'd recommend the OC team as they considered my current considerable life commitments and created sessions that I could manage without burning out by the end of the week. They are a professional team with a personal touch.
Tony has been coaching me since Summer 2021 and has played a big part in the rehab and recovery of a broken ankle I sustained in the Spring.
The upshot of the injury was the detection of anaemia, probably due to women’s health - Tony is hugely supportive and mindful of this and the injury and has really helped to adapt my training accordingly.
Tony touches base regularly and is extremely approachable. His training sessions are varied, focused and really enjoyable. He’s hoping to train me up for something big in 2022…but first we’re setting our sights on being able to run a cheeky 5k!
Ochil Coaching has had such a positive impact on the way I now train so I would definitely recommend it.
I have participated in a couple of big events but have usually just winged it re training. However, after signing up for a “character building” event, I decided I needed the right guidance and help. Basically I just wanted to be told what to do to get me to the finish line and hopefully enjoy it a bit along the way.
I approached Tony for a chat and was convinced that he could deliver on this and so far so good. I’ve never been one for technology and using the data generated from heart rate, watts etc, but the testing we have done and the feedback I’ve been given has really instilled the confidence that yeah I can do it and I can see the benefit of collecting and using this data.
Tony has been really good with adapting my training plans to my schedule and it just really works for me. His enthusiasm and commitment is definitely a motivator and I would recommend Ochil Coaching to anyone looking for some help and structure with their training.
I started working with Tony at the start of 2022 with the aim of getting more structure into my training and aiming to improve and step up to 70.3 distance in my first full year back after a few years away from the sport.
Having a young family and a busy work life, the structured training plan that Tony put together was clear and easy to follow meaning that it never felt like a chore (even in the Scottish weather)! Each session had a clear aim and was part of a overarching structure that built well towards the ‘A’ races.
Tony is very knowledgeable, helpful and speaks from experience. The training plan was extremely personalised; all of this has resulted in a PB at each of my triathlons and running races this season! I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to improve and get consistency in their training.
