Sports Coaching & Personal Training with Dai Richards

You are different, I am different, we are all individuals, even twins, one will beat the other in a race or game which is why each person's training programme should be different. I've coached myself in triathlon from day 1, my personal philosophy is simple, train to your weakness, race to your strengths, that's not to say you should ignore your strengths. When I entered multi-sport/triathlon in 1985 I came from a running background, my swimming was absolutely rubbish. I worked on it showing a gradual improvement each year. In the year 2000 I exited the water amongst the top ten swimmers in the World Quadrathlon championships. This allowed me to race to my strengths later on in the bike and the run, I finished 8th overall and winning the veteran's title. But that's just me ! Everyone is different and it's discovering what makes each individual perform to the best of their ability, then putting together a training programme that is specific to that person is what my coaching is all about.
