Case Study

Suzanne Gray

I have been coached by Phil for nearly 18 months and have achieved all my goals with his help and expertise. I can’t speak highly enough of his skill, dedication and professionalism. Phil not only provides excellent coaching on the physical aspect but also gives nutritional advice and gets to know you as a person so he can taylor your plan specifically for your individual needs. This includes physical, psychological and emotional support…all of which are sometimes necessary in achieving whatever goals you may have. I ran my first marathon and then went on to complete a full ironman under Phil’s guidance and what’s more I achieved a time I thought I could only dream of so was totally overwhelmed by what I had accomplished. I managed to overcome many obstacles in achieving the ironman…one of the main ones being open water sea swimming. I went from being rescued from a lake with serious breathing issues resulting in a dnf…to swimming 3.8k in the sea with a pb quicker than in the pool! Despite having the hardest year of my life due to personal reasons, training with Phil for the Ironman certainly proved to me I was strong physically and mentally. Phil believed in me 100% and gave me all the advice and help I needed to enable me to fulfil my goals. I would recommend Phil 100% to anyone and have thoroughly enjoyed the whole Ironman experience from start to finish.
