Andy Bullock
Andy's desire, vision and innovation makes him one of the best triathlon coaches you'll find.

Andy started coaching in 2001, and became a full time coach in 2005. His award-winning coaching practices have been developed through vast experience, significant practical application, and an intense desire to learn and develop himself through a full and regular CPD programme. His strong interest in psychology has allowed his natural communication skills and patience to develop into a coaching style that progresses and motivates all the athletes he works with.

His coaching experience is considerable: with well over 10,000 hours of face-to-face coaching across all age ranges - children, young people and adults - in a variety of settings, and across all abilities - from novice to performance athletes such as the South West Regional Academy, medal-winning age-groupers, Hawaii qualifiers and the GB para-triathlon squad.

Andy also knows how to apply his knowledge to a wide range of athletes. His personal and personable approach allows Andy to work with athletes at any level to achieve goals which are challenging and fulfilling. As a full time triathlon coach, any time which he doesn't spend hands-on coaching, he can be found devising periodised, innovative and challenging training programmes or session plans for the athletes he coaches, whether individually, in small groups or at club sessions.

Andy will work with you to not only cross the finish line, but to do it with a smile and your head held high having achieved your dream.
