In 2004 he bought an Endless Pool and started coaching Evesham Swimming Club members and teaching his daughters school friends how to swim and improve their stroke. Over time, more and more high level swimmers came to benefit from Richard’s unique ability to instantly see faults and create a mental model of how to correct it, by making small but highly effective adjustments to swimming technique.
Richard’s understanding of hydro-dynamics has allowed him to take the same ethos into correcting the body position on a bike for aero-dynamics. His excellent knowledge of exercise physiology enables Goode2Tri to create very effective training programmes such as the 24 Session Watt Bike programme which has proved unbelievably successful.
Richard invests in the latest sports training technology, and has two state-of-the-art altitude simulators which enable athletes to improve performance considerably.
Over the years, Richard has coached many athletes who have achieved considerable successes including:
- Harry Ackland – World Schools Record Holder, 200m Breaststroke
- Harry Bamforth – Welsh National Champion 1500m Freestyle
- Alex Doherty – 2018 World & British Duathlon Champion, 2019 European Duathlon Champion, 2019 British Duathlon Championships Bronze
