Contact Details:


Rod does not run a commercial coaching service, he offers free of charge group sessions in Abu Dhabi for all disciplines of Triathlon, including Transition training. The sessions are normally held from October through to mid March each year, and are advertised on the Triathlon Abu Dhabi FB page. However, you can contact him directly.

The sessions are usually targeted to those new to Triathlon, or those who have specific anxieties about a particular discipline of Triathlon. As well as Triathlon “newbies”, attendees often include those who have entered several Triathlons, but have been self taught and are looking for some experienced assistance.

The coaching approach is a friendly and welcoming one, taking in to consideration all abilities.

When not in Abu Dhabi, Rod coaches in the UK and France.
