After training with, being coached by, travelling alongside and competing in the same Ironman (Italy 2018), I can’t praise Leszek highly enough for his knowledge of coaching and competing in the triathlon.

I am running better!

Thank you for a fantastic session tonight – my legs definitely know they’ve been working!! Even after that one session, my running technique was so much smoother. I never really had a ‘technique’ before now but you gave me lots of very simple, easy to adopt tips. Using my arms better (behind) was definitely useful […]

My first Ironman – Barbara’s successful story.

I had the pleasure to train alongside Leszek for my first Ironman. Leszek has a genuine interest in the sport, in getting people involved and succeeding.

The day after the race. Ironman Italy 2018

I’m looking for words to describe this annoying feeling, this strange sense of underachievement, of not getting what I have planned, of not doing I was expecting myself being able to.  It sits right under my skin, scratching, boiling, it can bubble out any moment. Was my expectation too high?
