Mark was a fantastic running coach, who I would recommend without hesitation.

Mark coached me on the beginner’s running program, going from someone unable to run for 2 minutes to being able to run 5k without stopping after 6 weeks. To begin with I was incredibly nervous, but Mark’s energy and enthusiasm immediately put me at ease. It took no time for Mark to get to know everyone personally, and his knowledge and friendly personality made me feel like I was his only client.

Once I was an experienced runner Mark then coached me for a half marathon and then my first ever full marathon. I was so impressed by Mark’s coaching from the beginning, it was completely tailored to me, and he listened to all of my concerns and took them into account. He took the time to catch up with me regularly, always providing valuable insight and guidance. I felt happy to approach Mark with any problems or issues I had, and in turn he was able to put my mind at rest and keep me positive even during very hard training weeks. I never once felt like I was ‘just another client’; Mark always remembered the smallest details about me, and shared my happiness and excitement with everything I achieved.

I would never have expected to be able to complete a marathon, or take 35 minutes off my half marathon time, but thanks to Mark I have achieved so many things I’m immensely proud of. I can’t wait to work with him for my next marathon
