Stuart is lead coach at Accelerate Performance Centre. His areas of expertise include:

  • Endurance coaching
  • Technique and movement pattern development
  • Heart rate training
  • Periodised training plans

Stuart has been coaching athletes for 30 years, and during that period has written articles for many national newspapers and magazines. He has worked with British Triathlon at performance level, as well as working with club runners and triathletes. He spent a period working with the RAF triathlon team, before more recently focusing his experience on running, especially on the fells.

He continues to work with a wide range of athletes, from County and National level champions, through to 8 year olds just beginning their athletic journey, through to 80 year olds aiming to keep moving and healthy.

When he isn’t at Accelerate Performance Centre, Stuart enjoys listening to his ever growing collection of vinyl, drinking good beer, and running the beautiful trails in the Peaks (not all at once, that would be silly!).
