I started using Kevin @ Blackzone Coaching in January 2023. I’ve had a few coaches before, but for varying reasons, I was not compelled to stick with them.

Kevin has completely transformed my training, and in turn my racing ability. I started racing 70.3 events in 2018 and have consistently pulled in results putting me in the top half of the top ten in my age group. I challenged Kevin with top 5 with the real target being the Podium.

 

I have had 2 races this season (2023), and in both I have come away with significant PB’s (both sub 5:30 which was previously a dream) in a very competitive field. I will update this review once I’ve had my final race of the season in September!

Race 1 – Outlaw Nottingham – I placed 8th/68 – not the place I wanted but considering the competition and my finish time I was very happy indeed.

Race 2 – Outlaw Holkham – I placed 5th/38 – far better placing and even better finish time.

 

Kevin is dedicated to working with his athletes to help them achieve their goals. My run at Nottingham improved by circa 10 minutes, which is something we have really been focusing on as running off the bike was always my weak spot.

I wont be changing coaches any time soon – this is a long term project and I would highly recommend Kevin whatever your goals.
