Simon Ward is the founder and co-owner of TheTriathlonCoach.com (with Jack Maitland)
He began the tri-coaching journey back in 1995 when personal training clients asked him to help them complete their first triathlon.
At the time there were very few triathlon coaches and no formal coach education programme in the UK.
As soon as the then BTA offered the L2 award (and subsequently L3) Simon applied, studied and qualified as one of the UK’s first L3 triathlon coaches.
Since that time he has gone on to become the leading tutor for British Triathlon, writing and delivering much of the current L3 course.
