John Wood

I’m John and I’ve been coaching in some form for 20 years! I started coaching swimming at the age of 16 and got my triathlon coaching qualifications back in 2011 – before becoming a full-time triathlon and swimming coach in March 2014. It’s not something I ever expected to do full time having done a degree in Sports Engineering at Bath University – but helping people achieve their goals and push their limits definitely gets me up in the morning. 


I’ve been fortunate to work with thousands of athletes, from complete beginners and those scared of the water up to elites. My first ever swim client was a 65-year-old man who was scared of the water but wanted to swim so he could go in the water with his partner on a cruise! Equally fortunate, I worked with Olympic silver medal winner Siobhan Marie O’Connor as a junior and helped coachParatriathlete Andy Lewis toward his triathlon gold medal in Rio.
