John the 'Coach'
Although I don't have as much time as I would like to coach it is something I am very passionate about. I still make sure I am involved as I can be with the coaching that RG Active delivers and where possible I will get into my lycra or neoprene and personally deliver sessions to clients. being face to face with clients, helping them achieve, improve and succeed will always be something I love doing!
The role of the sports coach is hugely varied, but it mainly involves:
a) Teaching rules, techniques and tactics to beginners.
b) Providing an objective view to help teams and individuals enhance performance.
c) Helping those involved in top-level sport deal with enormous pressures faced in a highly competitive environment.
Through expert tutoring, constructive criticism, motivation and on-hand support, sports coaches can help individuals focus their minds, hone their bodies and learn their disciplines inside-out to ensure they have the best possible chance of succeeding.
Most professional sportspeople have coaches to help them train and compete - but you don't have to be a professional to have a coach. All you need is a desire either to learn a sport, or to enhance your performance in the sport you already do.
With the growth of triathlon RG Active was set-up to offer specialist triathlon coaching at affordable prices in a relaxed and fun environment.
RG Active currently holds 10-20 triathlon training sessions across the UK every week with some training days/sessions seeing up to 400 people per day.
I really enjoy the coaching which is ultimately why I started business, so I try to be at as many sessions I can whether it be as lead coach or assisting the other RG Active coaches.
I take huge satisfaction is helping the 1000's of triathletes that come to RG Active each year. It is rewarding and inspiring to help people achieve their objectives in a sport that I love.

With triathlon and cycling being described as 'the new Golf' in the corporate world companies are getting teams and employees more involved in sport to motivate them.
In addition to the day of competition RG Active helps these companies train, teach, enthuse, motivate and prepare them for the 'big day'.
We offer a number of corporate packages to help companies make the most from their involvement with the different events across the country, events such as triathlons, duathlons, sportives, running races and more.
On top of the coaching my clothing brand QSW Sports also offers companies bespoke customised clothing to make them look as good as they will be prepared.

On top of the triathlon specific and corporate coaching I still offer 1-2-1 coaching. The 1-2-1 coaching I offer is the more expensive option but this coaching can be tailored to the individuals wants and needs.
This service is available to everyone and anyone looking to get that little bit of special attention on a certain subject fees are agreed on an hourly or day rate.
I really enjoy the 1-2-1 coaching and my services have been called upon by some of the biggest names from the sports world, entertainment industry and the business sector.
I am always learning and improving my skills and qualifications as a coach to keep me up to date and 'current' with the latest developments in sport.
