Giorgio Vittori - British Triathlon Coach

Mark Hyde - Evo Cycling Coach

A semi professional career as a goalkeeper with a raft of local teams underpins Marks sporting achievements from the earlier part of his life and helped to develop his strong work ethic and mental discipline.

The perfect ingredients to go on and qualify for 7 Triathlon World Championships including Edmonton, Cancun and Hawaii as well as representing Great Britain! For Mark, triathlon offers a total physical challenge which brings fulfilment and satisfaction (also the opportunity to show off his all year tan in lycra) as well as that adrenaline buzz that lasts and lasts!

He brings that commitment, energy and enthusiasm into the training sessions and as a cycling coach his style has a team focus... that might sound odd for something that is an individual sport but Mark believes that in training when we all pull together and support each other as part of a team then we build our own individual capabilities even more.

Despite the strong work ethic (or perhaps because of it) Mark is equally committed to having a laugh, enjoying good food and the 'occasional' beer and has been known to come first in a triathlon after some serious nights out!

Peter Huber - Evo Swimming Coach

Started swimming when I was 4 years old, and quickly started competing and by the time I was 11 years old I had it to the Junior South African team.

I turned professional at 14 years old. Was aiming to go to the Olympics at 15 years old, but had no money at the time.

Carried on with the swimming until I went to uni when I then started to combine running and cycling to end triathlons. I came to England in 2009 and started competing and winning a few medals and trophies.

Alan Ellis - Evo Swimming Coach

From swimming the Channel to completing your first length in the pool, Alan coaches people at all levels. He has been an integral part of the club since it first started and continues to build swimmer's confidence and ability.

With 30 years of coaching experience, Alan definitely has what it takes to improve your swimming.

Sean Hayhow - Open Water Swimming Coach

It all started with him looking in the mirror in 1992 and thinking what a chubbsta! Now 16 years later he has been competing in the sport of Triathlon racing all over the world and meeting fantastic inspirational people.

The sport has taken him to amazing highs from his very first 'Try a Tri' to the Ironman. In those 16 years he has competed in 14 Ironman and Long Distance events, 16 Half Ironman, 5 Powerman Duathlons and 100's of triathlon culminating in representing Great Britain in 7 world and European Championships with a 4th place finish being his best placing.

His inspiration was to see a disabled athlete from America called Randy Cadell who hand powered his way around the entire Lanzarote Ironman course... for him this was amazing and made him feel as an able body athlete very humble... so he does this so he can meet and be inspired by these kind of people.

He wants to be able to pass on all his years of knowledge and help inspire those that may one day get the same feelings out of the sport that he has.

Video swim analysis, stroke correction, transistion training, training programmes as well as running and cycling coaching can be tailored to your individual needs - contact Kevin Wallace, Evolution Coaching on 0778 099 4772 or email kevin@evo-pt.co.uk
