What Do The Athletes Say


“Having completed the Dubai 70.3 Iron Man in February, I said “never again”. 4 weeks later I signed up

for the KMD Copenhagen Full Iron Man, without a plan on how to step up to double the distance with

less than 6 months to the race, despite having a full time job, busy travel schedule and family at home.

1 coffee with coach Matt Dewhurst and the plan was in motion. Matt devised a program around my

busy schedule, using an fitness app to schedule, monitor and review progress based around the

Triathlon disciplines as well as spending time in the gym focusing on strength & conditioning work not

only for muscle development but injury prevention.

Matt is a committed coach with an passion for sport, training and coaching others. He is disciplined, and

hungry to get better. More importantly, he instils these same qualities in the athletes he coaches. Matt

gave me the confidence and reassured me, during those 6 months, that I will make it, despite some

confidence doubts from my side about my lack of distance sets in training during a busy travel periods.

His knowledge on training schedules, training sets and rest helped me conquer the full IM event, which I

thought was impossible at my stage in life.

Having never cycled 180Km and Ran a marathon, let alone together in 1 event, due to having several

injuries in years gone by, I managed to finish pain free and over an hour before my devised target time.

Crossing the line was a different experience than the 70.3, several months before. Same elation for the

effort and accomplishment but this time with the immediate thought of doing it all over again…..where I

will look forward to working with Matt going forward.

“It can be done….Its whether you want it enough, to get it done”…
