Success in the sport is, above all else,
about enduring suffering.

    Trevor is a truly dedicated Coach, whose knowledge, skill and versatility have been essential to me in preparing for some extremely physical challenges and expeditions. His ability to make training fun and interesting, whilst keeping physical goals achievable and relevant make him a real pleasure to work with.

  • Lauren Steadman

    ITU Paratriathlon World Champion

    Being coached by Trev over the last 2 years has helped me grow as an athlete and as a person, because his ability to diagnose my physical and psychological limiters is in my opinion second to none! His highly enthusiastic, focused and driven nature provided me with a source of information and motivation which enabled me to fulfil my goal to become an ITU world champion.

  • Emma Gueterbock

    GB Age group Triathlete

    I have really enjoyed training with Trevor. His programmes are very varied but also include those all-important repeated sessions showing tangible progression to keep motivation high. He has pushed me hard at times but this has given me the confidence to set higher goals for myself in the coming season. Trevor understands the time constraints of family commitments that come with being an age-grouper. He is also happy to offer lots of practical advice on nutrition, race day preps, and in particular on improving range of movement.

Interview - Assessment

Before an athlete can begin a coaching proramme an interview or
assessment must be arranged with Zone6 Coaching.

  • Workout design and modelling, dry land training, nutrition
  • Cognitive skills training and life/work balance

Sessions begin with a thorough personal evaluation designed to identify the athlete’s unique strengths, goals, motivations and any past or present physiological problems/injuries.


Full Body Biomechanical Assessment

A full physical evaluation including muscle testing. This will provide the athlete with a blueprint or road map to show where they are now in order to determine which direction a training programme needs to take.


  • Includes functional mobility, flexibility, strength assessment
  • Written summary of session is provided
  • Video of session (Assessment, technique and exercises)
  • Dry land exercise recommendations provided
  • Reviewed every 4 months

Without adequate mobility to perform
essential movements, the quick result will be injury
