My name is Jimmy and I am the founder and coach of Endurance Sport Performance.  I am a fanatical runner and also enjoy duathlon and triathlon.  I am a keen cyclist and love speeding around the countryside.  I have personal goals in the marathon, half marathon and duathlon that I am working towards, and I also want to move up to a 70.3 Half Ironman.  In short, I love endurance sport!

I have well over 15 years of PE teaching and coaching experience, working with a large number of athletes.  I have built my knowledge from a life of involvement in sport, as well as my education.  I am a hugely dedicated coach and incredibly proud of my PDGE with Distinction in Physical Education from the University of Edinburgh.  I completed MSc in Strength & Conditioning whilst working as a PE Teacher.  I loved the challenge of studying again in a subject area that I have such interest and passion for.  An MSc with Distinction was the icing on the cake. 

I have a wonderful family and love nothing more than spending time with my wife and daughter.  My daughter had the amazing experience of charging into the Olympic Stadium in 2019 in Amsterdam, to finish the Kids Run.  She loved it and I was an incredibly proud dad!  She is developing a love of sport and has completed lots of other events since that day.


As an athlete and coach, I am dedicated to improving my own performance, and helping others achieve their goals.  I set my marathon PB in Paris 2016 with a time of 2:48, and my half marathon PB came in Edinburgh 2018 with a time of 1:16:06.  One of my proudest moments was completing my 10th "sub 3" hour marathon in Yorkshire 2019.  That is a goal ticked off but there is more to come!

Now in my 40s I am still aiming to get faster, learn more, and improve my own performance as well as my coaching.  Why is that important?  I am always looking for new methods of training to drive performance forward, and experimenting with my own training allows me to have more than just a theoretical understanding of specific sessions.  I will use all of this experience to develop your training and drive your performance forward!
