I received this testimonial recently

One of the best aspects of coaching is that as well as helping athletes achieve goals that may have felt out of reach I occasionally receive feedback emails like this.

I teamed up with Chris early in 2014, following two previous coaching experiences which were blighted by poor communication and late delivery of training plans. No such issues with Chris – communication was excellent, as one would hope, with high quality training plans consistently delivered on time and feedback likewise. In one season my 10 mile PB was cut by nearly 90 seconds – 21:43 in 2014, to 20:27 in 2015 (same course), 25 mile by nearly 150 seconds – 54:20 in 2014, to 52:43 in 2015 (same course), so the training was clearly very effective.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris as a coach for the aspiring time-trialist – in fact I’m sure we’ll speak again one day if and when I think more seriously about delving into the world of triathlon. I’ll always owe a thanks to Chris @ VerinesVelo.com and look forward to a spin (and a pizza in his homemade outdoor oven!) in the French countryside one day soon.
