Natalie George.    Level 1 BTF Coach

 In 2010 I completed my first triathlon a super sprint that I did for charity and my triathlon journey developed from there. I’m not a natural triathlete and have to work hard at all three disciplines but over time my confidence and belief in my abilities has grown from sprints, to Olympic distance, half ironman and then finally to an ironman. In 2019 I become a Level 1 BTF triathlon coach, it’s been so rewarding to see club members grown in their ability and confidence. It’s been great to be involved in FTC as a coach and see the club grow and the achievements of its members.

Christian Coates.    Level 2 BTF Coach

My first triathlon was in Midsomer Norton eleven years ago, when I didn’t even have my own bike! I borrowed a friend’s bike to do some training, but whilst training I got hit by a car. Despite that, I was hooked. I love the feeling afterwards when I know I’ve done well! I forgot my race shoes for one event, so I ran and cycled in my trainers. I ripped the trainers and my feet to shreds, but I did still manage to finish the event. The mental aspect is so important – you have to believe that you can do it.
