"The facts, numbers and concepts inherent in the world of sport and exercise science can appear pretty complex, confusing and frankly, contradictory to many. If I can yank back the curtain on some of that and show you the workings, then so much the better."

How To Eat Right The September issue of TIME magazine featured a superb article by Dr. Mehmet Oz, the practicing heart surgeon and US TV host.

Vitamin D deficiency. Does D stand for 'die early'?
Vitamin D is good for strong bones and teeth, right? And anyway you get it from the sun so what is there to think about?

So you've invested in some tri bars for your bike? Great! All you need to do now is get nice and low at the front so that your chin’s almost scraping on the road and before you know it you’ll be slashing minutes off your triathlon times, all because you create less drag. So clip them on and let’s get flying, I hear ... Read more >

Polarised Training. The best endurance athletes in the world do it, shouldn't we?
According to Albert Einstein, the definition of insanity is ‘doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. As a triathlete, you need to ask yourself this question: is the time and effort I spend training really giving me the results I deserve? If the answer is no, then you are probably trai...

The 10 Laws of Endurance Training
1. Train Frequently, All Year-Round The human body thrives on physical activity. Little and often always outweighs heavy training sessions interspersed by lots of days off. Our physiological systems adapt to the stress placed upon them consistently not sporadically. New or improved movement patterns are engrained by d... Read more >

The Importance of Regular Fitness Testing for Triathletes.
There is an old adage in business that goes: “You can’t improve what you don’t measure.” I believe it applies to triathlon too, where people are often guilty of training for months on end without ever really knowing if they’re improving. This is where fitness testing comes in. Read the full article >... Read more >

Building base fitness. How to do it right.
The off-season is here and you can look at it in two ways: miserable weather, dark evenings and slippery roads, or a chance to reinvent yourself as a triathlete.

  • When I met Garth in 2013, in my late 40s, I was already in reasonable shape. Or so I thought! The programmes Garth has set for me have coaxed me along to a much higher fitness level.

  • Hi Garth
    Many thanks for a truly memorable weekend. The training, teaching and experience was fantastic: I was still reliving some of those climbs on the plane home! It was also great to meet your lovely family.
    Thank you again and I can’t wait to get back down for another weekend of precision training.

    David Persaud, London May 2015

  • I was fairly new to cycling. I loved it, but felt like I had reached a plateau - I was suffering from frequent illness and injury, I didn't see much reward out for the extra effort in, and consequently my motivation was starting to falter. By good fortune, the gurus at Cyclefit recommended Garth Fox - and I haven't looked back since.

  • {Garth is} a man of integrity, who seems to be driven by nothing more than a desire to help others to achieve their dreams - be these to finish a sprint triathlon, or to qualify for Kona - Garth will be at your side (sometimes literally!) every step of your journey. You're in safe hands.

  • My goal after having two children was to get back to at least the level of 10k running performance I was at before having children, which was 50 mins. Under Garth's highly professional guidance I recently managed a time of 45 mins and came 6th in my age group! I am ecstatic and have already set my sights on a triathlon next year. As Garth always tells me, the limits are only where you set them. Thankyou!

  • Garth's enthusiasm for endurance sports physiology seemingly knows no bounds. He has a great understanding of the human body and how it responds to rest and training. He's also one of those rare people who have both communication and analytical skills, when most people only have one or the other.

    Phil Mosley - Elite Triathlete & Coaching Editor of Triathlon Plus magazine

  • Garth really knows how to connect the dots between training and performance. His enormous expertise in physiology and sports science makes his training interventions very perceptive and his ability to tease out the precise adaptations required for the desired improvement in performance with different training stimuli is uncanny.
