Garth Fox - Scientific Performance Coaching
Scientific Performance Coaching

"Some people when they reach 80 start playing cards, not me. I can?t keep still. My advice to anyone, young or old, is keep moving. I do physical exercise everyday" - Robert Marchand - First ever 100 year old cyclist to set the hour record (24.251 km/h)

“Improving the physical condition of an athlete will always be as much about experience, feel and intuition as it is about scientific certainty. As long as a human being is at the centre of the complex system that is training load, recovery and adaptation, then sports science can only ever be a tool to help the coach lead the athlete down the right path. But what a tool.”

What is Sports Science?

Sports science is an emerging discipline which applies scientific principles to understand factors associated with sporting performance or health and well-being. These may incorporate areas of physiology, psychology, motor control, bio-mechanics, nutrition, sports technology, anthropometry, kinanthropometry and performance analysis. The correct and timely application of which will improve your health and performance no matter how good or bad it is currently.

Sports Science Services

The sports science services we offer are about taking the valuable lessons learnt in laboratories and transferring those skills to the training and racing environment. in a word, it is about 'specificity'. This means measuring, analysing and preparing for the conditions you will face in your chosen event or race in the most specific way possible. after all, those events we all love to compete in are not held in urban laboratories but in parks, forests lakes and mountains - prepare for your success accordingly.

  • 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.
