ABOUT US

Headed by Paul Gardner, we are about passion in triathlon; athlete focus and creating an environment where we and our athletes can personally excel - doing what we love, in the time we have, with the work life balance we want.  We know that not all athletes have the same goals, but our approach is geared for all, to make the best of what you've got, and maybe show you that's more than you think

We understand what it takes to achieve your potential, goals and personal bests. We train scientifically, personalised, measurably and with spirit.  We love to race; it is one of the reasons we train. Our race team are friends, confidants, competitors, supporters and better athletes for it.  

We work with self-motivated athletes, from sprint to Ironman distance, the youngest is 17 and the oldest is 67; no matter our achievements we never forget our humble beginnings

Scott, Sprint

From a complete newbie I can't believe how quickly I've transitioned onto a regular top 10 AG finisher - GB Age Group is calling

Rebecca, IM & GB Sprint

I cannot speak highly enough of Paul's coaching in the water, I learnt more in one hour about swimming easy and fast than I thought possible, I've gone from 16 minutes for 750m to 11.30!"

Vikki, GB Sprint & Olympic

Triathlon wasn't even on my radar when I started with Lovetri, but since starting with Paul I've gone from novice to regular top 10 finisher, and  representing GB AG in Triathlon and Duathlon, coming 10th at the Worlds Champs in Penticton Canada this month

Sian, GB Sprint & Olympic

I just wanted to say a big thank you to Paul Gardner....my run V02 Max is up, I'm a whole bike zone faster than when I started with him 4 months ago and I've qualified for the Worlds next year, as well as meeting my partner on the Lovetri training camp in Lanza last year!

Rich, Ironman & Ultra

Its the day after one of the toughest physical challenges I've ever done, so Thank you to Paul Gardner for his introduction into this mad sport, and for his advice, coaching and support over the last 5 years, oh yeah, and the loan of my first bike!

Kevin, Bronze Sprint Worlds

I trained with Lovetri and Paul during the 2017 season where I managed a bronze sprint medal at the Nationals  followed up by a bronze at the World Sprint Championships in Rotterdam 

 

Colin, Olympic and IM

Cheers Paul, awesome results over the past couple of years, thank you, now to work out what's next!

George, Sprint and IM 2018

I really want to thank you for all your fantastic work to date. The improvements I've seen this year go far beyond any I've experienced previously. I really really enjoy the training too (although sometimes not during!).

Heather, Aquathlete

Thanks for all the swim focus on the plan recently, I was 7th out of the water, second female and first AG, brilliant!
