Woburn Coaching was founded on the basis that sport should always be fun, and that we all have goals in life and in our sport. We love to help athletes towards those goals, but it’s vital that you enjoy the training and the activity along the way.


All our coaching is tailored to you, with bespoke training plans, regular review meetings, and constant communication. Whether you want to work on sporting technique, general fitness, or both, we will design a programme to fit your needs. 



Gareth Allen
Gareth is a Level 3 British Triathlon Coach, and also holds qualifications from British Cycling, Cycling UK and England Athletics. He has been competing in triathlon since 2004, and enjoys ultra long distance events. 

Zoe Smith
Zoe is a Level 2 British Triathlon Coach. She came into triathlon in 2012 after spending the previous ten years running marathons. After completing several long distance triathlons, she is now focused on shorter events, and is a GB Age Group duathlete.

Gareth and Zoe have plenty of knowledge and experience, but more importantly they love the sport, they love helping people to enjoy triathlon, and to get more out of their training. They are both seasoned triathletes in their own right, and have worked with a huge range of athletes, including international triathletes and complete beginners.

Andy Donnelly

Andy started his triathlon career with a super sprint in 2015. Since then, he has increased his fitness and improved his technique incredibly. He is currently training for the Outlaw Half in May 2017.

"Gareth has delivered a solid structure with focus to my plan, with adaptation to suit circumstances. Without him I would not have reached my goals and have the confidence to push them even further."


Helen Walker

Helen has been a triathlete for two years, and has completed a handful of Sprints and a couple of Olympic Distance races. She's currently focusing on her first Middle Distance race in 2017. 

“Thank you so much Gareth and Zoe. You have pushed me to my limits and helped me achieve so much more than I thought I could after some time off. My triathlon mojo has been restored.”

Sarah Hennessy

Sarah has gone from absolute beginner to seasoned athlete in just two years. She is now training to run a marathon, and was recently crowned Wakefield Triathlon Club's Most Improved Triathlete 2016. 

“Gareth and Zoe did a great job, encouraging us to push hard with their usual sense of fun. Also, the workshops were a great opportunity to think through our goals for the coming year.”
