Paddy

Having discovered a passion for supporting others with their training goals as a Personal Trainer, Paddy was
soon looking for ways to help people that went beyond the normal approach.
Paddy’s area of expertise comes within Strength Training. He has a breadth of knowledge and is eager to share
and put this into practice when coaching the wide variety of athletes he provides support to from endurance to
team sport athletes of all ages and levels.
Being calm and patient are among Paddy’s greatest assets. He immerses himself into his athlete’s journeys
ensuring they have his full support and are well prepared to take on their endeavours. In recent years, Paddy has
become more interested in biomechanics and movement patterns of the body and how they relate to specific
sports and exercise. A greater understanding of heart rate training and periodisation has also been developed under the guidance
of Stuart.

Paddy continues to run and train to a high standard. He is coached by Stuart and is an active member of Team Accelerate.
Both Paddy and Stuart work closely together to help athletes develop, so combing their skill sets for better outcomes.
