“Even though Coach Parry coaches loads of athletes, he makes you feel like you’re his only athlete. It’s in the way he speaks to you, treats you and how he structures your training program to exactly what you need.”

“I do a lot of travelling for work and Coach Parry is able to adjust my training according to my schedule. Whether I’m running on a treadmill, cross training or running in the freezing cold, Coach Parry makes my training work in my busy life.”

“I like the one on one feedback through Training Peaks. Coach Parry gives me feedback on each one of my runs and how I am progressing. The feedback is excellent compared to just looking at an app that gives you feedback that you can’t really compute. Coach Parry takes it a step further and tells you how to adjust your training accordingly.”

“Moving to Coach Parry has had a massive impact on my performance. After a few months of training with him and less racing than I was used to, I ran my best time over 10km – smashing my PB by 30 seconds and running a 32:20 – equalling Zola Budd’s personal best.”

 “Coach Parry is fantastic in the way that he is constantly looking for ways to improve the performance of an athlete. His understanding of the athlete’s physiology is exceptional and he is always able to relate to and advise me whenever I have an issue. Coach Parry isn’t scared to make sacrifices for an athlete which is a very rare quality in a coach.”
