MARK RACHER COACH
My passion for sport stems from a very young age. I was swimming at a professional level from the age of 11 and competing for Team GB over a period of 12 years at a number of European and World Championships. Becoming the British record holder and Britain’s number one for the 200m and 400m individual medley which placed me in the Top 10 world ranking.
During my training as a full-time professional swimmer, I experimented with triathlon as part of a cross-training regime to balance out my training in the water but was never able to dedicate enough time to it due to the number of hours required of me in the pool. When I stopped swimming competitively in late 2003 I made the decision to turn my focus to triathlon and was quickly talent-spotted by the British Triathlon Performance Squad. Through their development programme, I successfully qualified to race as an Elite Athlete and excelled in the long distance events, successfully completing 8 IRONMAN and 20+ HALF IRONMAN races.
On top of my 26 years of experience in the fitness industry, I am also a fully qualified Triathlon Coach, certified by the British Triathlon Federation and a Level 3 Personal Trainer and Strength & Conditioning Coach. My athletes have become World Age Group Champions in both IRONMAN and HALF IRONMAN events, with some going on to become full-time professional triathletes. I firmly believe that with my extensive knowledge and experience in the industry, along with my drive and passion as a coach, I can help you achieve your goals.
