Triathlon - Run - Strength - Nutrition





SW Sports Performance provides coaching services for triathlon, running, strength training and nutrition advice. Our coaching services are designed for people of all abilities and experience – you don’t have to be an Olympic athlete to benefit! Whether you’re a novice or simply looking to challenge yourself – SW Sports Performance can tailor our programmes to ensure you reach your potential.

Triathlon Coach and Sports Therapist, Sophie Whittingham is passionate about helping people be the best they can be. Through her years of helping clients back into sports after injuries, she is aware of how important it is not to overdo training.

This is an ethos she incorporates into her own triathlon training and coaching and was part of the reason SW Sports Performance was created. To ensure athletes are doing the correct training and not overexerting themselves to the point of injury.

Coaching services are delivered by Sophie and close friends Laura Weightman, Emma Gage, Harriet Ballantyne, Anna Iley and Emma Keeton. Singularly we have all perfected our training specialisms, but collectively we create a bespoke power house of coaching packages for athletes. No matter what you are looking to develop in, each coaching package has been designed by a highly qualified professional.

SW Sports Performance

With SW Sports Performance you receive coaching that has been designed to progress your performance and prevent injury at the same time. We believe that you don’t have to be amazing, but you do need to be in it!

We have all competed as athletes, so we understand what it takes to train this way. We are also highly qualified! Three of us completed the same Sports and Exercise Science degree at Leeds Beckett (formerly Met) University so we have sound knowledge in sports physiology.

Although SW Sports Performance is based in Shropshire, our services can be accessed from anywhere! We have an extremely responsive service and some of our packages enable you to have unlimited access to your coaches in terms of calls and emails. The training plans are made simple and convenient through an online training app. For a specific one on one session, travel is required and will usually be located in the West Midlands, Manchester or the North East.

So if you’re looking to improve your running technique or want training and guidance for your first triathlon – we’d love to help you!

“I do believe since having a structured programme from Sophie, my running technique and speed has greatly improved. I look forward to each training session whether it is indoor or outdoor and hoping for another PB.”
