Dermot Connolly
Irish AG Champion
"Paddy was a coach on a warm weather training camp I attended a few years ago. When I decided to jump up from 70.3 to Full Ironman distance I decided to seek out Paddys coaching services. He has also helped me set PBs and medal in National Championships, Triathlon Irelands National Series and Ironman Dun Laoighaire 70.3. He is knowledgeable, understanding and realistic. He provides a customised training plan to suit your lifestyle, work and ability. I highly recommend Paddy to athletes of all abilities"

His planning and communication strategies ensure that maximum benefits are gained from whatever training time is available. I cannot recommend Podium Fit enough to anyone wanting to finish an endurance event or improve their racing performance..”

“Paddy & Podiumfit has helped me to fulfil my potential as an elite athlete. From bike fitting to season planning Paddy is able to take care of the small margins that I often over look, ensuring I can get the most out of my body at the tmes it matters the most.”
Luke Mc Carron
Top Level Irish Triathlete
“ Paddy is an inspiring and enthusiastic coach! As an accomplished triathlete himself, he leads by example and motivates his athletes to progress and perform to the best of their ability. I joined Podiumfit as an injured club runner, novice cyclist and nervous swimmer. By following Paddy’s highly individualised, progressive, structured training plans I have been able to build the skills and confidence to enable me to achieve a marathon pb, complete a ½ Ironman and compete in a 5km open water swim. Not bad progress for one year! Thanks Paddy.”
Jenny Elliott York
Runner & Triathlete
“I've been with Paddy for 4 years & found him to be a very personable, straight talking and patient coach. His vast experience covers everything from nutrition to injury treatment and goal setting. My plans are individual to me, and as I work unpredictable hours he has been great at adjusting sessions to suit my time constraints. Most importantly he has helped me complete races I never thought possible & have total confidence in him getting me ready for future races.”
