Barney Testimonials


“Barney has been coaching me for 3 years now. He’s coached me to perform in Time Trials, Road Races, cyclo-cross and endurance events like the Etape du Tour and 3 Peaks Cyclocross Race.
Because of my job I need a coach who can be flexible with my training plan when I have to work away at short notice. Barney is always available to chat through any changes needed and to be creative when time is limited! He also listens to my ideas and gives me his thoughts.
Barney has also helped rebuild my fitness and confidence during a period of mental and physical ill health. It was really important at that time that I had a good balance to rebuild at the right speed and also enjoy what I was doing. The right balance between structure and ‘fun’ was key and Barney spent a lot of time with me making sure that was right, that the training was working and that the workload was at the right level.”

“Inspirational, dynamic and very professional. Sarah and Barney connected perfectly with their audience. An awards evening is made by the quality of the guest speakers / presenters and we think that this was our best so far. I know our students felt proud and honoured to have their awards presented by Sarah and Barney. Thank you.”

“Many, many thanks to you and Barney for making our Conference so special.

Not only was your talk very inspiring but the way that you chatted to everyone and signed autographs and had photos taken with them, made the day.”
