The Team

John McAvoy is currently the only Nike sponsored triathlete in the world however he was previously a high profile armed robber who has found redemption through the power of sport. Having broken both British and World records whilst in prison he is now forging a new life as an endurance athlete and speaker who is committed to using his story of rehabilitation to help and inspire others to change their lives for the better.

Keith Sanders

Perform Fitness

Keith of Perform Fitness has worked with John since 2014. Johns previous, physical progression had been self driven but it was clear that there was a world of knowledge that could be tapped into with the right coach. After initial discussions John was convinced that Keith and his support team could offer the required training specificity and structure to help him push forward and make the most of his athletic potential.

Terry Williamson

In Search of Brilliance

Terry and John met whilst John was still in prison and on day release at a local gym. John was always looking for any edge he could gain and initially worked with Terry on some of the psychological and mental aspects of performance for the upcoming European Indoor Rowing Championships. A resulting Bronze medal was just the beginning and now they are great friends. Terry continues to support John in his athletic pursuits and they work closely together to help and inspire others to change their lives for the better.

Alex des Monstiers

Osteopath

Alex has worked with John for the last few years and his magic hands help keep him in top shape and injury free. When you train hard for endurance events the accumulative effects on the body can be devastating and the work Alex does is invaluable over a long season.

  • My favourite part of @ironmantri is running the marathon. This day at IM Frankfurt was the closest I’ve come to achieving one of my sports goals of running a sub 3 hour marathon off the bike alongside French 🇫🇷 Pro Vincent. It was on until 20 miles when I stoped for the toilet and just couldn’t get my legs back on the running spilt I needed. In 6 weeks time at Ironman Hamburg I’m going to have a good crack at it again. #run #runner #loverunning #running #marathon #ironman #ironmantri #swimbikerun #fit #fitness #imhamburg #germany #sports #sport #ilovesport
