Welcome to my website.

This is where you can find information about my bespoke coaching packages for individuals, group and individual coaching workshops, some of the achievements of the athletes I coach, and about my own training and racing.

About

My name is Ian Blackie-Taylor and I am an endurance sport coach based in Cornwall. If you are looking for someone to encourage and help you achieve your personal goals, look no further.


I have been coaching for a number of years and focus on meeting the particular needs of my clients. My coaching philosophy is based on a holistic approach to develop, enable and equip my athlete/rider to become independent. What they learn during the process should have changing effects throughout their life.

This is achieved through a balance of communication and understanding  that each athlete is unique. This is further enhanced by a range of professional qualifications and over 28 years of experience in triathlon, cycle and multi-sport.

I have raced triathlon at all distances from Sprint to Iron distance both in UK and internationally. I have  been selected and competed for the GB Age Group at  Standard, Long Distance and Cross Tri as well as competing at the Xterra World Championships.  I have competed in criterium’s, MTB races as well as long distance sportive events both in UK and Europe.

Whether your desire is to simply get fit, to train for your first triathlon or cycle sportive or prepare for a racing season, Ironman or multi-day event, I can put together a customised training programme for you so we can reach your goals together.

Training Camps

Late April 2019 Galicia Northern Spain – Training Camp

Another secret training location and following.   I am planning to run a small training camp in late April to coincide with the ITU Multisport week.  

There will be the opportunity for athletes to either enter one of the races in the open category or take time out to experience and soak up the racing vibe at this level


The camp is for up to 4 athletes.

The camp has up to 12 coached sessions (2 coached main sessions per day plus 1 Strength & Conditioning session each day) all for a value for money coaching fee per athlete for the week.


Flight to Porto and accommodation costs and any other information can be advised if you are interested.
