Our club caters for all abilities of triathletes from beginner to professional athletes and all ages. Optima Racing Team’s set up offers the most comprehensive coaching system for age group athletes in the country. Our Head Coach is James Beckinsale who is BTA L3 qualified with over 15 years triathlon coaching experience. James is also the London Region Academy Coach.
Optima Racing Team, in contrast to many of the club environments found elsewhere, was set up so that athlete numbers are kept at a level where coaching can be delivered effectively both at a team and individual level, providing a platform for each athlete’s development to be optimised.
We train in Kew at our very own gym and also in Chiswick, Barnes and Richmond Park. Our gym offers our junior team a unique, safe environment for them to be coached.
