about us: Animis

Hi, we’re Jacqui and Oliver.

We’re a coup of standard Yorkshire folk who love to meet people where they are right now and help them get to where they want to be on the next map point on their fitness journey.

We train the whole athlete. We happily help clients train if they’re competing for world titles, and we’re just as happy training someone to improve their general fitness levels.

We don’t ever use fringe technical language or jargon.

We do this by creating flexible training schedules that suit you and fit around YOUR life, using the the world renowned Trisutto methodology.

But more than that, for us Triathlon coaching is our passion, rather than a job or a chore.


It’s no exaggeration to say that sport is my main passion in life.

However… It became apparent early on, that getting my arms and legs to do what my brain wanted wasn’t always straightforward!

But this turned out to be a good thing, because it made me work harder, and really study the “how” and the “why” of the sports I liked, until I could master them.

Which gave me a deep understanding of sport and stood me in good stead to become a coach.

Back in 2012 I started competing in Triathlons, and it soon became clear that while I love competing for myself, my real love is coaching other people.

So that’s what I did, in 2013 I started training people, and since then I’ve worked my way through various qualifications, culminating in becoming Trisutto certified, and being mentored by the man himself – Brett Sutton.

I’ve also worked as a litigation lawyer, which isn’t as scary as it sounds!

But it has given me a good eye for detail and the ability to really hear what people are saying to me.

In turn, this enables me to structure your training in a way that isn’t just some generic cookie cutter approach, but truly meets you where you are now, and helps you get to be where, ultimately, you want to be,

When I first came into the world of Triathlon, I knew I’d found my “home”.

And while I really enjoy competing as a Great Britain Age Group Athlete, I’m happiest when I’m coaching other people to reach and exceed their own goals.

There really is no feeling like helping someone push through barriers they thought they never could and achieve things they never thought they would.

Having been a Trisutto athlete since 2015, I understand that the real key to success lies in understanding and working WITH my clients.

I endeavour to ensure that my clients have training plans that not only get results, but that they can stick to without burning themselves out.

Afterall, the trick to being a successful triathlete is being able to stay the course, and that means steady, sustainable progress. Because you can’t train if you go off too hard and end up injured can you?

Equally, I know that you can’t commit to training for 6 hours a day 7 days a week – You’ve got a life to live.

So my philosophy centres around not only making you fitter, better and stronger, but I’ll also work closely with you to come up with a schedule that fits around your, already busy, life.
