Description of Annie Emmerson
I've been involved in triathlon for over 20 years - 12 years as an athlete and now over 8 years coaching. I was coached by Trisutto.com Head Coach Brett Sutton for the last 4 years of my career. In that time I won medals at World and European Championships and also raced on the World Half Marathon team for GB. My career was diverse as I competed in duathlon, long and short course, triathlon, Olympic distance up to half-Ironman, and I also competed for Great Britain as a runner. I have coached some amazing athletes over the last few years including a World Champion duathlete, Kona qualifiers and mulitple World Championship GB age-group athletes. My athletes have ranged from teenagers right up to a 72 year-old-female athlete who still competes over the Ironman distance! I look forward to helping you achieve your goals soon.
Why do you work with Trisutto?
Training at the top for ten years under a number of the world’s leading coaches, including Brett Sutton, has given me a profound insight into the mental and physical attributes needed to perform to the best of one’s ability. I use my experience to coach athletes with varying abilities and aspirations to help them achieve their sporting goals. Whether it’s advising three-time Olympic gold medalist James Cracknell in his quest to break the Olympic distance two-hour barrier or helping an enthusiastic age-grouper get the best out of the limited training time available to them, I understand how to balance a busy lifestyle with the physical demands of training.
