About us

Resilient was founded in 2017 with the aim of bringing together psychology and endurance sports. We offer coaching, courses and education around sport psychology, triathlon and endurance. If you want to push your limits and achieve new PBs, or just use endurance sport to improve your mental health, we're here to help.

Our values

Focus on wellbeing. We are wellbeing-first rather than performance-first. Being active is an essential part of our mental health and sport should support this rather than detract from it.

Psychology-first approach. Many training programmes and coaches focus exclusively on the physical side. We believe there are large performance gains available by looking at psychological factors. None of the physical work happens without motivation, focus and confidence.

Scientific foundation. Training should be evidence-based and scientifically grounded. Live experience is important, too, but everything starts with a research-led approach to what works.

Everyone is welcome. While some coaches and clubs may focus on elite-level competition, we want to bring the benefits of sport to everyone. Our Running For Beginners Facebook group has over 100,000 people taking their first steps.
