I'm Dave Smith - I've been a national and Olympic coach, I'm an endurance athlete, writer, and creative and I have designed Velocity and Vitality as a resource for anyone seeking to become leaner and faster. Whether a cyclist, triathlete, runner or a current 'none-er', here you can find ideas and inspiration - plus professional services designed to help you improve your performances or simply enhance your enjoyment of your chosen activity.
You'll find thoughts and advice in my ideas page - from recipes to training sessions to travel info, an opportunity to ride with me or have me write you a personal V&V plan, social gatherings, seminars and camps to educate, entertain and exhaust, and anything else I can think of which will help you become that athlete you believe you have the DNA to be.
As a professional who combines a scientific foundations with creative strategies and counter intuitive methods, I have specialised for years in giving my clients permission to attain the outstanding new levels of fitness and performance that they secretly knew they could achieve.
These are people just like you who turned into...
- The winning athlete
- The slim middle-aged man
- The hill running mum
- The faster cyclist
- The new triathlete
If you really want things to change and you’re not quite sure how, get in touch, look out for events, read the ideas, look at the videos. In 20 years of working in the area of human performance, I’ve coached athletes from world champions to Tour de France stage winners, to over-weight business men without a gym membership - who love cheese.
