TLA news

TLA Tom!

A little bit about me.

Launching you into Spring...

...with a FREE stability & mobility class, a fantastic trail running experience, a GREAT review of KONA IRONMAN 2019 and a heads up video as to what TLA's up to in July...ENJOY!


Stability and Mobility are often forgotten parts of our training programs, yet they are so important and help us to become stronger, fitter and healthier. This will in turn help us to achieve our goals and progress with our training further.

What is Mobility and Stability? 

Mobility relates to movement while stability relates to control. Stability is defined as the ability to maintain control of joint movement or position by coordinating actions of surrounding tissues and the neuromuscular system, this is hugely important to our training and day to day activities.

Mobility and stability unlock better human movement. Flexibility can benefit movement by increasing the range of motion within a joint. Working to improve movement in as little as 10 minutes a day can lead to healthier joints, less pain, and decreased risk of injury.

Any time you improve stability, you improve the likelihood of better performance across the spectrum of your fitness and health goals.

YUKON 1000
Please click here to DONATE


A totally self-supported 1000 mile paddle over 10 days from Canada into the Arctic Circle, finishing in the Alaskan backcountry. Team Wapiti will be on Stand Up Paddleboards the whole way, paddling 18hour days to the finish line.


The Yukon 1000 follows the footsteps of early adventurers, immersing in the raw, untouched wilderness that few humans ever experience. No phones. No sat navs. There is zero communication during this trip.


The project will be raising money and awareness for two excellent charities: The Royal Marines Charity and ROSY (Respite Nursing for Oxfordshire’s Sick Youngsters). As a supporter and sponsor of this project you will be helping to raise money and awareness for these two superb organisations and the invaluable work they do, now and in the future.

If you’re interested in discussing sponsorship opportunities and the rewards you would receive from that, please do get in touch. We want our sponsors to be a part of this experience with us, so come and get involved.

KONA IRONMAN 2019 - The dream came true.....

KONA IRONMAN 2019 - The dream came true.....

The 12th of October 2019 had been a date etched on my mind for many months, if not years before the date finally came around.

Some of you may have read the TLA update which explained that I had finally managed to qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. There was nothing more complicated to this very simple goal; get that qualification slot!

As you may expect, the whole trip was a complete dream. At no point was I underwhelmed by the location, build up, conditions or the event itself. This can often be the case after so many years of chasing that ultimate goal, so it was a huge relief that everything lived up to the mythical expectations I had of Kona.
