Researching and coaching in East Africa plays a big part in developing my analysis and coaching philosophies. One of the early questions that came from my time there was ‘is the East Africans’ success down to nature or nurture?’. This question prompted me to create a research programme in Uganda.

I work with Ugandans’ that have undoubted running ability but have not been through any kind of training programme. This work enables me to better understand efficient and dynamic movement and the creation of the Running Reborn coaching academy in Masaka is invaluable in helping me to understand and coach natural movement.
