Coaching you to reach your full potential
Hello, I'm Dave Clissitt, I fell in love with the great outdoors at a very young age; growing up in a small village in South East Wales. When I was younger I spent every spare minute that I had running on the local hills and the mountains of the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and climbing at the local crag.
I joined the local athletics club when I was 10 years old with dreams of being an olympic sprinter; but if the truth be told I wasn't cut out for sprinting. I was built more for middle and long distance running which I did competitively until my mid twenties.
I joined the Royal Marines at the tender age of 17 and was fortunate enough to serve my country all over the world. I am a former member of Mountain Rescue and an experienced fell and mountain runner, climber and mountaineer. I have completed a number of endurance races and solo unsupported adventures including:
I am a qualified coach, personal trainer and fitness instructor. I currently coach endurance athletes in both trail and mountain running and mountain biking from complete beginner to elite.
