Welcoming AP10′s Run Coach Mel Witchard!

We have been working on this for a long time and are excited to announce Mel Witchard as AP10′s newest coach! Mel is very familiar to the AP10 group, having been coached by Alex for the past 5 years and working with him as a physio at Phytness Healthcare.

At AP10 we have been largely triathlon specific, but have always coached a stable of keen runners, anywhere from track 800m to Ultra-Marathons. Mel will be our “Run Specific” coach as we look to expand this arm of AP10. All coaches and athletes within AP10 work off the same ethos of; education, individuality, specificity, passion and we are very big on the team environment of the group.

All at AP10 would like to welcome Mel as a coach, who also brings the knowledge of a physio and exercise scientist to the group!
