About us

Dr Luke Mosley

I grew up as an accidental endurance athlete.  Born with a joy for exploring, adventuring and exercising I found mountain bike racing when it was a niche sport in the early 90's.  I combined a love of racing with a lack of talent and realised that I'd have to train smart to have any chance of progressing past the middle of the pack.

 This interest in training led to graduating top of my class on the way to gaining a first-class Sport & Exercise Science degree and then a PhD in Sports Science & Nutrition where I published a number of peer-reviewed articles on sports nutrition and endurance exercise.  I then followed my enthusiasm for education and numbers, working as an teacher specialising in A-level maths.

I now combine my two passions; education and coaching here at Real Endurance Coaching.  

As an athlete on the bike I've raced and won mountain bike races, time trials, road races and cyclocross races with my biggest achievement being crowned National Champion in the Masters category in 2015. 

Away from the bike I've raced Ironman, for GB as an age-group triathlete, completed multiple sub-2 hour olympic distance triathlons, won an ultra-running race, completed a sub 24-hour 100 mile ultra, won swimrun races, run a 2:52 marathon as well as multiple 1:16 half marathons. 

 

Over the past few years I've focused on swimrun races and this new sport has breathed a new lease of life into my competitive drive. 

We know how to make you faster and we can help you learn how to be faster.

I joined the REAL Endurance Coaching Team six years ago as a self-coached athlete and was mentored by Luke through my junior years and into the U23 category, where I then joined the team as an apprentice coach. Over the first year Luke mentored and taught me how to be a great coach and I graduated three years ago and have been coaching my own athletes ever since. I’m really excited to have been promoted to co-head coach alongside Luke. 

 

I’ve got extensive experience racing multiple disciplines both at a National and International level and have enjoyed success across many disciplines,

most notably National cross country mountain bike podiums and winning the Elite U23 national rankings in 2019 and again in 2021. I’ve also coached athletes to some brilliant results in both ultra-distance cycling races and across a range of other disciplines. These include World records and National championships.

 

Away from the bike I have a background in sport science as well as achieving my level 1&2 British cycling coaching qualifications, my training peaks Level 1&2 Qualification and my advanced metrics qualification.

 

Over the last few year of coaching I have been lucky enough to work alongside some of the best cyclists and triathletes, both in the UK and further afield, and have helped them work towards their goals but I've also worked with athletes who are new to, or returning to, their respective sports and helped them progress towards and achieve their goals.
