My name is Angela Jones I am an outdoor, adventure expert and fitness coach. Specialising in wild swimming, kayaking, and the underlying strengthening and technique required to learn, improve and excel in these activities.
Over 20 years of International experience holding many international titles at senior level & category in triathlon & running up into my 50s, I firmly believe age is no barrier. You can introduce fitness into your life at any time and if you make fitness enjoyable it takes hold. Being fifty-three, I believe nothing is unattainable.
I work with clients of all ages and abilities to help them achieve their fitness objectives, whatever level they seek to attain. I believe it’s paramount that strengthening and technique can be introduced at any age and benefits the whole body in whatever we do.
I’m an independent traveller through far-flung places and the wild parts of the UK incorporating my adventurous sports with my dog Jack. Recent trips include kayaking from the Atlantic to North Sea through Scotland and running 92 miles back towing a kayak, swimming in Iceland with the icebergs and into the Tectonic plates with monofins (no wetsuit), a 5 week Wye adventure filmed by the BBC to include 100 mile kayak down the Wye, a 160 mile run back up the Wye Valley and an 86 mile swim down, sleeping out for 5 weeks and joined by my faithful dog Jack. My latest adventure took me and Jack across the Wild Atlantic Way of Ireland; kayaking remote waters day and night unveiling the luminous Plankton, wild swimming with monofins in lakes, lochs, the Atlantic and the Irish Sea and running in the mountains and sleeping under the stars.
I believe that bringing the elements of fun into fitness is the only way to enjoyment which is essential if the fitness ‘habit’is going to take root.
Part of this is making use of our wonderful countryside and the spectacular Wye Valley. Stunning forest, beautiful rock formations, miles of trail, plenty of wildlife and of course the wondrous River Wye itself with its clear waters and endless beauty. The Wye Valley is the most amazing venue for exciting adventures in fitness and training
The variety of terrain makes the local area ideal for all ages and abilities whether you are a beginner who just want to experience outdoor fitness or at an advanced level working toward individual goals with an emphasis on strengthening and technique.
