Your Training Redefined
Chris Carter Bsc.Hons
UKSCA accredited L3 Strength and Conditioning Coach
Creation online coaching is a bespoke, non generic, programming platform for clients who do not have the need, time or access to in studio one-2-one personal training.
All online planning is provided by Creation owner Chris Carter. Chris has over 14 years experience in both coaching and exercise prescription. Chris has delivered in excess of 10,000 hours of one-2-one coaching as well as providing programming for first timers through to elite International level athletes.
Chris has participated in many physical activities over the years including competing at International level Canoe Slalom up until his early twenties. More recently he has completed many medium and long distance trail running events up to and including a 35 mile Ultra. His personal focus currently is primarily triathlon, racing up to 70.3 distance. Alongside these more endurance based events he retains an ongoing practice of resistance training based predominantly around Olympic lifting.
All programming is designed to meet the needs of the individual. Programmes are progressive, tracked and delivered in a way that makes everything clear and easy to follow through the use of world class software platforms. Personal support is also given via ongoing in app messaging, email and the use of video feedback for analysis of client technique.
The client will be able to download our exclusive Creation app which will serve not only as platform for delivering programming but can be used for tracking daily exercise and ongoing progress. The app also provides a video data base of all the exercises in your programme, so technique is correct and your training is both safe and effective.
I would regard myself as a self motivated athlete, and yet, I have learnt that a good coach can take you beyond the limits of perceived capability. When you are training at your limits- focussed, exhausted, driven- it is so important to have a coach that makes you feel you are important; Chris epitomises this level of personalised coaching. His dedication to his own learning, adapting my training based upon real time feedback, and making training sessions varied and enjoyable is commendable. Chris was able to develop all aspects of my triathlon training - he increased my power on the bike through focussed indoor and outdoor sessions, but also through targeted strength sessions in the gym. His background in strength and conditioning is a great asset to his spectrum of skills. The run is my strongest discipline and yet, living in a tropical country, I valued the mixed interval sessions to make progress manageable. The swim sets allowed me to focus on technique, endurance and strength at the right sections of my periodised training. An all round complex training programme that allowed me to just sweat it out. Onwards to the next challenge!
Claire Walton: Ironman UK Age Group Winner / Kona Qualifier 2018
After several months of inactivity I decided I needed to set myself a physical goal to get me back into the swing of things and implement a regular exercise routine into my weekly schedule. I have never been the best self starter in terms of exercise so decided to seek some advice and get a proper programme to follow to keep me disciplined in the lead up to the running race I had chosen, the Dubai women's run.
Chris was recommended to me by a friend, so I contacted him to see if he could help me. He created an online running programme for me to follow and also a complementary running specific body-weight programme for me to complete at home.
The programme provided was developed to my own individual needs and time constraints as a busy working mother. I am pleased to say that not only did I manage to reach my goal on race day but I thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and training in the lead up thanks to Chris and his ongoing support.
I am a 65 year old triathlete who had completed 6 Ironman competitions before I met Chris. I didn't want to compete at the longer distance anymore and I was looking for a coach who could train me for the shorter triathlon distances. Chris Carter was recommended to me by fellow triathletes. Initially it was a 60 minute weekly session at the Creation studio. This developed into Chris producing training plans for my future challenges online through the training Peaks platform.

Competing for GB in the European Age Group Standard Distance Triathlon in 2016 and 2018
and World Age Group Standard Distance Triathlon in 2018
Qualifying for the European and World Age Group Standard Distance Triathlon to be held in 2020
I have now been coached by Chris for over 5 years and his knowledge, understanding and support can only be described as first class.
An amazingly thought thorough programme was started in the January 2011... and having already qualified for the ETU European Sprint Triathlon in Pontevedra in July and the ITU World Championships in Beijing September these were my main priority events.
Chris set to and re-wrote my training plan which was far different from ‘my’ regime...
It was a periodised very prescriptive personalised training plan...with many ‘tweaks’ when needed...I was hugely right-side dominant and my body strength needed to be ‘evened’ up...and indeed this had probably been the cause of many previous running injuries.
The build up to my races couldn’t have been or gone any better... Chris has taught me so much and I do feel that I could write my own programme however I like that I am accountable to my coach which really works. He still coaches me today as I believe in him and enjoy the results his methods bring:
2011 - 4th ETU European Sprint Triathlon Championships Pontevedra
2011 - 3rd ITU World Sprint Triathlon Championships Beijing
2012 - 2nd ETU European Sprint Triathlon Championships- Eilat
2012 - 10th ITU World Sprint Triathlon Championships New Zealand
2013 - 1st ETU European Sprint Triathlon Championships- Alanya Turkey
2013 - 25th ITU World Sprint Triathlon Championships London
2017 - 5th ETU European Sprint Triathlon Championships Glasgow

You have to be motivated to get the most out of online training. Without the benefit of one-2-one personal training at the studio you will need to be dedicated, disciplined, and focused. Anything less and you will be wasting your money. The results come from your hard work and most importantly, consistency. Chris will simply provide the tools, direction and support for personal development. The outcomes are down to you!
Establishing the correct diet is as important to attaining your set goals as the physical programme itself. Results will be achieved at a faster rate if the correct nutritional approach is adopted to support your weekly training schedule. For this reason we offer two Nutritional support options.
The first, and more advisable if you struggle to control and find consistency with your nutritional approach or have more defined goals is by taking our Nutritional 6 Week Bolt On. This package will include you teaming up with our Precision Nutrition certified nutritional consultant Richard Franklin.
Richard has a proven record of coaching major body composition changes whether that is to safely gain weight (muscle mass) or to safely lose weight (body fat)
Over the last 5 years Richard has developed a nutritional coaching programme that deals with the real issues that dictate body composition. Continuing his professional development he has taken a step further in his qualifications to become a Level 4 Behaviour Change Specialist. This enables him to coach the individual smartly and effectively using habit changing protocols and SMART goal setting. The 6 week process includes initial goal setting targets, macro nutrient calculation and daily nutrient tracking guidelines. Weekly consultation via either telephone or email/watts app messaging. This weekly contact progresses goal setting and action points whilst also providing ideas for meals and snacks that can be implemented at appropriate timings. There is also a strong emphasis on mindset and practical techniques for success.
It is recommended that this is used alongside a training programme to ensure long-term sustainable results are achieved.
The second option, is free and comprises of generic eating plans being provided that can be followed alongside your physical programme. These have been written by a registered nutritionist and fall into different categories e.g female fat loss / high protein or male beach body plan etc. Simple macro nutrient calculations can be done on the Creation app which compliment these generic plans. These generic plans are best suited to people who already have a controlled diet and perhaps want some further ideas to add to their already stable dietary approach.
All training packages will be built around the individual's own training needs. Individual sessions are created in line with your current experience, fitness level and training goal. For the two longer coaching packages testing sessions will be provided to create a base line for measuring client progression.
With all packages each client will receive the following...
Monthly periodisation with bespoke weekly programming including individual sessions built around your own needs and goals
Creation Ios or android app so you can have your plan and tracking accessible anytime.
A data base of videos to demonstrate exactly how to perform your programmed exercises.
