About Me

Bernard McCullagh

I gained my first Triathlon coaching qualification in 2011. After having completed my undergraduate in Sport Studies BA (Hons) Sports and Exercise, and my Professional Master of Education in Physical Education Teaching and Coaching. I now work full time as a Physical Education Teacher and Coach in Qatar. 

I have gained a valuable perspective from being an athlete and now a coach, I've realised that coaching is fundamentally a two-way relationship, it’s about building trust, identifying and working towards a chosen goal. I work with individuals  to create a personalised training plan which identifies weaknesses, maintains and enhances strengths while taking into account the demands of everyday life. However, it should be

noted commitment, dedication, and loyalty to the training plan will bring about progress, better results and personal success, alongside this some of the main pillars of my coaching philosophy are : 

  • Sleep

  • Consistent training

  • Recovery

  • Body management

  • Nutrition  

These are some of the core pillars of our coaching philosophy at BMC coaching and athletes must realise that a performance does not come overnight.

Before launching BMC Coaching, I have completed the following coaching accreditations.

  • ITU/World Triathlon Accredited Coach

  • ASA Swim Coach

  • UKA Athletics Coach

  • CYQ Gym Instructor

Since moving to Qatar in 2017, I have been at the forefront of triathlon coaching both at a national level and on the domestic racing scene. Internationally I have assisted Qatari Age group athletes at the 2018 World Championships in Australia, both in preparation for the race and execution on race day. Domestically I have achieved the following accolades.

National Series Winner - 2018,2019,2020

Doha Triathlon Winner - 2018,2019,2020

5KM - 15:37, Marathon 2:41

If you would like some coaching advice or any guidance, I would be more than happy to assist, and please do not hesitate to get in touch.
