Simon Bowns

(Weightlifting Coach)

Simon is one of our more newly qualified coaches, having completed his BWL Level 1 course in March 2017.  He runs a successful mountain bike shop in the Peak District.  His love for cycling and the great outdoors sometimes sits at odds with an indoor sport like Olympic Weightlifting – but he does his best to balance this.

Simon is keen to get involved with the beginners courses and teaching the Olympic lifts to those new to the sport.  He’s keen to further his coaching experience and looks forward to working towards the level 2 qualification.
