Ryan started cycling at the age of 13, initially riding mountain bikes, but quickly found his place on the road. Ryan began his racing career in time trials from the age of 15 and entered the world of road and criterium racing shortly after. As a junior, Ryan raced extensively competing at Welsh national level.
Ryan fell in love with the world of cycling and began working within the cycling industry for several years, before deciding to pursue a career in the Royal Air Force.
It was as a senior where he made his break. After purchasing a power meter, Ryan set out to understand the data and how to get the most out of his body. In the following years Ryan achieved countless victories in time trials, criteriums, road races and even the odd cyclo-cross race.
Ryan's biggest achievements include:
In 2019, Ryan's cycling career ended when he was diagnosed with an underlying heart condition that prevented him from ever riding again. Unwilling to leave his passion behind, Ryan chose to apply his extensive knowledge and analytical mind to coaching. And while he can no longer compete, he is driven to help people get the best results they can.
After further education and a trial period, Ryan formally launched Ryan Morley Coaching in June 2019. Over the first 12 months Ryan Morley Coaching grew at a rapid rate. Ryan contiued to push the boundaries of what his athletes thought they could achieve, taking every single one of them to new strengths. Ryan's client base spans across men and women from junior to veteran across the whole country.

Having always kept fit in the gym, `Lisa found running aged 29.
After running a 5km, Lisa decided to enter a half marathon, and with little training found it incredibly challenging. The mistakes she made in preparing for the event made her want to improve and push herself to be the best she could be.
Lisa had certify been caught by the running bug, and the following years were a massive learning curve.
Lisa joined a running club, (Wrexham AC), trained hard, and entered many races. Over this time, she learnt a lot about methods of training and balancing training load effectively with available time.
Lisa carefully implemented everything she had learned, and continued it improve year on year. Throughout her running career Lisa represented North Wales numerous times for cross country and road running. And was selected to represent Wales for cross country.
Lisa was a great all round runner, earning podium places in all road running distances, (5km, 5mile, 10km, half marathon and full marathon), while also being a regional level cross country runner and strong fell runner also.
Lisa was forced to make the decision to step down from competitive running in 2017, aged 46, after discovering she had a genetic heart condition.
"I am still very passionate about the sport I love and still have the drive and motivation to run, train and compete, but as that's not meant to be, it excites me to be able to offer guidance, knowledge and support to athletes on their running journey and help then reach their full potential. Whether you are a seasoned athlete or complete beginner, I can give you everything you need to improve."
