Tino

Sprints

U17+

Tino trains male senior sprinters aged 16 and over. Shropshire's five fastest sprinters are currently in the training group including the current ENGLAND U23 200m Champion and Shropshire all-time record holder in the 100m and 200m Valerio, and Telford AC's second-fastest ever sprinter Mo

About Tino's training

As an athlete and coach my priority is to keep an open mind and never stop learning. Through my career I have made a huge effort to work under many different coaches, some at very high levels and some with very different viewpoints to mine, and learned as much as I could from each one. I read and learn constantly even today, and make it my mission to never stop developing my knowledge and practice.

2022 has been the group's most successful year, and in fact the most successful year for sprinting in Telford AC history. The group's fastest athlete Valerio ran Shropshire all-time records of 10.37 and 20.98 and won bronze and gold in the 100m and 200m respectively at the England U23 Championships; and Mo Aminu improved from 10.91 in 2021 to 10.50 in 2022 (with a 10.40 +2.3), putting him third all-time in Shropshire history behind teammate Valerio, and one other athlete.

I base my training philosophy in three main principles which I believe applies equally to any track event:

1 train at the speed you compete at. This applies to everything from 100m to marathon, and for sprinting means training flat-out as often as possible
2 frequency of training is king. The body improves from frequency more than it improves from intensity
3 experiment and help each athlete discover the training that works perfectly for them. High-level success cannot come from a one-size-fits-all program; my role is to complete the experiment with each athlete with as few mistakes as possible

Our group trains 5x per week, but only 2 or 3 of these are together, the rest are 30 minute sessions done alone when convenient. I make it my job to create self-sufficient athletes who need me as little as possible and can structure their own sessions away from me when needed.
