Francisco Campana

Personal Trainer and Life Coach

I have been working in the fitness industry for over 20 years and am also a 12 time Ironman Triathlon Finisher athlete and martial artist. When I started my triathlon and martial arts training I didn’t give a moment’s thought about the mental side. For me it was only how many hours I trained for. As I completed more and more Ironman Triathlons I realised I could only make so many gains on the physical side, but what was holding me back was my emotional intelligence.

During this time I spent quite a bit of time discussing my challenges with another Life Coach and that’s when I realised that not only me but my clients and athletes needed more than just physical training. I branched out into Life Coaching to complement the physical side and to ensure that we have the complete package.

I believe that I offer a unique approach to Life Coaching because I understand both the physical and emotional side of coaching.


I have been training with Fran since 2017, he is not only a coach, but has also become a friend and confidant helping me balance my busy work and social life with my training. He has seen me through many triathlons, cycling events and marathons and I trust him fully to take me on the journey. My main focus with Fran has been Ironman and 70.3 triathlons, which is a journey and a lifestyle that encompasses more than just the physical training and he has been with me every step of the way. He helps me balance the training, nutrition and emotional aspects that go with long distance triathlon. I recently qualified for the IM World Championships in Hawaii and Fran was the first person I wanted to share this with!

Risk Advisory Director, Financial Crime

Fran knows triathlon inside out as well as the body’s limits. His always-on advice on training, nutrition, and gear got me through two 70.3 Ironman races and a full Ironman. I would highly recommend Fran to anyone looking for guidance, motivation, and expertise to achieve their fitness goals.

Co-founder and Director, Xpansion

Fran helped me to train for the Marathon des Sables this year. We worked closely together over a 6-month period and he provided a tailored training plan, hosted regular strength and conditioning sessions and provided advice on nutrition and equipment for the event. I would highly recommend Fran – he is a fantastic coach and mentor. I wouldn’t have completed the MdS without his invaluable guidance!

Account Director at Darktrace

This man is a genius with training and performance. He got me through my Ironman and Etape, and he has trained me Physically for over 7 years. I trust this man with my body and he gets results. He listens and understands the demands in my life. He won’t let me get away with anything, but he is compassionate.

I highly recommend Fran “Coach” Campa to anyone serious about creating change in his or her life.

Rhys Chong
Director Physical Edge Ltd

Fran has been training me for four years and has been a great source of knowledge across multiple disciplines. Whether it’s triathlons, marathons, long distance bike events, strength and conditioning training, nutrition, flexibility, boxing and martial arts, you name it, Fran will be able to help you achieve far more than you could ever do just by yourself.

Highly recommended.
