Brisbane , Australia
I am a Level 2 NCAS Certified Mountain Bike coach, specialising in cross-country olympic, cross-country marathon, cyclocross and gravity-enduro racing. I have coached athletes at the local, state, domestic and international level, including Australian representatives for cross-country worlds in both marathon and olympic format. I have a relaxed but realistic approach to coaching at the recreational and sub-elite level, realising that most athletes have competing demands for their time.
Having come through an Australian talent-identification cycling program, my interest was piqued in physiology and coaching from the beginning, as a fledgling cyclist. From here I have personally accomplished many cycling goals at a domestic level, including representing Australia at cross-country marathon World Championships in 2016.
Attaining my level 1 and then Level 2 NCAS Coaching accreditation have developed my skills as a coach and I have had many athletes on their own development pathways alongside me! Coached athletes include several Australian Worlds cross-country olympic team representatives.
I enjoy coaching athletes that are motivated and open to using a holistic approach combining program with analysis of data, nutrition and mental strategies to ensure each athlete can reach their potential in the sport. I don't believe in a punitive approach, but ensure my athletes know they will only get out what they put into their coaching.
