I am Axel and a TRINZ (Triaithlon New Zealand) certified coach. My main focus is on juniors development - guiding junior athletes towards an elite triathlon pathway.
I am also a fully (ISIA) qualified nordic and alpine ski instructor. I do also work as a MTB and cycle guide. I have a long background of playing sports and studying to become an instructor / coach. I am a fan of X-training having played competitive tennis, soccer, been a reasonable pool swimmer when I was 'real young' (14-18). I picked up middle distance, and XC running after high school in Germany specialising in 3000m steeple chase and short course XC. I did also try a few TRIs, but did only discover my real talent after coming to New Zealand. I have been racing all distances and types of triathlons (2007-2010 as pro over long distance, sprint, Olympic as well as X-terra) and have been to Kona in 2006 and 2007.My philosophy of training is to do the basic things right: Develop a good aerobic base without getting injured and mix the disciplines! Don't start high volume training when young! Race Hard! Have Fun!
