I offer personalised and customised training plans based on the fundamental principles of exercise physiology so you can train smarter, accelerate progress and peak at exactly the right moment.

My training plans include power-duration testing and block periodisation / progressive overload that have been intelligently designed, with shorter sessions mid-week and longer endurance work on the weekend to provide structure, consistency and allow time for your friends, family and career.

Bio

A scientist and engineer by education, my studies included advanced biology, metabolic pathways and energy metabolism. I chose to pursue a career in contaminated land remediation and contaminant hydrogeology but remained passionate about sports physiology and applied this to various endeavours in my non-professional career including ultra-distance running and road cycling.

I’m a life-long athlete and have competed at state and national level in road cycling (less competitive at national level!). I often use Zwift as a safer, more efficient method of training and currently hold the vEverest world record for the Radio Tower (5h 57m) and Alpe du Zwift (7h 34m).

I’m self-trained and have been able to achieve a 20 minute FTP of 415W at 66.5kg with a VO2 max of 74mL/kg/min (graded test at Monash University) using the fundamental principles of exercise physiology, smart training and good nutrition and hope to be able to pass these learnings onto others.

I use TrainingPeaks and WKO5 to identify physiological profiles and guide training decisions. I’ll be able to tell if you are overtraining or leaving too much on the table with Training Impact Scores and Dynamic Functional Reserve Capacity data. We’ll find your strengths and limiters and get better results in less time with personalised training tailored to your physiology.

I am happy to answer any questions via email and can provide advice on nutrition, methodologies, terminology and lessons learned.
