All my life I have been fit and what I thought was healthy. In recent years I embarked on the triathlon journey, once my youngest was old enough, so that I could get out to train. That journey has become a part-time job/obsession/my life and now the whole family is into it as well.
I am coached and gained qualifications to coach earlier this year wanting to help others like me get into the sport and find ways to manage their time to improve their quality of life.
I'm an Australian, living in Shanghai with my family. We moved overseas 13 years ago. No longer working full time I turned my attention to activities on my bucket list. Competitive sport was one of those on the list and when I discovered triathlons everything else fell off.
Every year I set goals to go faster and ahieve more but also to help others do the same.
As a coach I offer all the usual training plans but would like to think it is more than that. I not only want to help them achieve a race dream or finishing goal but to a lead better quality of life. I am not only an exercise coach but a whole of life health coach, looking at many aspects of my clients lives from life work balance to nutrition.
I do this for the love of it and my greatest satisfaction is sharing my clients successes and helping them achieve their goals. This year I reached my goal of ranking number 1 in the world in my age group for Ironman 70.3
