Bio

I come from a life long background of sports. Active in competitive athletics (middle distance) at State level in my youth, competitive Muay Thai during university and beyond, a diversion via strength and conditioning in the gym and arriving at age group competitive triathlon; add to that climbing, mountaineering and skiing as hobbies. I am naturally curious so also into sports nutrition and all sorts of differing training methods.

The above helps me to be creative and open in my approach with my athletes. No one training plan works for everyone and my athletes get individual programs based on their goals and life circumstances.

I can only be as good as the collaboration with my athletes allows, so communication (email, text, Skype), feedback and honesty are paramount. But my athletes get out what they put in - it isn’t a one way street.

Having suffered from over-training, injuries, nerve damage as a result of an accident (surfing, not triathlon related) I know all too well that it isn’t always smooth sailing but I take my responsibility for an athlete’s well-being extremely serious - which is incidentally why I prefer to work for longer periods with athletes rather than a three months stint for an event.

While athletic achievements don’t make a good coach, it at least demonstrates exposure to the different distances:

  • Podium in Sprint
  • Podium in Olympic Distance
  • 4th in 70.3 (PB 4:18)
  • Worlds Qualification for 70.3 and Olympic Distance
