Coach Bio

I have been racing, studying and coaching endurance sports for my entire adult life. For me, endurance training isn't an afterthought or a chore, it's a way of life.

Early mornings, blisters, afternoon naps, getting excited about the latest Garmin release, that's who I am.

My start in Coaching

During my PhD, I began to get approached for my advice on endurance training principles and practices. My experience as an elite athlete and sports scientist allowed me to present information in a way that was new and eye-opening for a lot of athletes. In 2016, I formalised my coaching business with my PhD supervisor, Professor Steve Stannard, and Performance Advantage was born.

After completing my PhD in 2018, I committed to helping endurance athletes from all walks of life train smarter and become better.

Based on my core values I have developed the following goals;

  • Encourage athletes to challenge their current way of training.
  • Fill the knowledge void between athletes and sports professionals.
  • Teach athletes to train more efficiently without the risk of injury and overtraining
  • Create a new generation of educated athletes.

I'm based in Rotorua, New Zealand.
