Greg McDermott   Koa Sports

I love helping athletes who want to achieve goals which they may never have thought possible. This is where the magic happens, achieving the unexpected with a new found confidence & most importantly knowing 'WHY' they want to achieve such goals. Coaching isn't just a "program" it's a whole lot more.

I coach on a simple principle; with a positive mindset, a tailored specific and measurable plan, communication and the desire to succeed, anything can be achieved.


After many years of competing in and coaching athletes in endurance sports, I have learnt that the determining factor in success, is the personal belief the athlete has in their own goal they wish to achieve. It has to mean more to them than anything else in their life. When the alarm goes off at 4am in the middle of winter and it's raining outside, the desire to get up and tick off the session, must be greater than the desire to stay in that nice warm bed. This is where the race is won and lost.
