"Coaching that fits you"
I am a TriNZ accredited coach who works with a range of athletes: first timers, higher performers, short and long distances.
My aim is to give you what you need to achieve your goals. For some that is regular support and encourangement, for others that is a high performance training plan and the occasional catch up.
Tell me what's important to you and we'll make it work.
I coach people to achieve great results, and have a great experience along the way.
I have competed in Olympic distance, Half Ironman, and Ironman triathlons, as well as cycling events, ocean swims, half marathons, and various other events.
There have been plenty of successes in my training and racing, but I've had some hard lessons too: training approaches that didn't work, injuries, and poorly executed races. I've taken some knocks, and you get the benefit of these hard lessons.
So what's with the "Mr Smith's" name?
I wanted a name that was different to all the other "performance coach" kind of names out there. Yes you still get the performance with my coaching but you also get a lot more support and personal service along the way - not just a boring old training plan.
To me coaching is about far more than just a training plan. To me coaching is about providing the support you need to reach your goals. For some this is the accountability of regular checkups by the coach, for others it is helping to make sure training is done appropriately, and for others it may be that support is only needed occasionally to prepare for events or when things aren't going to plan.
That's why I provide different coaching options, so we can make it work for you.
