Dion is a qualified exercise physiologist who has competed in both triathlon and mountain biking on a professional level. He is also the founder of the Pain Cave cycling studios in South Africa, and has helped numerous athletes, both in studio and remotely achieve their goals.

Coaching is about so much more than simply writing training plans, no matter how accurate and detailed they may be. Coaching is about developing relationships with people and finding out what it will take to bring the best out of them. Only then can the coach help the athlete grow. A good coach will as a priority, educate the athlete and explain what is happening on a physiological level so that every single training session actually means something.

A good coach understands that every athlete needs to be treated as an individual and every athlete will need something different from a coach to achieve their goals.
