I've been involved in endurance sport for over 20 years, initially as a competitive athlete at Ironman distance triathlon and then as a seasoned marathon runner. I'm experienced in both road and trail races and so far finished 23 marathons with a PB of 2:52. Most noted events are the Comrades Marathon in South Africa, Boston Marathon, Paris Marathon and the Gold Coast Marathon.
I enjoy coaching athletes who are committed to improving performance through a consistent, systemised and structured training approach. I encourage open communication between coach and athlete and program flexibility to integrate with the demands of other vital areas of the athlete's life. I coach my athletes to understand the importance of quality training sessions, progression, adaptation, rest, injury management and nutrition (pre, post and during the event); all of which are equally important when trying to achieve maximum results.
I believe that running is a sport that rewards those who have a keen interest to learn, persistence and commit to the long game.
As a personal trainer, I've helped many first time exercisers take the step from basic strength and conditioning training to participating in regular running events.
