Having been involved in sport all my life and triathlon for over 10 years, I have been lucky enough to have trained and raced around Australia and the World. My early days in Triathlon were at the sprint distance and I gradually progressed through to Half Ironman and Ironman distances. It was throughout this progression that I knew my passion was in long distance triathlon racing and I haven’t looked back since.
After my early years in the sport being self coached, learning a range of different training techniques and methods, I had success to various degrees. However, I knew if I wanted to take my performance to the next level I had to get on board with a coach, to allow me to focus on the training. In 2014, I turned to the expertise of T:Zero Multisport to take me to my first Ironman finish and it was on this day where it showed me that anything is possible in this sport if you’re willing to put in the work.
Under the guidance of Richard Thompson, I progressed to an Ironman age group win and Hawaii Ironman World Championship finish, fulfilling a lifelong dream and a goal that initially really seemed like the impossible. All whilst building a wealth of knowledge around training and recovery methods and finding out firsthand what the body is truly capable of doing.
I have been there myself, I know exactly what it takes to go from mid to back of the pack placings to being at the front of the race and gaining that elusive Kona qualification. I have a genuine passion in assisting athletes develop and progress in this sport. My strength is in understanding how to balance a busy career with triathlon goals, be that a first time Ironman finish, achieving that elusive PB, or even a long term goal of qualifying for a World Championships.
My coaching philosophy is based on ensuring the athlete focusses on the enjoyment of the process and seeing the results that eventuate out of this as a secondary. I strongly believe there are no limits to what any athlete can achieve in Triathlon, given the right amount of commitment, dedication and importantly patience. With the right mindset and drive, anyone can progress and perform beyond what they thought was even possible.
