To say I am a sports nut maybe an understatement. Coaching, competing, supporting, participating, and watching sport has been my life’s journey. As a kid, I did what many did - played as many sports as I could to get legitimate days off school.
After graduating from the University of Canberra with a Bach of Applied Science in Sports Coaching I was lucky enough to make sport my profession. For the last 21 years I have worked as a professional Swim Coach. I have been privilege enough to have coached athletes who successfully competed in triathlons, pool, open water, water polo and surf lifesaving at national and international level. In this time I have been lucky enough to have worked with triathletes from complete novice to world class athletes.
In the early days of my coaching career my personal sports participation took a back seat as I was obsessed with learning and becoming better at my “trade”. Then I found running - more specifically Ultra Running…I always loved endurance sport and the challenges they provide. I thrive on finding solutions in preparing physically and mentally for events, planning for seemingly every scenario, understanding body maintenance as well as striving for that runner’s high!!!
From a coach perspective, I provide individuals with custom programs that fit into their lives not on top of their lives. I also want athletes to be ensured their goal and assisting them achieve their goal is my priority while also allowing them to grow as people. And my experience tells me happy athletes are fast athletes.
