I love this life and getting the best from myself. I love working with others to get the best from themselves. Coaching you to be your best!
I get satisfaction from using my knowledge and experience to assist others in pursuit of their endurance sports goals. Knowledge and experience gleaned from 23 years devoted to the sport of triathlon and 13 years competing at the pinnacle of the sport, the Hawaii Ironman World Championship.
I have coached athletes to:
· Ironman age-group wins
· Ironman age-group course records
· Ironman World Championship qualifications
Equally satisfying has been coaching beginners to prepare for a sprint triathlon finish or their first Half-Ironman or Ironman race.
Highlights of my own age-group race resume include:
· Australian Long-Distance Triathlon champion 2020
· 3 x New Zealand Ironman Triathlon champion 2016/17/19
· 2 x Asia-Pacific Ironman Triathlon champion 2014/15
· Australian Ironman Triathlon champion 2010
· Multiple Half Ironman age-group wins
· Yarra Boulevard Half Marathon 3rd overall and age-group win 2010
I have learnt a lot and put those lessons to use both in my own development as an athlete, as well as being able to guide the development of others.
The result: I improved my Ironman personal best from 11 hours 42 minutes in 2000 as a 35-year-old, to 9 hours 6 minutes in 2014 as a 50-year-old. In Hawaii I improved from 10 hours 48 minutes in 2007 to 9 hours 48 minutes in 2013. This level of achievement could only be attained by finding a workable balance between training and a demanding full-time career as a corporate executive.
