"My biggest joy is seeing people become their better selves"
Some interesting points about me. I self-coached myself to 6 iron distance victories and 5 half iron distance victories. 13 top 3 performances and 2 top 10 at Ironman World Championships. I have also had the opportunity to work with and pick the minds of some of the best coaches in the business and have learnt a huge amount to pass on. I have during my time in the sport done a huge amount of reading on different coaching techniques as well as other areas such as nutrition, strength and conditioning. I have a degree in Psychology which has helped me in my sporting endeavours and also a degree in Teaching, and was a teacher before embarking in over a decade of professional sport. I am an Ironman Certified Coach, Triathlon NZ accredited coach and a certified Personal Trainer, but much of what I have to give comes from my huge experience in the sport. You just can't learn this through a qualification. I am a very hard working and dilligent person who cares a lot about helping others. My main reason for coaching is I feel I have devoted enough time in the pursuit of my own goals and I really want to give back to a sport that I love and care so much about. Ifeel I have a lot to give and am very enthusiastic about being included in the journey inhelping others' in achieving their goals. I still train every day in this sport but race mainly small and local running events. Although I will be back from time to time racing half ironman races as an amateur, with two children a lot of my training now incorporates them with moutain biking and following the kids sporting endeavours. I am enjoying not being so serious in my own training, allowing me more time to help others reach their dreams, and I find it much more rewarding.
