Background

I’ve been swimming since I was 2, albeit with a few tears at the beginning, and swam competively at a regional level from 8yrs old to 13 yrs old, with selection to the Canterbury Country Swim Team.  My interests then shifted to team sports (which I had also been playing since 8yrs old), with selection to the Canterbury School Boys Rugby League Team for four years, and also a selection to the Southern Zone team. My first taste of triathlon was nearly 20 years later in Dublin, Ireland in 2003 (wearing speedos and a t-shirt!), and I was instantly hooked.
Since my first Triathlon I’ve been focused on improving myself and have been coached by various UK coaches including Robin Brew, Rich Brady and Richard Stannard.   After operating an eight week swim coaching session for the Belpark Triathlon Club in Dublin I decided to get involved in coaching.  My UK level 1 qualification soon followed as did a series of successful 8 week triathlon bootcamps in Dublin, Ireland.  In 2010 I moved back to New Zealand and continued my coaching passion.
Having been involved in team sports and starting triathlon later in life I have a great understanding of what its like for us late bloomers in the sport.  I have a very analytical mind which really helps when it comes to assessing and correcting technique, plus I have coached athletes of all levels (and ages) including some to Personal Bests at the Age group World Champs.  If you need help with your understanding of what you’re trying to achieve, start with a pen and paper, write down your goals and then give us a shout.
