An active lifestyle is something that's inspired me from a very early age. I was privileged as a child to be exposed to many sports & encouraged to be active, but never forced to participate or compete. I grew up to love the outdoors, regular movement & eventually physical challenges as well.
I began a more professional journey as an athlete after school, competing in trail running, triathlon (road and off-road), mountain biking & eventually ultra running. Ultras presented me with nutrition challenges & inspired me to complete the UESCA nutrition course to assist others with similar issues.
“Sharing the science, art and love of movement for a lifetime of sustainable and optimal performance.”
My coaching philosophy is a multi-faceted Firstly, I strive to bring athletes the latest but most relevant and accurate science of sport. This applies to all areas of training - the way you eat, sleep & think is just as important as the way you move.
Second is the art of coaching. All the science in the world cannot design a training plan that is congruent with each individual’s schedule, work-life balance or training history & goals. Whether you prefer the drill-sergeant or cheer-leader coach, it will always take a human to listen, understand and motivate you when training gets tough.
Finally, my coaching is based on a love of movement. I promote a fun & sustainable training process which prioritises each athlete's long-term physical well-being as well as performance gains.
