One thing that there seems to be is an abundance of triathlon coaches and I am putting my hand up to be another. I have now been in the sport for 5 years and have a wealth of both racing and training experience behind me. I have literally gone from dead last to AG winner and everything in between. I did it the hard way and learned a hell of a lot along the way. I never saw myself as a triathlon coach, instead it is something that I fell into. Last year, while racing, another athlete introduced himself to me. Later that week he asked if I did coaching. I agreed to give it a 'tri' and have been coaching athletes ever since. I am mostly focusing on beginner athletes at the moment but also have some more advanced athletes as well. At the end of the day, I think it is important to acknowledge that I do not know everything about the sport. I learn new things all the time. So I pride myself on working with my athletes collaborating to get the best out of each and every one of them.

I started training with Tim 18 months ago now as a very beginner triathlete. I was looking for some advice from someone with experience when I discovered Tim and was in awe at his journey, overcoming his own hurdles and adversity, evolving from unfit beginner triathlete to the very fit, healthy and successful athlete he trained hard at to become.
Tim's story resonated with me and through his genuine, approachable nature and willingness to help this beginner, resulted in Tim being the ultimate mentor for me and soon to be coach. Training for a 70.3 seemed so impossible for me at the time but I stuck to the training and before I knew it I was participating in my first 70.3!
With Tim's supportive and encouraging approach towards my training, I have been able to push past my limits and strive towards goals I once thought impossible. Looking forward to training for and achieving my next big goal!
When I approached Tim for some coaching last year, I kinda knew that he would not go easy on me, and some sessions were quite tough but always doable. Only a few months later, I was able to smash my PBs in all three sports, I ran a half marathon in 1:28 that seemed impossible to me and improved my ironman distance PB by 1 hour!
If you really want to achieve something in our beautiful sport, then I can definitely recommend Tim. He is not only a great ambassador for triathlon but he truly lives this lifestyle passionately, inspires athletes around him, and reminds you to TRI. Prepare for hard but very effective training plans, sessions that might hurt initially but will help you to reach the next level.
When i first set myself a goal of doing a triathlon deep down i didnt really think it was possible. I was carrying too much weight and was a terrible swimmer. Tim took me on as a client and my results were terrific.
Not only did i complete my first tri, I lost a heap of weight in the process. The training was specific to both my ability and my race needs and was ever evolving as my skill and training capacity increased.
One thing that sets Tim apart is his ability to motivate and encourage, to get the best out of you. This is the guy you want in your corner.
