Tim has been involved in triathlon and multisport events since 2004 and has been competing ever since. But Tim’s passion is in assisting others to achieve their goals through coaching and mentoring.
Tim lives by the ethos that “Triathlon is a Team Sport” and this is evident in the way that he brings all squad members together no matter their ability or goals – Tri Nation Triathlon Training is his family! Very rarely will you not see a smile on Tim’s face when he is coaching – whether it be running, on the bike or standing on the pool deck (unless your are swimming on someone’s feet).
Tim has been working with athletes of all abilities since 2010. Having been an age group athlete balancing the demands of a full time professional career for many years Tim knows what it is like to have to find the balance between when to work, rest and play. He spends a considerable amount of time customising the squad and individual programs to ensure that all of his athletes achieve a healthy balance so that they have the time to perform at every session and in every race. Working with so many parents he has developed an understanding and appreciation of what sacrifices are made to get the training and racing done.
Since starting coaching in 2010 he has worked on and developed a number of training methods and philosophies to assist countless athletes achieve their goals in their athletic endeavours
Apart from understanding the science behind endurance performance Tim’s strength lies in his ability to get the best out of his athletes by not just developing them physically but mentally.
Tim, himself was very much a beginner athlete when he began his triathlon journey and as such can relate to those dipping their feet in the water for the first time and has worked hard and consistently to achieve his athletic results.
