Perform • Sustain • Flourish


He takes time to get to know his athletes in order to understand their individual triathlon experiences, strengths, challenges and overall attitude. He is extremely encouraging and communicates regularly with me just to see how I’m progressing. What makes Paul a ‘real’ coach is that he ‘walks the talk’. He is always finding ways to improve his own performance and this is inspirational. He does not pretend, he knows that triathletes can have both good days and bad days. He knows when to push and when to pull back. He always encourages me to look for the best in my training and Training Peaks offers a concise platform for this.

After the scary decision to sign up for my first Ironman at Cairns 2013 I then made my best decision to ask Paul to coach and guide me along my Ironman journey. I quickly realised that being fit was just 1 piece to the puzzle of having a successful race. Paul has a huge amount of experience in endurance racing himself and a vast amount of knowledge about all aspects it takes to become a successful endurance athlete. Paul is not only a great coach but also a great mentor.

My swim coach was watching me like a hawk this morning. About 45 mins in he asked what I'd been doing. I had to fess up & tell him I'd done a swim session with you. He said to send his compliments to you, you've managed to get through to me in one session what he's been trying to get through for the past few months. He said just keep doing what you've shown me because it's working for me. I've taken about 3-4 seconds off my 25m lap time & reduced my stroke rate at the same time.

No doubt about it, without Paul’s guidance, advice and coaching I would not have achieved my first Ironman results. Paul has real empathy for his athletes and tailors his programs and advice to suit the individual. I am not sure who was happier at the finish line Paul or myself?! Thanks again Paul without you I would not be an Ironman!

Paul has a deep understanding of more than just the disciplines of triathlon, something many fail to recognise. Paul enabled me to achieve all my goals and I get to take away knowledge and understanding that will last a lifetime. Thanks Paul.

My 10 year old son has been having lessons with Mair for over two months now and the improvement in his swimming has been fantastic. We noticed an improvement immediately. I really like how she can tune into his mood then make him relax enough to concentrate on swimming. I can listen in while making dinner or just watch. Love it!

Mair is a knowledgeable, energetic, and caring instructor. From the first lesson, she has built a wonderful rapport with my son. My son has attended lessons for a short time, but in that time she has shown him water safety and the ability to get himself out of the water in an emergency. His progress in this short time is just amazing. He is so much more confident in the water now without any noodles. She always provides feedback of his progress. Her lessons are a combination of techniques that includes swimming skills and games that keeps him intrigued throughout the lesson.
