Brett’s triathlon career began as a 14 year old racing in Australia, where he forged his age (min. age was 16) just so he could toe the line. Since then he has been addicted.
Over the last 20 years Brett has trained, mentored, and competed with some of the biggest names in the sport, both within Australia and overseas. He has competed as both an age grouper and professional athlete and knows the dedication, commitment, and balance required to achieve your goals. Brett now balances work and family commitments with training and uses this understanding in his approach to coaching.
Brett has been training with Craig, both in Sydney and overseas, for the last 10 years. They both share the same idea’s when it comes to training programs, for the elite or age group athlete.
“My dedication for coaching has stemmed from seeing close friends and family balance their commitments and training, achieve their goals and race with enthusiasm. I love being involved in the sport and my coaching has evolved from there. I have assisted some gifted athletes and we have had plenty of victories, however my biggest thrill as a coach is seeing athletes digging deep, not giving up and having a passion for being out there during training and on race day. This is my coaching philosophy and it centres around not just competing, but having the inner drive to give it your all and not give up. That’s what gets me excited about coaching.”
