PTC's Philosophy

  • Ensuring a safe, supportive and enjoyable training environment for all athletes is essential for success.
  • Consistently and systematically building athletes knowledge and triathlon specific skills is fundamental.
  • Rapport building with athletes is essential to maximise uptake of constructive positive feedback.
  • Supporting athletes to stay motivated and focus on both long and short term goals is essential.
  • Process over outcome.
  • Process leads to outcome.
  • Self-belief in athletes is vital and as a coach I actively support athletes to develop a positive sense of self belief and confidence to push their limits.
  • Recovery is essential and needs to be incorporated into programmes. The ability to stay healthy and uninjured is critical for success.
  • Athletes need to be taught to listen to their bodies and share post work-out training logs to maximise training success and progression.
  • The right training environment and correct guidance is essential to support athletes to develop determination, drive and selfmotivation.
  • Triathlon is a challenging sport requiring hard work across three disciplines. Mental toughness is key for success. Knowing athletes and what makes them tick is critical to developing their mental toughness and ability to challenge themselves in all aspects of the sport.
  • Educating athletes to conduct themselves in a professional manner, abide by the rules and regulations of the sport at all times is core business.
