HURT LOCKER TRI
ABOUT THE COACH
As an athlete I came to triathlon through a cricket background and immediately fell in love with the sport & it's hard work equals results ethic. For the past 6 years it has been my passion striving for success & improvement. A two time 70.3 Overall Winner, & currently with 8 Ironman finishes under the belt with many more 70.3 & short course races including being a 2 time Kona finisher.
Having been self-coached for the past two seasons the methods I use are tried & tested as well as continually tinkered for optimum output. Along with completing coaching accreditation courses & learning more from sports coaches within different sports. Through the usage of Training Peaks software I'm able to plan, analyse & prepare athletes to get the most out of them despite many having busy lifestyles.
Hurt Locker Tri is not about the coach & all about getting the athletes to reach their goals, whether that is finishing their first triathlon or to qualifying for World Championships.
"Before I came to HLT my cycling was all about survival each race - definitely my weakness, & I didn't enjoy it. Since working with Charlie & his squad he has got me relishing the bike sessions & turned the bike leg into a weapon on race day! All whilst still improving my swim, run & introducing a better body maintenance routine into my plan. This was the driving force behind knocking 45mins off my 70.3 PB at Western Sydney & going sub 4h30"
"I set my goal of breaking the 60 minute benchmark in the City2Surf having been unsussessful for the previous 4 years. Charlie gave me a clear, achievable and (at times) enjoyable 8 week program - I came home in 59.02 & was absolutely buzzing. Thanks Chucky"
"Charles started coaching me for triathlons in 2018. At the time I had been running for many years, but my longest swim prior to 2018 was 200m and I hadn’t cycled for well over 10 years. Within a matter of months he helped me achieve the impossible of a 5:30hr for my first half ironman in the IRONMAN 70.3 Geelong. Having had many wonderful coaches over the years, Charles had a high benchmark to match. Charles’ experience as an elite ironman, coupled with his thorough understanding of coaching techniques, excellent communications skills and flexible/ innovative approach gives his athletes the very best chance to achieve their potential. His contagious enthusiasm, dedication to his athletes and being an all-round top-bloke have made it a wonderful experience to be coached by Charles."
