COACHING PROFILE:

Originally from Canada, I've been living overseas for more than a decade. I'm the current head coach Qatar National Triathlon team, & coach online athletes of various abilities around the globe. I still compete sparsely to stay active & in touch with what I preach. My coaching approach is pragmatic, progressive & individualized. I emphasize that my athletes don't follow my programs - but rather, my programs follow my athletes, according to their objectives, physiology, psychology, & feedback.

ATHLETE PROFILE:

I started triathlon in the fall of 2000 after being inspired by Simon Whitfield’s victory at the Sydney Olympics & Peter Reid’s win in @ The Kona Ironman World Championships a month later. I have been living & breathing triathlon ever since. I come from a strong swimming background, with The Island Swimming Club in Victoria, British-Columbia. During this period, I trained regularly with eventual 2 X Olympic Medalist (1500m freestyle) Ryan Cochrane.

I was a resident athlete @ The PacificSport Canadian National Triathlon Center for 4 years. As well to represent Canada @ 3 Junior Elite World Championships. I then spend 6 months training @ The High Altitude Training Center in the Kenyan village of Iten, with some of the top runners/coaches in the world. Soon after, I turned pro with TeamTBB & achieved top 5 performances in officially sanctioned  ITU, 5i50, 70.3 & Ironman events. The highlights were winning an ITU Long Distance World Cup, being ranked 14th in the world in the ITU Long Distance rankings @ the end of 2008, & finishing 2nd @ the Laguna Phuket Triathlon (The Race of Legends) to the then reigning Olympic Champion, as well to future Ironman World Champion, & world record holder, Jan Frodeno.

I started coaching in 2009, & have been doing it full-time since 2013. I've trained various corporate age group teams for on-going years, as well to an elite development team for 4 years that was sponsored by Alaska Milk Corporation, & National Team athletes for the Philippines & Indonesia. Then over the years, I have organized, promote, hosted or co-hosted training camps in Spain, South Korea, The Philippines, & Malaysia. Recently I was the head coach of The TriClub Doha in Qatar, with 400+ members.

Performance aside, I work with numerous age groupers who are simply looking to live a healthier lifestyle, stay injury free, enjoy the process/races or even follow a walk/run program. I believe that the greatest positive aspect of triathlon is that almost anybody can do it, and into very late adulthood!

I use the popular online training software TrainingPeaks to organize/customize my athlete's day-to-day schedule & Garmin Connect to monitor their activities. I'm also a regular user of bio-feedback for: swimming - cycling - running. As well to enjoying discussing a simple, healthy, & logical approach to general/sports nutrition.

NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENTS AS A COACH:

-Qualified Elite athletes to The Asian Games
-Asian Beach Games & South East Asian Games from The Philippines or Indonesia
-2014 AsiaTri Coach of The Year
-12 Kona IM World Championships Qualifications
-11 Elite National Champions (Off road – Short Course – Long Course) from The Philippines or South Africa
-Top 10 elite or junior elite athletes @ The Asian Games, Asian Triathlon Championships & Asian Duathlon Championships
-3 Boston Marathon qualifiers.

WHY I WORK WITH TRISUTTO:

I trained under head coach Brett Sutton as a pro triathlete between 2007 & 2013. His training philosophies are a major component of my coaching approach. As well to what I learned while training/living during multiple/extended training camps with top triathletes/duathletes, that included ITU, Ironman, World, & Olympic Champion athletes.
