During Chris’ athletic career he’s had the chance to work alongside some of the greatest coaches and athletes in the sport of triathlon: Scott Molina, Dave Scott, Brett Sutton and Elliot Bassett just to name a few. Chris offers a very personal based coaching package and likes to work with motivated and driven people. He coaches athletes from all ranges of ability and age. He finds they all have one thing in common: driven to achieve goals. That may be to achieve the midnight cut-off, get a Hawaii slot, or for some, to dip under that magical nine-hour barrier.
“Each person has their own personality and habits. I feel it is my job to find your blind spots and help you improve, while also pointing out your good habits and further growing them. Too many people focus on their fast bike or run, all too often to falling short of their actual triathlon goal. I like to focus on triathlon as a sport in itself and develop an athlete to reach their goals in as a total package-from start line to finish line. If you don’t push your limits, you set your limits.” — Chris McDonald
