Client Mike competed in the Noosa Triathlon this afternoon, raising an amazing total of $10,500 for the charity 'Beyond Blue'. This was Mike's first attempt at a Triathlon, which involves a 1.5km Swim, a 40km bike ride and a 10km run to finish! Mike began training with me for the triathlon 4 months back, and this is what he had to say:
"I have been training with Paul for almost one year now. More recently I signed up to compete in the 2017 Noosa Triathlon. Teaming up with Paul to prepare for this triathlon was a no brainer. In my opinion a good coach should have all of the qualities as a good teacher. This is what separates Paul from other personal trainers. Paul clearly understands the strengths & weaknesses of his clients and can effectively communicate how to build on the strengths and address the weaknesses. I know Paul does not just rely on his experience to date and is always proactively developing himself further so he can continue teaching his clients the latest in strength training and nutrition. Thanks coach Paul for helping me get strong and 110% ready for my Triathlon!!!"
Congratulations to Mike on completing the Triathlon in a very respectable time of 2 hours and 48 mins & more importantly raising so much money for a very good cause.
