Why do you coach at MNP Community & Sport Centre?
I love to see athletes, especially young athletes, develop and train to be the best version of themselves and MNPCSC is the premium facility for both team and individual training.
What is your favourite part of Sport?
I love the confidence that people feel when they get stronger and take on challenges that they otherwise would have not considered. Sport is also one of the best tools for learning to excel through failure.
What is on your bucket list of challenges/races and why?
My personal challenge is to be stronger at 60 than I was at 40. Strength is one of the greatest predictors of quality of life as we age and I am going to age the best way I know how.
What super human power would you have and why?
My super power would be to fly so that I can get places faster. I have no patience for slow walkers or slow drivers!
How do you create the best coaching experiences for your athletes?
Coaching requires listening and I work with my athletes to ensure they feel heard. Only the athlete knows what is going on with their body and as coaches we need to respect their input and adjust accordingly. It’s not always about the win.
