Thrive Endurance is coaching with a difference

We take a fully holistic approach to what we do.

Our aim is to make you the healthiest athlete you can be.


Have you ever asked yourself one of these questions?

  • Why is it when I have been training harder am I not racing faster?

  • I think I am fit, but is this diet/lifestyle healthy?

  • Every time I race I have stomach problems from nutrition.

  • Can I get the same results with a healthier approach?


If you have, then Thrive Endurance might be for you.

Why just train when you can THRIVE!


You are What You Eat

At Thrive Endurance our coaching philosophy is to maximise health and performance. A healthy athlete can produce constant quality training through the Thrive Endurance Training Plan which is based on achieving your goals by building the foundation blocks, which in turn reduces the chance of injury due to achieving fitness goals step by step, rather than overloading the body with training that it simply cannot sustain.

Performance is analysed regularly and realistic goals are set, so the athlete can feel accomplished with their performance.

Goals are discussed with the athlete and training plans are set with the lifestyle of each athlete considered. It takes commitment to achieve your goals, and Thrive Endurance is here to help you stay motivated and on track to be the best you that you can achieve, there are no shortcuts to success.

A Quote for You
Coach Jason

Coach Profile: Head Coach Jason Shields


Coaching Philosophy: Over the 10 years I have been involved in triathlon, I have seen many athletes come and go due to injury and burn out, all with plenty of motivation and big dreams. My philosophy is to work with the athlete and teach them that the old school NO PAIN NO GAIN training is a thing of the past.


My mission is to help athletes learn how to become fit as well as staying healthy for a sustainable future in the sport. There is no quick fix or short cuts to success. You will only get out of the sport what you put in. Take the time, set the foundation from the start and reap the rewards in the future years to come.

What do you Love about the Sport? Ever since the day I retired from footy and entered my first team in triathlon I have fallen in love with the sport. I love the challenges the sport brings in racing and training. I can’t imagine ever doing anything different and now I’m lucky enough as a coach to see the same passion and love for the sport in my athletes.


What inspires you? Ever since starting the sport, I have had the motto, if your dreams don’t scare you they’re not big enough. This is what inspires me every day to do what I do, no matter how big the goal or challenge I set is. Anything really is possible if you can just convince your mind to believe it.


Coach: Chris Pye


Coaching Philosophy: I believe that nothing separates us from our dreams but work, sometimes hard work, sometimes smart work. The personal challenge is what drew me into endurance sport.

Everyone can find their own personal challenge at their own level. With patience and guidance, the journey for beginner to an experienced athlete or from the middle pack to the front can be an enjoyable and satisfying experience. During my time in the sport I have travelled down the wrong road at times and now share some of my learnt lessons with others. To allow athletes of all fitness levels to progress and work with their specific training needs.
