Coaching Philosophy For Triathlon

Over the 10 years as a Triathlon coach, I have been involved in triathlon, I have seen many athletes come and go due to injury and burnout, 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 stay 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.

If Your Dreams Don't Scare you, They are not big enough

 

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.

Triathlon Coach Chris Pye

Coaching Philosophy For Triathlon 

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 sports.


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