About Us

SYNERGY

image41

The combined power of a group of things when they are working together. 


The concept of Synergy is representative of the way we approach triathlon and our coaching style at Synergy Triathlon Coaching. 

OUR APPROACH

image42

We believe that effective triathlon training is about a series of workouts, rather than any single workout. Training is cumulative, and results flow from the sum of an athletes workouts over the course of their training program or training block.   


While triathlon is an individual sport, and requires much motivation, hard work and determination by our athletes to achieve the goals they have set for themselves, from our own personal experience we have seen that the greatest outcomes can be achieved through the combined effect of a motivated individual, a structured training program with a passionate & dedicated coach & undertaking training with other athletes who share a common passion in an inclusive, supportive & fun environment.  

 

We also believe that achieving a balance between training and an athlete's work, family and other life commitments is so important for effective training outcomes, and our coaches take all of these factors into account when designing training programs for our athletes.  

WHAT WE DO

We provide training programs and online coaching for athletes of all abilities and across all race distances.  


Whether you are a first-timer about to take on your first Sprint Distance triathlon or a seasoned age-grouper with goals to achieve a new PB or event to qualify for a World Championship event, we can provide a structured training program and online coaching to help you achieve your goals. 


 Synergy does not undertake squad training.  However, we are very lucky to partner with Wilston Grange Triathlon Club who run structured training sessions Monday - Friday should athletes wish to undertake some training sessions in a fun, inclusive and supportive environment.  See further below.


In our experience, undertaking training in a squad environment can bring many benefits for athletes.  Squad sessions are done under the watchful eye of a coach who can keep an eye on the technical side of your training. Squad sessions are fun & enjoyable, and training with others who have a similar passion is motivating, provides accountability & healthy competition, supportive & encouraging and often  great camaraderie develops among athletes.
