“I am 55 years old. I came to Tim 2 years ago , I was sedentary, weighed in at about 170 kgs and to put it mildly was a sloth, a fat one. Tim has supported, motivated and managed my fitness and still does. In the time I have been training with him I have lost 60 kilograms, have done sprint triathlons and have bigger things planned.
Tim has not only been my coach but has become a close friend too. He genuinely cares about you as a person and strives to help you achieve your goals. He kicks you in the bum when you need it and calls a spade a spade.
Tim is a coach that leads by example, he competes himself and even participates in events with you. He gets you to think about why you are doing things, he shows you the reasons why you do things, the benefits of them and celebrates the gains with you. Tim’s sessions change to reflect your needs and goals for example we do strength work over the winter and then build speed and endurance for race season. Tim’s training evolves along with you. If your goals change or you need to develop another area, then the plans and workouts change to reflect those.
I cannot recommend Tim enough, he’s seen me through thick and thin and has never lost faith in me. You can’t ask for much more than that from a trainer and coach.”
