Hi, my name is Gerrard and I am “Mr Smith”.

I work with all levels of adult athletes from first timers through to those competing at World Champs level. I coach people to achieve great results, and have a great experience along the way.

In fact that is a key part of my coaching philosophy – it’s not just about a training plan, it’s making sure you have the support you need to make the whole training and racing journey a great experience.

I offer individual coaching to suit different people, as well as:
– swim squads for the Wellington Triathlon Club
– training squads in Wellington for Half and Ironman distance athletes
– an online team for those who live further afield to stay in touch with others doing the same kind of training and events

I offer free phone consultations if you have questions or would like to know more – no strings attached
