Our very own Tri Chicks coach Kathy Miller is available to help you get to the start and finish line!  With a wealth of knowledge and experience, we encourage you to contact her if you're after one-on-one coaching.

Here's what she has to say:  "I'm not your usual super fit, fast, sleek looking tri coach. I’m a “back of the pack” athlete who struggles keeping weight under control.  I aim to fit my training into my busy life as best as I can, not the other way round. I have been competing in triathlons since 2005.  It all started with small women’s only triathlons & I worked my way up the distances and have now completed 9 half Ironman (6-8hrs) & 3 full Ironman races (15-16 ½ hrs), as well as many other swim, bike, run events. I am not fast, but I aim to be the best I can be & achieve my goals regardless of how long it may take me.

I have experienced the highs & lows of this sport and built on the mental training required to get to that finish line – it can be bloody tough sometimes, but it is always worth it.  I want to help you be the best YOU can be at any event you set your mind to. 

I am a Triathlon NZ Level 1 accredited Coach and have been coaching athletes since 2008.  I am on the committee of our local triathlon club & volunteer at events along with my husband & teenage boys. As a family we have completed some amazing races in amazing places & met some awesome people along the way.  Competing in events is an inspiring way to live.

If you are a beginner wanting to get started, or a “back of the packer” wanting to step up the distances but don’t know if you can or where to start, then I can help.  My aim is to teach you the most efficient way to train to achieve your goals. No smash fests or high tech gadgets & jargon; just the simple things done right.

So what are you waiting for?  It’s all in the mind… your body will do anything you tell it to."
