HELPING TRIATHLETES MEET THEIR TARGETS AND ACHIEVE SPORTING SUCCESS

Absolute triathlon beginners find that their fitness levels improve dramatically with little or no coaching. When general fitness levels are low, almost any kind of training will improve conditioning and performance.

Long term improvement is achieved through following a structured training program, planning and goal setting. Multisport Consultants have been involved in helping many athletes, young and old, achieve sporting success and more importantly meet their self imposed targets through developing enjoyable programs that build towards long term success.

Please find a brief collection of case studies and testimonials below;

Triathlon Testimonial - James HinchliffeTriathlon Testimonial - James Hinchliffe
After completing Ironman Australia in 2008 in a time of 9hr 54min, I found myself with the opportunity to head to Kona to participate in the big one. Given this is the pinnacle of Ironman triathlon, I wanted to compete in the best shape I could possibly be in. I contacted Nick where we discussed such things as goals and strategies for the race and my current commitments to work and family. The end result was a structured training program that challenged me physically but allowed time for commitments other than training. The first check I got, as to how the training was going, was at the Yeppoon Half Ironman. Nick had incorporated this race in the build up to Kona. I had done this race once before, however this year I went around 15mins faster! Things were looking good and on track for the main goal in October.

I finished the Ironman at Kona in a time of 10hr 09min, only 15min slower than Port Macquarie. As far as I am concerned that was a great result, one that I attribute to the smart, challenging and structured weekly programs from Nick. The training programs worked perfectly for me and I couldn't recommend a better way to prepare for an event. I look forward to working with Nick on the next campaign, whatever that may be!

Triathlon Testimonial - Steve Pratt
Since my first Ironman in 1990 when I recorded a time of 9hours 32mins, I have been trying to go under 9 hours. I read every book on training methodology I could get my hands on and trained as much as 700km a week on the bike and 130km a week on the run, but the times didn’t get any faster than 9hours 27mins. I new it was time to bring on professional consultation. Australia certainly doesn’t have a shortage of great coaches. After a lot of thinking I went with Nick Croft. His 22 week program sent to me by email saw me quickly recording regular PB’s with a lower mileage base and a more solid structure than when I coached myself.

I completed this year’s Forster Ironman in a time of 8hours 58mins. An improvement of 30minutes, probably more when considering two things: the race was non wetsuit, and I stop twice on the bike to retrieve lost gel flasks.

I have found Nick’s approach to be very friendly, personal and intuitive, something afforded to him no doubt from his years as one of the worlds best triathletes, coupled with his knowledge from years of coaching juniors, pros, and age group triathletes. Nick helped me achieve the best race of my life and I encourage anyone looking to improve their performance to join his program.

Successful triathlete coached by Mutlisport Consultants at Ironman AustraliaTriathlon Testionial - Louise McNulty
Who would have anticipated a 40 min course PB and an age-group placing after a two year break from Ironman competition. My coach, Nick Croft and I achieved this at the 2004 Snap Printing Ironman. A great listener, Nick always responded constructively to my feedback and subsequently, developed my programs with an individual approach to my requirements. Training variety eliminated boredom which assisted me to maintain focus throughout my preparation. Great training with you Nick, and I look forward to continuing our teamwork and building upon our results.
