We have assembled some of Australia’s leading coaching experts to help you achieve your goals in running, triathlon or general fitness!

Our Integrated Coaching System focusses on three pillars of Front Runner Athletic development:

  1. Biomechanical Development– Overseen by our Coaches, Sports Science and Physiotherapy Team
  2. Physiological Development- Utilising our Integrated Front Runner 5 Pace System
  3. Psychological Development– Individual coaching, mentoring and in partnership with The Skill Collective.

Athletes on a personal programme with Team Front Runner coaches are tracked personally for the longitudinal enhancement of each pillar as we believe that without a balanced athlete, we have an unsustainable system for ongoing improvement and athletic excellence.

“Team Front Runner provides you with specialist coaches who draw on science, experience and support to help you achieve your goals” 

The greatest endorsement of our service is your trust. All our coaches specialise in specific disciplines to ensure you receive the very best personalised service and ultimately achieve optimal outcomes. By getting to know you personally through monthly face to face or Skype meetings and specialising in specific areas, our coaches gain cutting edge insights and ever growing experience to deliver exercise prescription and training advice that is trusted and proven. We highly value our client relationships and your goal attainment is our focus. Whether that goal be enjoyment and participation in sport, to beat a PB or compete at the world championships for Australia- we go the extra step to help you beat your best.

Drawing on the combined strength of an engaged and collaborative coaching and medical team, and a comprehensive knowledge of current research and sports science our coaches will use field or laboratory Performance Testing (*) of your current Anaerobic Threshold or Vo2 max to set your Front Runner Aerobic Pace Zones and then prescribe appropriate training sessions to make ongoing gains.
