The journey that you must travel as an athlete and as a coach is a special experience that I love, to observe an athlete’s journey as they progress through their goals is a privilege.
I just love the process of coaching and working with athletes and other coaches to help support people to reach their goals. The journey that you must travel as an athlete and as a coach is a special experience that can’t get enough of, being part of an athlete’s journey as they progress through their goals is a great privilege.
I’ve been involved in cycling since 2006 initially through mountain biking. Right from the start I was hooked, so I was soon racing throughout NSW on and off the dirt. I’ve competed in numerous enduro MTB events such as multiple SCOTT and MONT 24hr races so I understand what’s involved in training and racing these events.
Throughout my senior years at The Scotts College I was heavily involved in rowing and competed in state and national championships. Living in Sydney I started also racing on the road and using the dedication and commitment I’d learned in rowing helped me progress to racing A grade and in the National Road Series. As a level II coach, I’ve coached rowing at the elite schoolboy level. I’ve also coached cycling groups and been involved in racing teams through my involvement with a number of leading Sydney bike shops.
I’m in the process of completing a university degree in Exercise & Sports Science and I love that I get to continually developing not only my knowledge of the human body and physiology, but at FTP the opportunity to translate this into real results for people.
Angus's Rider Testimonials
Angus have been my personal coach since the middle of 2015, after a great recommendation from my ex manager and colleague in Rapha Asia.
Angus have been my personal coach since the middle of 2015, after a great recommendation from my ex manager and colleague in Rapha Asia. Even though the FTP Training program is conducted via the Today’s Plan platform, and us being based in different parts of the world (me in Singapore, and Angus in Australia), he makes it a point to communicate with me frequently either via email or Skype to check on my wellbeing and if the training program that he has mapped out for me was effective.
My busy work schedule meant that there are times that I needed to reschedule or reorganise my training sessions, and Angus have always been very helpful and quick in assisting to adjust and fine-tune each session to accommodate me. Angus is also a great motivator, encouraging me to participate in local races or overseas events, to keep pushing my limits higher. Along the way, he has helped me to become not just a stronger rider, but also in how I can maximise my rides more efficiently to aid in my training. In a simple sentence, he has taught me to get rid of junk miles.
I look forward to continuing my partnership with Angus. If you’re looking for a coach to help you to become a better and stronger rider, I highly recommend him.
