Troy Turner: Troy Turner - Testimonial

Stephen is my first ever coach outside of teams sports when I was younger. What a difference a coach makes and what a difference Stephen makes. I am certainly no “star” triathlete but Stephen provided me with programmes and advice that at times makes you feel like one. Stephen guided me through to complete my first Ironman in Taupo in 2014 and come race time I knew I was ready (although nervous about what lay ahead). Stephen additionally helped me take 30 minutes off my PB for a Half Ironman and similarly helped me a achieve a PB at the Olympic distance race all in the same year. Stephen will push you as much as you want him too and will support you in the same way. He is very accessible throughout the year and, when at your race, makes himself available to provide you with race day tactics and information that you money cant buy. I can’t imagine anyone better qualified to coach, being an athlete (former lol), former TRI NZ Coach and experienced coach in his own right and I feel very lucky to have connected with him.
