"Training for Triathlon in Timor Leste"
I have known Ray Boardman for many years, primarily as a Physical Training Instructor in the NZ Army, but more recently as my Coach for Ironman. After completing three Ironman events, I learnt the hard way that I needed a Coach and actively sort out Ray. My interest in Ray as my Coach came after my third Ironman, where he was actively looking after his clients, and on the same token saw me and identified I was struggling. I wasn't one of his clients simply an Army colleague, but whilst he kept a watchful eye on his clients, he also provided encouragement to me, which he didn't have to do. It was through this commitment he showed, that made me actively select him as the Coach I wanted.
Ray is a committed Coach who provides a training program for the Clients goals, but manages the program around the clients work and family commitments and unfortunately the injuries that one may pick up along the way.
As a Coach, Ray can not only talk the talk, he has walked the walk, and has many endurance events and multisports events under his belt that he has completed as an athlete. My ultimate goal is the three day endurance event of, Ultraman Oz, of which I am interested in one Coach only, Ray Boardman from Qwik Kiwi. I have no hesitation in recommending Ray to any client and thoroughly enjoyed working with Ray as my Coach, of which he provides valuable feedback (I am sure it wasn't easy for Ray to Coach someone for an Ironman with the limited resources available in Timor-Leste).
