Strength For Endurance
Whether your passion is trail running, open water swimming or long course triathlon, everyone is looking to perform well; this season, next season and hopefully for many years to come.
But as an endurance athlete your training hours are long and your time is precious, so quality is essential. Gone are the days of going longer and harder, it’s time to be a smarter athlete.
Strength training for the endurance athlete goes way beyond how much you can squat. If you move poorly, you will perform poorly. The focus needs to be on building a resilient and efficient body that can withstand the demands of training and racing, keeping you injury free right to the finish line.
As a Strength & Performance Coach Kriss has worked with a multitude of sporting individuals, from casual weekend runners to Professional Triathletes. Immersed in the world of endurance athletes, this quickly became his forte and delivering the benefits of strength training to the endurance community, his main aim.
Before moving to Australia in 2012 from the UK, Kriss studied Sport & Exercise Science at the University of Chichester and more recently a Post Grad in Secondary School Teaching. He is a passionate educator who’s ability to connect with clients and students is second to none.
After moving to Australia with Kriss, Polly continued to pursue her athletic career and joined the Aeromax Team (Triathlon), based in Lennox Head. She spent 2013-2015 training and racing over half iron-distance races, progressing through the age group ranks and the making the decision to test herself amongst the professional field.
She has since stepped away from her own racing to focus on her other work, including developing The Strength For Endurance Network. As well as the network, she draws upon her degree in Sports Therapy for her work as a Massage Therapist and PT. Polly brings knowledge and valuable personal experience to the team, hoping to help others achieve their goals.
