On a personal level, I have been racing triathlons for the past 12 years. I started doing them as an Aussie rules player, who could barely swim 50m and had never ridden a bike. During this time I have taught myself to become a competitive triathlete, through many mistakes, being exposed to different coaches and methods and much trial and error. Over the 12 years in the sport, I have raced all over the world; the U.K., Europe, America, Asia and all over Australia, with a personal best Ironman time of 9:10 and a bronze medal at the 2012 Long Course World Championships!

This broad experience has given me a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to progress in the sport, what works, what doesn’t and how to get the most improvement possible from the time you spend.

“I am very passionate about having quality in everything I do and am very excited to announce a partnership with Torq Australia. My experience with the products has been only positive and the research behind the products is non biased and speaks for itself!”

  

Background:

Alex is heavily involved in triathlon both on a personal level and also professionally as a physio and coach. Living primarily in Wollongong NSW, somewhere that Alex believes is the “perfect training ground!” Alex has been working as the Australian Elite Team physiotherapist for 6 years, having the opportunity to travel with the team to Europe each year, this year going to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow with the team. 

This experience, as well as other professional opportunities, have given Alex an awesome opportunity to work alongside numerous world renowned coaches and work with the worlds best athletes. This has given Alex a unique insight into the key elements leading to high levels of performance and personal success. Alex is also a monthly writer for 220 Triathlon magazine, having written for them for the past 18 months. 

Alex has also been coaching people in triathlon & running for over 10 years, across all distances, from Ultra races to track, and professionals to novices. In the past 3 years Alex has developed the business AP10, a coaching & technique analysis business. AP10 now includes 5 coaches and over 60 athletes all across Australia. 

Alex has been serious about his own racing over the past 10 years as well, with an Ironman PB of 9:10, a bronze medal at the 2012 Long Course World Championships and a recent age group win at Ironman Japan. 

“I feel very fortunate to have a profession that brings together what I love to do as a hobby! Between the juggle of sports physio, technique analysis, coaching, my own personal training and racing, my life is pretty much engulfed by triathlon! I love working and training with people who are passionate about life and also about sport.”

Ever since studying Physiotherapy degree 12 years ago, Alex has had a special interest for biomechanics, the ‘ART’ of how people move. This, aligned with a passion for sports science and its application to the sport of triathlon, has gradually directed him to working with athletes of many levels, from Olympians to novice athletes. 

Alex has also travelled to the USA several times to complete further study in the field of triathlon. This gave him the opportunity to work alongside some of the world leaders in the field:

• He studied further in bike fitting (at slowtwitch in California)

• run biomechanics

• sports nutrition

• and wind tunnel aerodynamics.
