Coaching Philosophy

"Any plan of action has costs and risks, but those are far
less than the costs and risks of comfortable inaction". ~JFK

Tranter Triathlon Coaching uses an evidence-based training program that reignites natural pleasure centers in your brain, that will enable your body to be stronger, limit injuries and to travel further and faster than ever before.

Through my experiences with Olympic coaches (Triathlon: Barrie Shepley, Canoe/Kayak: Dennis Green, Cycling: Aldo Sfalcin), elite athletes (Triathlon: Simon Whitfield, Lisa Bentley, Sharron Donnelly and Track: Gary Reed) and educators/researchers, I found nothing was worth having unless it involved tremendous work ethic, innovation and significant risk-taking. It was this belief that inspired me to create Tranter Triathlon Coaching.

Please be advised, Rob believes in quality programming with only a few disciplined, accountable, focused, passionate and courageous athletes. If you do not see yourself fitting this mold, come back when you are ready.


Physical adaptation to training can be interpreted online.  Four workout files are detailed below. Each provides a direct measurement of how the athlete is adapting to the training program.
