Head Coach, Drew Standish spent 6 years starting up and helping grow one of Brisbane’s largest Community Triathlon Clubs. Wanting a a greater one-on-one connection with a smaller contingent of motivated athletes Standing Start Triathlon was born.

In 2017 Amanda Moore joined our coaching ranks. Choosing Athletics Australia as her platform, she has added to her Level 2 Athletics Coaching Credentials by way of Triathlon Australia’s Development Coaching accreditation in 2016.

SST is about working with everyday athletes and turning triathlon information into knowledge, and that knowledge into application. We aim to be your coach, your conscience and your confidant as you tackle your triathlon goals. We apply the coaching value equation of:

Coaching = 90% communication + 10% theory.

How we build “Smarter & Stronger Triathletes.”

What is our approach and our objectives in providing personal coaching?

  • There are so many elements to put together a good triathlon preparation – managing recovery is one very important part!
  • We beleive to become an accomplished Triathlete you need to master running off the bike – particularly running long distances after a bike session.
  • At every phase of your training there will be low heart rate efforts – they are not only great for building endurance, but they also allow you to apply your form without damaging the body.
  • You will also become one with your paddles. 85% of your swim stroke comes from your arms and body position, only 15% comes from your kick. We focus a lot on excelling in that 85%, so pull bouy and paddles will often be the order of the day for solo sessions!
