duathlonnationals2In the one year I have spent under Matt’s tutelage, I have improved significantly as an athlete in all three sports. He brought me back safely from a major operation; his workouts continuously challenge me but always show me that I can do more than I thought I could. He’s incredibly flexible with my schedule and attentive to changes. Most importantly, he continuously lands me on the podium!! I’m really happy with my progress! – Jenn Finn





Matt is a not only a strong source of motivation but also an insightful and enthusiastic coach with a great sense of humour. It’s a lot of fun training with him. Since working under Matt’s guidance, I’ve broken several PBs, gained confidence in my ability as an athlete and became more addicted to triathlon than ever before. – Agnes Ferenczi





I have worked with Coach Liz for the last 2+ years. These past two years have been my most successful in triathlon mainly because… Liz rocks! She gets that triathlon training is important to me but at the same time I have to balance the sport with my other “adult” responsibilities. I have two kids and a husband with a very unpredictable schedule and she makes my training work within these parameters and I have seen more gains incorporating her approach than I have with any other previous coach. In the last two years we’ve gone from just having a baby to ITU Age Group World Championships. She continually checks in on me and several times has talked me out of tears over a bad series of workouts. Knowing I have her support and trusting her with my training has created a great relationship. She is a coach to listen to and learn from and a coach who goes out of her way to help her athletes be successful. – Becky McMorries


Of all the things that go into achieving results in triathlon, great coaching with a wealth of experience and knowledge are definitely the most important.  Having a coach who doesn’t just ‘write workouts’, but works the whole process from training, to recovery, to racing, to advice, to goal setting, to actually having raced the courses is HUGE!  For me, having a custom tailored plan that strikes a healthy balance between my family life and triathlon is key and Coach Matt has delivered on that.  His efficient and smart approach to purposeful training fits perfectly with my lifestyle and training time.  The workouts hurt like hell sometimes, but working with Coach Matt towards the goals we have set is worth it and believe it or not it’s also fun.  I mean, who doesn’t like riding a bike, running and yes,, even swimming.  Results???.. Multiple PRs, multiple podiums, overall wins, and two consecutive IM 70.3 World Championship qualifications.  And were not done yet, not even close! – Ben Williams
