Athlete Information Form



I have been coached by many throughout my expansive sports career and Eanna is by far the most intelligent, committed and caring coach that I have worked with. Coming into triathlon from a swimming background, I initially wanted Eanna to help me with my bike and run, but I never expected to see such improvement in my swim stroke, speed and race strategy. I would love to see more people benefit from his coaching!

“Eanna’s knowledge of the science and art of triathlon coaching to produce the very best outcomes for his athletes is as broad and deep as you could find anywhere at the highest level in the sport. The level of commitment he brings to helping athletes be the best they can be would be very difficult to match.  Over the past four years, I have felt incredibly lucky to have access to such a coach and environment and achieve the greatest successes of my sporting lifetime. ”
