Ever wondered who the people are that run the TRIactive sessions? We caught up with Queen’s Park TRIactive Coach, Barb Augustin earler this week to find out why she loves coaching triathlon and TRIactive.
How long have you been coaching triathlon for? I’ve been a triathlon coach for over 15 years. Prior to that I was a snow skiing instructor for three years and also worked in sports administration (Victorian Ski Association) for a few years. In addition to being a triathlon coach, I am also a swimming, cycling and running coach.
What inspired you to get involved in TRIactive as a coach? I love introducing people to triathlon and helping people improve.
What drew you to TRIactive? It’s a fantastic way to get started in triathlon.
What are you most looking forward to about coaching TRIactive at Queens Park? I’m looking forward to seeing the smiles on the participants faces when they achieve something they thought was beyond them.
What would you say to someone who told you they were thinking of tackling the TRIactive program? Do it! Now!
