Triathlon Coach / Weight Loss

Tim Ford turned his life around with triathlon, losing over 50 kg, becoming one of the top athletes in his age group, and is now helping fellow athletes succeed in this complex sport.

Working with a wide range of athletes, Tim has excelled with those starting out in the sport as well as those moving up in distance or seeking PB’s. His athletes exceed their own expectations by completing events they never could have dreamed of — ironmans, 70.3s, Olympic distance, marathons, half-marathons and everything in between.

Through structured triathlon training and basic nutrition, Tim has helped athletes lose weight. His athletes have achieved PB’s in excess of an hour at the IM distance and over 30 minutes at the 70.3 distance.

Tim personally knows what it is like to go from fat to fit, from slow to speedy.

“I was literally the slowest athlete and have had to work very hard for a very long time to get to the level that I am today. I do not think I make a good coach because I am a fast athlete. I think I am a good coach because I have lived every step of the journey from being unable to run to winning races.”

With a background in personal training, he has enhanced his triathlon-specific knowledge under experienced mentors as well as Ironman University certification. He works with each athlete individually to understand what their goals are and how best to help them achieve what they want to do.

In addition to triathlon coaching, Tim also offers weight loss coaching, monitoring nutrition to help you start you own weight loss journey.

"I understand exactly what my athletes are going through when they are hurting, when they feel too heavy to run or too unfit to ride -- or even too unhappy with their body to wear swimmers and jump in the pool."


“Coach Tim and the MX Endurance community took my Triathlon to another level, after having no previous coaching I went from a long way back in the pack to podium over the standard distance along with an Ironman 70.3 PB of 4:33. Tim knows how to get you to your true potential!” — Jarrad from Australia
“Great coach, even better bloke! I have seen gains I couldn’t even of imagined since working with Tim” — Steve from Australia
