We value all of our athletes and their individual goals. On this page we showcase Team Fluid & the improvements they have made on our triathlon coaching program

Anna Truong

This was my second season training with Fluid Movements. I started the season in November, feeling quite unfit after not doing much training over the winter and spring. Throughout this season, my work schedule was very demanding and I was unable to make a lot of sessions. Coach Steve was very flexible in adjusting my program to make the most what I could do...

Sarah McLeod

18 months ago I started triathlon training with the Fluid beginners squad, barely able to swim 25m, riding ok but not a lot of confidence or strength and wanting to improve running times after a couple of slow 1/2 marathons. I enjoyed the challenge of training and the support of coaches and others in the squad...

Gary Ryder-Robinson

My nickname is GRR given to me by Coach Foz and it really motivates me when he shouts it out on the boundary on race days.

Joseph Paterson

I got into triathlon in early 2015, having never trained with a group before. Training properly with a squad has dramatically improved my performance in all disciplines, and has also kept me injury free. When I find time outside of triathlon, you will find me either in the kitchen...

Kim Taylor

I've been training with Fluid for a bit over 2 years. After 20 odd years of being a couch potato I started running & riding socially about 5 years ago. I agreed to do the swim for a team at the Lorne Adventure race 2 years ago and so thought it was time to actually get back in the pool too...

Laura Armstrong

Laura Marie Armstrong has come a long way in a short time on Fluids Sprint triathlon program. The journey started with Laura completing a 6 week Fluid Beginner Tri course in January 2015. From there Laura has flourished on the Sprint program, under the watchful eye of Sprint Coach Steve Davis...

Lesley West

We couldn't be prouder of our girl Lesley - she came to Fluid via our beginners program and has improved in leaps and bounds. Just a few of Lesley's impressive results include many podiums in Duathlons and Triathlons around Australia, competing in the ITU World Duathlon Championships in October 2015, placing 4th in her AG...

Mel Atlee

I have always been involved in sport at a recreational level having both participated and competed in many different events ranging from mountain biking, Crossfit, surfboat rowing and running. Many of these have been endurance events where I was challenged, having to push both my mind and body to its limits...

Simon Barnett

About 3 years ago my mother, who is a very competitive age group triathlete, suggested after a number of fun runs that I try and do a triathlon.  Just like most people I thought this was well beyond my capabilities and all I knew about triathlon is that there was lycra involved...
