About Us

This coaching programme has been the idea of Jose Luis Fowler (who's children attend Baradene and Sacred Heart).  Jose is coached by one of New Zealands top Triathlon Coaches (Walter Thorburn) and has himself completed 10 Ironman triathlons (New Zealand, Western Australia, Malaysia, Canada, France, Lanzarotte, Port Macquarie, Melbourne and Hawaii twice) as well as a series of half ironman distances and in both 2012 and 2013 competed in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, he is also the verteran of over 20 long ocean swims, so fully understands the demands of triathlon.  
  
After coaching Baradene Year 7/8 cycling team for two years and the Baradene Triathlon Team since 2012, he achieved the following successes (with some very impressive National  and North Island Titles).

Following the above successes Jose is now also coaching kids from St.Peters, Sacred Heart, Botany College and Kings College as well as a few other schools.  As a coach he is not affiliated with any school or Triathlon New Zealand, his coaching services are performed with school knowledge and assistance with training facilities, but ultimately whom he coaches is at his discretion.  He works closely with the schools and passes his recommendations for team and individual race selection to the school who ultimately have the final say.
