Supported Personalised Programs

Beginners to elite athletes. All race distances.

Des’ programs and coaching methods have achieved outstanding results Australia wide with many repeat clients from all corners of the country. Distance is no barrier.
A DGC personalised program is designed specifically around only the available time the athlete has to train. All aspects of the athletes work and family life are taken into account and no unachievable expectations are placed on the athlete, with weekly training loads or event outcomes.

With athlete input, programs are designed with a progressive overload and strategically placed optimal rest and recovery. This is all aimed at the athlete toeing the start line of their goal race injury free and in the best possible condition to achieve their desired outcome. Program training sessions use both scientifically backed methods and internally designed sessions based on proven results. With no two athletes being the same, the entire program is open to continual adjustment with ongoing review from results, feedback and athlete input.

All of the above is backed by continued guidance and support by Des. The athlete has unlimited contact with the coach for any reason for the duration of the program. The athlete and the coach become a team.

I started training with Des in February of this year, the first thing that attracted me to Des was his cool, calm and kind nature and his other athletes were so welcoming and I knew instantly that I wanted to be a part of his team.

My first race under Des was Cairns 70.3. His first task was to ‘accommodate’ my lifestyle. I’m a mum to 2 young kids, a husband in the defence force who is away for months at a time, I have no family support to rely on, and I’m a part time nurse. Des took all this into consideration and came up with a plan that suited my needs, whilst getting the best possible outcome for me as an athlete. I took a whooping 32mins off my previous 70.3 event, I went into the race injury free, comfortable and I knew I had done all the work i needed to do to have the best possible race. I really did have the best race ever, it was fast, event free, but most of all, it was FUN!

I have already recommended Des to many of my friends and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone else. I’m proud to fly the DGC flag and love being part of Des’ crew.

Having completed an Ironman and 3 half Ironmans under the guidance and coaching of Des I have learnt an invaluable amount about endurance triathlon and also a lot about myself. Des adapts the training around my inconsistent casual work life while still managing to fit in rest and recovery to suit endurance training.

Des has an immense wealth of knowledge and has formed a great triathlon ‘community’. With Des constructing my personalised race plans I know I will always be race ready when required. I will certainly be back for the future events.

Having been coached by Des for the last 3 years since getting involved in triathlon, I couldn’t recommend Des Gooda Coaching highly enough. Not only is Des excellent at getting the results you wish for, he is also a very supportive coach and tailors programs to your individual needs.

Being a shiftworker with no consistency in my roster, I was hesitant about my ability to fit in a proper training load. Des has continuously managed to work around this, personalising my programs for events ranging from sprint, through to full ironman distance, allowing me to get the results I desire, but also feel comfortable with training load and life balance.

Frequent communication throughout programs has been excellent, allowing for any adjustments to be made if necessary. Weekday squad sessions held by Des Gooda Coaching have also helped me greatly in improving swim technique and general swim/bike/run fitness, in a supportive environment among other likeminded people.

So thankful to have discovered Des Gooda Coaching early on in my triathlon journey, thanks again Des!
