OUR COACHING TEAM
BeUrBest Camps was founded by highly skilled, experienced and passionate coaches Terry Bates and Tom Frearson, and their understanding of how to develop people on an individual and group basis is second to none.
With nearly 30 years of combined experience, they have a great understanding of how to properly structure a training program to help you to achieve your own personal goals. They understand every athlete is different and has a different set of skills as well as strengths and weaknesses.
Our Coaching Team is made up of expert Triathlon Coaches and Personal Trainers to ensure your experience is challenging, engaging and tailored to your goals.
Because our lead coaches are athletes themselves, they understand athletes better and are able to empathise with your needs and wants. They will not only help you maximise your training time but will help you improve on your weaknesses and manage injury risk by eliminating unneeded junk training kilometres.
If you're as passionate about the sport as we are and you want to raise the bar to BeUrBest, then we can offer the training and triathlon experience to set you on your way.
