SARAH HUNTER – ASSOCIATE COACH

Our biggest challenge isn’t someone else. Its the ache in your lungs, the burning in your legs and the voice in your head that yells ‘can’t’. But you don’t listen, you push harder and then you hear that voice whisper ‘CAN’ and you discover the person you thought you were is no match for the person you really are.

I have been involved in sports from an early age – from national junior level squash and competitive windsurfing to a 20 year passion for all things cycling. I have competed in Ironman triathlon, numerous multi day mountain bike stage races, TTs and cyclocross. Having a degree in Statistics I also have a passion for numbers and analysing the data that can be collected on an athlete to enable them to train smarter and reach new levels of performance.
I coach because I love cycling, I love helping people accomplish their goals and I love being part of the FTP team, using the most up to date training methodologies to enable athletes achieve the best they can possibly be.
I am also a certified Personal Trainer in Perth, it is great to use strength and conditioning protocols off the bike to help cyclists become stronger and faster on the bike.!

SARAH'S RIDER TESTIMONIALS

Michael Warr

I have always set my own training plan for an event. The results have always been mixed because of my knowledge and only being accountable to myself. I knew this had to change for my next adventure. With FTP and Sarah coaching me I know I have a totally tailored plan that can be changed in an instant due to health and life commitments. Read More..

The results have always been mixed because of my knowledge and only being accountable to myself. I knew this had to change for my next adventure. With FTP and Sarah coaching me I know I have a totally tailored plan that can be changed in an instant due to health and life commitments. The other super important part is that I know that there is always my coach looking over my shoulder to both encourage me and when needed give me a kick along. Finally and I love this, with FTP you get the Todays Plan scheduling software calendar that shows your progress and it makes it easy to track how you are going against the plan. Thanks heaps </p><br /> </div><br /> </div>

Hi Sarah, Just thought I’d give you the run down on how it went yesterday. In short, had a great time and felt well prepared. Finished in pos 234 out of 1008 and was very happy with that. Read More..

In short, had a great time and felt well prepared. Finished in pos 234 out of 1008 and was very happy with that. Leading up I thought that if I could finish in the top third I would be over the moon. Was getting a bit tired toward the end but at no point did I feel overwhelmed. Nutrition was pretty good, could maybe have eaten a little more but had enough in the tank to finish strong. Hydration was good. The water stops made that easy. In short, the training obviously worked 🙂 <br><br>Thanks for your guidance over the course of the program.</p><br /> </div><br /> </div>

<div class="fancybox-hidden" style="display: none;"><br /> <div id="elizabeth-nathan-info" class="client-info-wrapper mixed-after-h4"><br /> <h4><strong>Elizabeth </strong>Nathan</h4><br /> <p>“I really enjoyed Sarah’s training program for my 110km Gran Fondo event in the Clare Valley, South Australia this year. Today’s Plan software was easy to use, and Sarah’s program was very achievable within a busy full-time work week. The flexibility and customised plan really added to the enjoyment as I felt confident I could sustain the training demands right through the 4 months or so leading into the event. The increase in strength and fitness was really noticeable and I was amazed that it could happen with such enjoyable training sessions. The event itself was particularly challenging with extreme heat and strong head winds but despite wanting to give up many times during the event, I was physically able to finish it. It was a great sense of achievement. Apart from a touch of sunstroke that evening and general tiredness the following day, I had no muscle soreness at all-a huge testimonial to the training program Sarah had given me. Sarah was always warm, engaged and very knowledgeable in all our communications.”</p><br /> </div><br /> </div>
