Mark's belief is that talent only gets you so far, ‘Grit’ is the key to success - it requires persistence and resilience with a focused goal. Grit can be developed over time in a supportive environment with a mentor who can provide leadership and guidance. To achieve your potential in Triathlon, you can develop Grit through getting feedback and continual learning. Mark enjoys sharing his knowledge of the sport and providing guidance and support to help athletes reach their full potential.

ELT Taryn.jpeg



TARYN has been involved in Triathlons for 10 years and participating in running events up to marathon distance. Taryn has participated in all distances from Sprint to Ironman - including 6 Ironmans, 18 Half Ironmans and 4 Marathons. 


Since joining Energy Lab Triathlon in 2018, Taryn’s skill development has improved immensely resulting in some noteworthy results: 

  • Triathlon Australia Accredited Foundation Coach

  • National Champion Olympic Distance (35-39) (2019)

  • 3rd Ironman Australia (35-39) and 4th Female amateur overall (2019)

  • 1st Springfield Marathon female winner (2018)

  • 3rd female Park2Park half marathon (2018)

Taryn believes firstly you must have fun - some sessions will test you mentally and physically but ultimately we have to have fun.  Secondly, she believes one of the key factors, often overlooked, is confidence - your ability to fully believe in your ability to achieve your goals. You may have all of the ability in the world but without confidence, you won’t have the belief to “shoot for the stars” and “step outside your limits”.  



ELT Lisa.jpeg

Coach - Beginners


LISA competed in her first Triathlon in 2012.  She got involved in Triathlons as a result of having to stop playing Hockey due to injury.  Doctors said to her "either fuse your foot or stop playing hockey" - so she chose Triathlon!

Lisa is a Triathlon Australia Accredited Foundation Coach and focuses on the Beginner / All Abilities and knows how to go from Beginner through to Ironman 70.3.  She balances her love of Triathlon with a corporate career.


Lisa focused on sprint Triathlons until 2018, as she could not swim very well due to needing a shoulder re-construction, which she got in mid 2017.  She went full steam after that - racing in her first Olympic Triathlon at Noosa in 2018, then her first Ironman 70.3 at Western Sydney three weeks later. 

Lisa has inherent Grit - she chooses a goal and focuses on achieving it.


6:00pm - 7:30pm

The swim sessions are Triathlon specific where we focus on  technique and open water swimming skills. 


These sessions cater for someone new to swimming who wants to complete their first Triathlon, through to those who are more experienced and want to improve their technique and open water swimming.

The Bike sessions are designed by Gleeso who has 30 years of experience riding and racing bikes. The key focus of these sessions is group and individual riding catering for all abilities through to experienced riders. 

The sessions are conducted at Nundah Crit Track which is only open for cyclists, allowing us to target specific sessions without the risks of riding on the road.

The Run sessions are open to all abilities with everyone starting and finishing together.  It is a coached session where you will receive feedback on your running technique.


Tuesday Run is a Threshold session  which is designed to improve run pace and running off the bike. 

Thursday Run is an Interval Session - the focus of this session is on improving your run speed and efficiency.


There is a broad range of abilities at these sessions and they are open to everyone.

Brett's Wharf Ferry Terminal, Hamilton

BRICK (Bike + Run)

5:30am - 6:30am

The Brick session is designed to be race specific and improve the transition from Bike to Run.  The format of the session is to improve the transition technique, mount and dismount.

From a performance perspective, we also do intervals which are designed to improve speed. The bike is non-drafting to teach everyone to maintain the draft distance. The run is typically at race pace.

During the Triathlon season the Brick session is one of the most popular, as it is fun and high energy!
