My Coaching Philosophy

I coach because I love to help people develop as athletes in their sport and                 as people in life.            I am committed to continually search for ways to improve myself and the people around me. My aim is to build lasting relationships with athletes and fellow coaches and to create an environment of communication and sharing to help each other improve and grow as people. I aim to develop athletic abilities and sustainable life skills in all people I get to work with. I always strive to create a fun environment where everyone feels safe to express themselves to be the best they can be. Helping people be better in everything they do is why I coach.

John Allen - Multiple Group 1 Winning Jockey


​“Soon after I began training with Dean, I started to feel the benefit throughout my whole body. My overall strength and fitness have improved and I am feeling good both in and out of the saddle. I really notice the benefits after a long day riding at the trials or races, my body feels less tight and is now better equipped to deal with these demanding days.

Dean's sessions are always challenging and interesting and I highly rate him as a knowledgeable and professional coach”

Aiden Domic - Werribee Tigers Australian Rules Football (VFL)


​"I trained with Dean for many years and throughout my time spent with him I learnt an enormous amount in regards to my own fitness and the fitness industry. Deans ability to foster a people first approach to training combined with extensive knowledge in the field leaves both athletes and general population clients with the best chance of success. I would highly recommend Dean for anyone looking to see improvements in athletic performance, everyday life and mindset."
