Born in Cape Town, South Africa Andy Brodziak practices what he preaches: having competed in the Hawaii Ironman World Championships in 2009 and 2011, he’s coached numerous age group athletes to Sprint, Olympic, Half Ironman and Hawaii World Championships.

He grew up competing in sport but only started late as a triathlete in 2000 being inspired by SA Juniors of the likes of Brad Gale and Conrad Stoltz.  Not coming from any natural talent he has had to work consistently year upon year to achieve some great race results and most importantly learn from all the mistakes he made before Heart rate monitors and Power meters were around!

Being mentored by Ben Bright opens up loads of insight into the art of training and racing, most importantly applying the knowledge in the real world.

Combining a holistic approach with his unique mental strategy, Andy’s focus is on getting the very best out of his triathletes, no matter what level of expertise they begin training from. Benefitting from a Corrective Exercise (CHEK) background, allowing him to tailor his training techniques to better suit the individual needs of his clients, Andy’s focus on nutrition, injury prevention, resting and maximizing individual potential makes him perfect for novice and experienced triathletes alike. Andy thrives on taking on athletes who hold down regular jobs and families – he is proud to help people achieve the seemingly impossible and enjoys nothing more than assisting budding athletes in realising their goals while ensuring that the training process is as much fun as the rewards.

Andy is a Level 2 BTF coach, with experience in injury prevention and is insured for exercise prescription alongside his training plan.
