Of course this transition to the higher levels where I need to/want to be is not achievable without the help of a great and dedicated coach. I would not be where I am today without the great coaching of Mark Bates. It is great to have him part of my team of experts to help me climb to the top and beyond!
There is not much that needs to be said about Mark since he is well known both in athletic accomplishments and also in coaching different levels of athletes.
Noa Deutsch: (Coach)
PT Performance Training
Noa has been involved in competitive sport most of her life, starting as a swimmer at age 5. She began coaching as a 16 year old, to help her swimming coach at the time, who taught her many lessons about coaching. This influence helped her learn about hard work, no excuses attitude, attention to detail and dedication. These lessons have shaped the way she approach coaching.
She is a coach, exercise physiologist, biomechanist, and sports nutritionist. She recently moved from Victoria, BC to Vancouver, which she absolutely loves for its great endurance community, fantastic local coffee, organic produce, the ocean & mountains.
Her all around experience in different fields related to triathlon as well as her innovative methods to approach training definitely shined in my search for bettering myself and taking that next step!
Dr. Nina Lange: (Naturopath/Superwoman)
Pacifica Naturopathic Clinic
Nina graduated from CCNM in 2002 as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. Prior to that she completed her undergraduate studies at McGill University. The funny thing is that all this schooling began at Irwin Park, the elementary school across the street from the clinic where a teacher asked her to draw “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. With patience and persistence, dreams really do come true.
