“Dave is a diversely knowledgable, generous and invested asset to any runner. He has the skills to push you at your best, but also the tools and kindness to get you through the challenges.“
- Anna Loughnan, NTHSIDE Runner
Sarah joins the NTHSIDE coaching team as not only an accomplished runner herself (she recently won the Australian title for the 24hr run, covering 183km) but with an impressive and highly-relevant professional CV that strengthens her coaching offering.
Sarah knows how to get the most out of runners who wear multiple hats. She herself is a mother of three, is a registered nurse and midwife, has a qualification in human nutrition, and works in the running shoe industry. She not only brings the real world experience of juggling running, parenthood, and work, but her skillset ideally places her to guide runners more holistically towards their goals.
Sarah's own love of running centres around the freedom and calm running brings her. These values shine through in the way she connects with her athletes. Not surprisingly as a nurse, she is compassionate and fosters strong connections with all her athletes.
With experience coaching runners of all abilities from the 5km, to the marathon and beyond, join Sarah on the journey to your own NTHSIDE.
Simon joins the NTHSIDE coaching team, having already helped countless runners over the past two decades in his role as a physiotherapist - from weekend warriors to Olympians. With an impressive running resume of his own - including a 2:42 marathon - Simon has both the professional expertise and personal experience to help you to your North Star.
As a highly successful business owner himself, and an incredibly present husband and father of three, Simon brings wisdom around balance and peak performance to the table that no coaching manual or physio degree can teach. Simon knows how to make runners feel better and move faster. And he's here to help runners achieve peak running performance, without compromising peak life performance.
With NTHSIDE's focus on community, Simon is a natural fit. His own love of the run relates to its capacity to connect. Simon still gets out every Sunday for a long run with his club mates, and still competes with them occasionally too. For Simon, connection and performance are inseparable, and few have such a natural capacity to connect and empathise as Simon does - everything you'd want from a coach.
With experience working with runners covering all distances from the track to the road, join Simon on your own NTHSIDE journey.
