Laura Harris

I have been competing in Triathlons since 2008 over a range of distances from sprint to Ironman, as well as competing in running and cycling events. My passion and dedication to training has lead me to achieve many age group podiums, compete at World Championships, and the opportunity to train in the NSW Endurance Development Squads, whilst working as a PDHPE Teacher. I enjoy the endless opportunities and challenges that Triathlons have to offer.  

I began writing programs in 2009 whilst working in the fitness industry for a range of athletes. I have had the opportunity to assist with the coaching at women’s camps and Team Ward camps over the years. I enjoy the interaction of coaching athletes from a range of abilities and ages, by helping them to achieve their goals.
