Coaches

B78 coaches are selected based on their experiences as an athlete and/or their coaching credentials. B78 coaches are Olympians, Ironman Champions, National Champions and seasoned veterans in their field. There is rarely a situation they have not experienced nor a mistake they have learned the hard way. Our coaches have unparalleled experience in their sport and this knowledge is passed on to our clients. B78 coaches are trained and deliver using specific systems to maximize efficiency, professionalism and consistency.
