“As everybody knows the times to try and qualify for the Hawaiian Ironman are becoming harder and harder to achieve each year.
After my 4th time trying it was now or never so I looked into acquiring a coach. In June 2010 after speaking to Jarrod for the first time I totally believed I could achieve anything if I put in the hard work. Time constraints with work and a young family meant that I needed a very personalized program to utilize all my available time.I knew after my first lead up race under Jarrod that we were on the right track. I achieved a personal best and this set the tone for the rest of my training leading up to my qualifying race in New Zealand. I went onto achieve my ultimate dream and qualified for the 2011 Hawaiian Ironman in 9hrs 10mins and 5th in my age group. The level of support and guidance leading up to and during the event was exceptional and exceeded my expectations. I can say without hesitation that without his knowledge I would not be about to live ‘the dream’” Adrian Little – Hawaiian Ironman Triathlete.
