Kristian Manietta

Over the past 15 years I have helped hundreds of endurance athletes achieve and even greatly surpass their goals using methods both traditional and unconventional, all the while doing the same for myself across different sports (Ironman Triathlon, Ultra Running, Snowboarding/Skiing, Mountain biking and other endurance challenges).

I have been fortunate and have had the opportunity to talk shop,  train with and train a number of phenomenal coaches in different sports and also do the same with a number of top professionals and age groupers in endurance to get a thorough understanding of how they get good… 

"I've been coached by Kristian for years now. I hope for many more! He really is a rare find. Not only is he a wealth of knowledge on all things endurance and an amazing coach. His nuggets of wisdom on living life to the max, adopting an anything is possible mindset and helping develop grit and resilience. Dedication, discipline and persistence till your goals are reached. Having quality time with my wife and boys is hands down my priority, under his guidance, I really feel I have the right balance for everything in my life. All the while, loving my sport and getting some great race results at the same time. I can't recommend him enough."

Triathlons changed my life. My triathlon career was a journey of transformation for which I am so grateful. My daily habits, nutrition and self belief all changed. I loved the routine, looking for ways to be better and the camaraderie amongst my training partners.

My win in Busselton, Western Australia in 2007 in a record setting 9.00.55 was probably my career highlight. Yes, missing the 9 hour barrier by a slim 55 seconds! But honestly at the time that was not at all on my radar, just winning my first Ironman was mind blowing.


"I have been working with Charlotte for about three years and couldn't be happier. I have gotten faster and stronger, and my triathlon race results really show it. But, maybe more importantly, the races just feel better: the swims don't exhaust me anymore, and there's no more holding on for dear life during a painful, slow run. The training program can be challenging but, if you stick to it, you can guarantee that you will be prepared for whatever challenge is ahead. It is truly a rewarding experience. Plus, Charlotte is just a great person - truly engaged in my progress, totally understanding when life takes over, a great resource anytime I have questions, and just genuinely kind and funny. Charlotte is terrific and I can't recommend her highly enough."
