Karla’s Story

I have a great love and passion for Triathlon with several years of experience competing in all distance Triathlons from Sprint to Ironman distance to Extreme Ironman Distance Triathlons.

As much as I enjoy taking part in Triathlons and Multi-sporting events myself, I find greater pleasure in helping people get involved in this fantastic sport. Which leads to great experiences and incredible memories, which is why I started KIKstart Triathlon Training in August 2015…Read More

What People Are Saying

I have been training with Karla for just over a year now. Her passion and love for all three aspects of triathlon is obvious. She is totally in touch with how you are doing as both a person and an athlete, and invests a great deal of time developing training programs and "checking in" to ensure that you meet your goals.


Take it step by step - you have the right people around you, you can achieve what you once thought was impossible

I started training with Karla 6 months ago with half iron man as a goal. I had never run 5 km never mind 21 km which is the distance for half IM. Karla has motivated and encouraged me and pushed me to be able to run 15km now. I am running my first half marathon next month and owe it all to Karla.


It does not matter your background, how old you are, what you have been through, you can compete and complete something amazing

"...the best part of Kikstart Training is being part of a team, where we motivate each other and often train together as a group. Karla also manages to keep us focused and challenges us by giving a new training program that suits us individually and pushes us on a weekly basis. Without her dedication and commitment, tri-athlon training would not have been half as fun as it is!..."

Tania Arnot

Anything worthwhile is never easy, we are not anyone special, we are just trying to be the best versions of ourselves

What Karla has done for my training and confidence I don't think anyone else could have done. Karla shows so much interest in my training, she even joins on pool swims to see how I'm getting along as well as organising group sessions with all her athletes. I haven't ventured into the longer triathlons yet but she never makes me feel any less important than the athletes that are doing bigger events. And if ever you looking for a role looking right at her xxx

Keep going, keep putting once foot in front of the other, you will get there

Karla is a true inspiration to all aspiring triathletes. As a complete beginner she has encouraged me to go from strength to strength. Starting with the really little triathlons to the bigger ones such as Ironman 70.3. She is always there for support and motivation and I couldn't ask for a better coach!

It is not about individuals it is about a group of people coming together to get to the finish line
