Zara Guinard – Pro Triathlete, Coach and Nutrition Specialist

I love sport! Over the years I have done Ballet, Tap, Gymnastics, Swimming, Running Softball, Basketball, Water Polo, Skiing, Snowboarding at surfing, I’ve tried it all. But of all the sports I have done I have always been drawn to the ones that are both individual, and endurance focused. The goal of being 100% in control of the outcome has always appealed. The more effort you put in the more you get out. However if you are new to a sport there is always so much to learn and sometimes its easy to get lost or feel like you are going around in circles. The old phrase "If you don't know where you are going, all roads will take you no where" starts to feel very real.

Over my career I have made many of those mistakes and learned from all them, I have also had some of the best coaches in the business to guide me. I can honestly say that great coaching is so much more than just a plan, it is a comprehensive guided vision for the future.

I have raced at state championships in both swimming and running on highly successful teams throughout my years of schooling and have raced internationally as an Elite Triathlete for the past 4 years. I understand that everyones dreams are different, but if you are reading this then it shows you have already taken the first step, turning those dreams in goals.

Now the hard part begins, taking those goals and making them happen. It doesn't matter if your goals are nutritional or sporting in nature, finding the right coach is the first step to realizing them.

Please take a look at what I offer both from a nutritional or endurance coaching perspective and if you have any questions feel free to reach out to me free of charge and with no pressure to commit. I understand what it takes to take the leap of faith you are about to make and I realize it can be a daunting prospect. Be assured your dreams and goals are as important to me as they are to you and your success and happiness in sport and life is of the upmost importance to me.

Coaching Testimonial

I have been involved with both the coaching of athletes and the education of coaches for more than 20 years and during this time have seen many great coaches come and go.

I have always been impressed with Zara's ability to work with athletes both from a program development point of view as well as in a personal one to one capacity. I am always impressed with her attention to detail and genuine warmth and empathy towards everyone she works with and is close to.

It is for these qualities that I asked her to coach with us here at Vanguard Endurance. If you are looking for a fantastic coach I cannot recommend Zara more highly.
