Coach

My name is Toby,

 

I am an Austrian National, I was brought up dually British and Austrian. Speaks two languages English and German fluently growing up in the Tirol. I started skiing at the age of 3 and have been teaching/coaching in Austria for the last 36 years. In this time I have built up considerable experience of Coaching/training at all levels and many nationalities.

 

My teaching experience includes a number of ski schools in Tirol Seefeld, Obergurgl and Hintertux. The Austrian Alpine Ski Academy, Bundessportheim, in St. Christoph am Arlberg is a renowned centre of excellence, where the world class Austrian trainers and racers receive coaching. I am privileged to have been able to train at the exclusive ski academy Bundessportheim in St. Christoph am Arlberg.

 

Also during my training of my Austrian National Coaches License I was privileged to study at the Sport University of Innsbruck where I completed my Austrian National Coaches License.

 

I have been working as a personal trainer for the last 10 years in Austria and United Kingdom, during the summer months I work with both young people and adults to develop their over-all fitness and run a program specially targeted at preparing them for the coming ski racing season. Over the last few years I have increased my commitment to coaching high performance skills to both potential ski teachers and young racers from Britain and Austria. I am dedicated to helping you achieve your personal goals.
