Why KI Coaching?

KI Coaching is a husband and wife coaching team, formed to combine our skills and knowledge acquired during 30 years of sports participation and coaching … and, just as importantly, to combine our working and personal lives.

Following a couple of years of a series of significant life events and external pressures affecting all areas of our lives we recognised a need to train and live in a holistic way in order to achieve work, life, relationship and sporting balance.

On reflecting on people that we have worked with in our coaching, we see a common thread amongst a number of individuals who demonstrate or experience a lack of true balance in pursuing sporting goals with family and life commitments. We want to be able to use our personal and coaching experiences to help you to achieve balance and success as you strive to achieve your goals.

So KI reflects our initials, Kate and Ian, but ki is also a word which reflects our coaching philosophy. Ki can be defined as the circulating life energy that is thought to be inherent in all things. The balance of negative and positive forms in the body is believed to be essential for good health. It is the balance of training load and type with rest, the balance of dietary and lifestyle choices, and the balance of mental as well as physical health which bring a sustainable success to an athlete.

Our coaching philosophy is aimed at helping you achieve this balance of participation or performance success in sporting goals as well as in life generally.
