Cassidy Shaw

Online Run & Tri Specific Coach

Cassidy grew up running from a very young age. He was running at a national level from age 10. His mum (Susan Hobson) who is a 3 time olympian in Distance running, always encouraged Cassidy to enjoy all the aspects that running brings.


From age 10 to 18, Cassidy ran both track and field and cross country at an elite level, being a junior national medalist in the 1500 and representing Australia at the World Schools cross country championships in 2016. He has an understanding of what it takes to achieve the goals you set yourself. 


As well as running, Cassidy has been a professional triathlete for the last 4 years. Travelling and racing around the world, competing in multiple world class races. With this comes a knowledge of the kind of cross training that can be incorporated into a program to make you a stronger athlete. He has been lucky enough to work with and under some of the best athletes and coaches in the sport, being guided by Craig Mottram for many years. With this Cassidy has also worked as a coach at a school level in Melbourne. In both Athletics and cross country, not only allowing kids to experience the sport, but also enjoy it along the way. 


Cassidy holds 3 key philosophies when it comes to training:

1. You always have to have fun with it,

hard work is made easier when you love it. 

2. Consistency is the most important factor

to achieving the results you are after.

3. Patience is your best friend,

Goals worth achieving do not happen overnight.
