"I have known Arthur as a driven, highly capable and progress driven individual for a while. Since January 2019, I have had a chance to work with him as my coach on my own IM70.3 journey. As a science-driven person myself, with a very hectic professional schedule and tough goals in sport, I have been very reluctant to work with coaches in the past. Coaches that understand personal needs and can fit the training progress within a constantly evolving everyday life are rare. However, Arthur quickly gave me a sense that he understands how active professionals need to be supported, and pushed. Additionally, his personalised and data-driven approach really helps to customise a relevant training program. Beyond the overall coaching, he is so far the only person that has been able to get me to work on my swim style. He has been able to isolate my issues and recommend actions to enable me to progress. I have all confidence that is the start of a very productive journey."

"I started working with Arthur back in December 2018 starting with swim analysis. Arthur quickly spotted my areas of improvement, performing a thorough analysis of my swim including underwater filming and CSS test. I have been impressed by his professionalism, a combination of excellent listening skills, very strong analytical skills and proven methodology from the best Pro coaches in the world. I asked Arthur if he could coach me as I knew he was starting his coaching business in 2019. I had ambitious objectives in the first half of the year with Ironman 70.3 Dubai on 1st Feb 19 and Ironman 70.3 Liuzhou on 14th Apr 19 trying to win a slot for Kona. I had only 3 weeks to train for Dubai, but that is life for us Age Groupers who are dreaming of getting faster but have to deal with the reality of life. For me, this is a family of four kids and a busy job covering the Asia Pacific region. Arthur provided a customized, well balanced 3-week plan which combined Strength work to prevent injury, lots of progressive anabolic work on the bike using smart trainer / Zwift and good run track sessions. Arthur’s knowledge of analytics using TrainingPeaks data is a real asset and reassuring for an athlete. I followed the plan scrupulously. On Race Day, the results talked: I smashed my PB by 8mins with a 4hrs 26mins time (Swim/Bike/Run: 33’/2'15"/1'32"). Elevate Performance Coaching has a bright future ahead and I highly recommend athletes who are looking for personalized coaching to join. Arthur gaves the attention I was looking for. Go Elevate Performace Coaching!"

"I may be a little biased but I would not have ever gotten into triathlon, much less crossed the finish line of the Ironman World Championships if it wasn’t for Arthur, who taught me everything I knew and constantly encouraged and believed me when I definitely didn’t!"

"Thanks to Arthur, I was able to see how I swam with his detailed swim analysis. I've always thought that swimming was easy for me until I saw how inefficient my swim strokes were. Arthur has the eye for pointing out what is needed to be improved on through video, facts and numbers. He explained and noted down the collected data, allowing me to understand so much more about how getting one little part right can lead to an even better swimming experience. Focused drills were also given to help me along. In sports, we tend to receive advice from everyone through their naked eyes. But this is real, no hear-say and time worthwhile. Definitely a wake-up call for me."
MARINA CHEN, 6x IRONMAN FINISHER
"Being a swim coach, I'm expected to be on top of my game with my swim strokes. I thought that I had hit a plateau and was unable to swim faster. Going for Arthur's swim analysis not only helped debunk that idea, but he also managed to catch on details which I could not even see. More often than not, many would have the perception that they have mastered swimming perfectly. This is when an extra pair of eyes with factual knowledge comes in handy. Arthur is able to literate with the collected data and proposes solutions to correct your weakness; simply put, a customized set to your needs. I can see myself improving further with his guidance. Definitely a 5/5 for me!"
BENJAMIN WEE, SWIM INSTRUCTOR AND 5x IRONMAN FINISHER
“I took lessons with Arthur to improve my intermediate level freestyle for open water swim triathlon. Arthur is passionate about swimming and teaching. He offers a lot of explanations and technical analysis — all of which are comprehensible through making concepts simple combined with practical tips. Importantly, he makes the sessions interesting and fun! Arthur was really able to take my swimming to the next level and I would highly recommend him.”
