Coach Stuart Payne


Hi, my name is Stuart. I am a qualified triathlon and run coach in Brisbane, Australia. When I turned 40 and moved from the UK to Australia, I was 94kg and lived an unhealthy life. I was constantly stressed and worrying about my full-time job, whether we would be able to settle in our new country and if we would fit in. This was an emotionally and overwhelming time.

At this point I joined a local triathlon club in Queensland to find some like-minded people and to pursue a hobby I had started in the UK. I approached this at full steam with commitment and hard work, trying to learn as much as possible about my new chosen sport.

I entered a few beginners’ races and enjoyed them immensely. I wanted to do more and became extremely passionate about racing and gaining further knowledge. Eventually, I entered the biggest event of my life, an Ironman triathlon in Cairns, and with total dedication to the plan set by my coach, I began my new journey.

I have been on my journey for over 15 years as a multi finisher of several long distance endurance events and a coach for over 8 years. In that time, I have become a qualified coach in triathlon, Ironman distance triathlon, a running coach, and a personal trainer. That’s when the idea for ReadyToTri – triathlon club for Brisbane and Australian athletes, was born.

Since coaching triathlon at my Brisbane triathlon club, I have helped many athletes overcome their own fears and inadequacies to complete their triathlon and run goals however big or small. I love sharing the joy and happiness of these athletes when they finish the races they have entered. It gives me an enormous sense of pleasure and pride knowing that I played a part in helping them to achieve their goal and change their life for the better.

I understand the demands of training for triathlon and running events. Whether you’re looking to race your first triathlon or improve your time at your next Ironman, complete your first 10k or marathon, I am here to help with my Brisbane triathlon club community.

My coaching qualifications include:

Triathlon Australia Development Coach
Australia Athletics Recreational Running Coach Level 2
Ironman Certified Coach
80/20 Endurance Certified Coach
TrainingPeaks Level 1 Coach
Qualified Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Coach
