Born out of the desire and passion to not just coach but to educate athletes of all levels to help them achieve their optimal per4mance while maintaining a balanced, happy and healthy life. We seek to work with highly motivated, driven and ‘performance’ mindset individuals who are determined to achieve their personal best – no matter what that looks like.

Our coaching and training programs are underpinned by the 4 key foundations of per4mance:

While focusing on our key drivers of success:

Every athlete is individual, therefore each program is unique, periodised structured  and designed specifically for each individual athlete based on YOUR goals, time commitment, training level and ‘life’ in general.

We take the time to get to know you as an individual and as an athlete, to gain an in-depth understanding to provide the most valuable program for YOU. Allowing you to achieve your optimal per4mance while maintaining a balanced, happy and healthy life.

Communication and knowledge is second to none!

“I can highly recommend Sarah for anyone looking for a coach in regards to running, cycling or triathlon. I’ve been coached by Sarah for about 8 months now and just recently was able to complete my first marathon and with Sarah’s guidance got to the start line fresh and injury free. My training was structured and Sarah was very flexible when work/life issues popped up, her communication and knowledge is second to none!”


I wanted to take my training to the next level !

“I’ve been looking for a professional coach for a while. I want to take triathlon to the next level, and while winging it is great in theory, it’s not really practical. Suffering overuse injuries and getting sick before races has made me realise if I want to take triathlon to the next level I can’t do it alone. I asked around and was directed to a few coaches, but I decided on CPC with Sarah. I think you need a coach that has been there, done that and that you can relate to. Someone who has started off with similar experiences and excelled past that to a really high level in the sport, that’s the person I want to learn from. Also the added benefit of understanding us females helps! I’m excited to learn and develop with CPC and get to that next level!


A holistic approach to training

“As someone who has really burned themselves out training, it was important to me to have a coach who looked at a more holistic approach and balancing training into our lifestyle, and supporting hormones, health and happiness.”


I love the variety and balance

“I met Sarah at a Triathlon camp in 2015. I have been following her ever since and made contact in 2019 to get her help me work towards a half iron man. I love her communication, understanding how my schedule works with kids, understands farming life and I love the variety and balance she brings to the programming.”


More than just a coach!

“I was introduced to Sarah when I did Busso in 2016. I liked her approach and I was keen to get started with a coach. Over the past five years I have had some work and life challenges and Sarah always takes this on board. She is more than just a coach as she recognises that life can sometimes get in the way and that coaching and training needs to be flexible. Sarah is a coach, at times a councilor and a mate. She looks out for all her athletes.”


I love the philosophy..

“I met Sarah at a previous Triathlon club and years later I was really impressed by this bucket of energy who had totally reinvent herself. I loved her philosophy and her realistic smart approach to training.”


I was searching for a tailored program

“I have been with a couple of groups (which I really enjoyed) but I was looking for a more tailored program to suit my needs and capabilities to help me progress and achieve my goal of completing a full Ironman.”


Couldn’t be happier

“Have known and admired Sarah and and the way she goes about her coaching for a while and when she moved to Echuca, I was glad to have a local coach that could tweak my old way of thinking to ring a bit more out of an ageing body. I only ever had remote coaches so to have Sarah close by to guide me has been great.”



Director & Head Coach Sarah Mulkearns (nee Grove) is a passionate, enthusiastic, genuine and hard working Coach – and athlete herself. She first started in the sport of triathlon in 2008 after a running injury. And after her first triathlon, like many, were hooked. It wasn’t long, and she was regularly landing on the podium in Sprint and Olympic Distance races, and in just a couple of years rose in the ranks to dabble in Elite Short Course racing. She then found her niche in long course racing and over the years has raced all over the country and overseas, including the Ironman 70.3 World Championships and the converted and much sought after Hawaii Ironman World Championships in her first Ironman attempt.
