CLARK ELLICE - TRIATHLETE, COACH, DAD, BUILDER & ALL-ROUND 'GOOD GUY'
Clark represented New Zealand as an elite triathlete for 9 years, and raced the ITU circuit. "My drive was simple, a true and real intrinsic motivation! I was fuelled by a relentless passion to dominate Male Elite level Olympic distance triathlon in New Zealand, and now by becoming a great Triathlon Coach and Personal Trainer, helping others fill their fitness goals however big or small they may be."
Clark is a people person, an influencer and big on practising what he preaches.
As a triathlon coach, his coaching methods are full of variety, he's big on making the journey fun, but won't skimp on what’s needed to help someone exceed their expectations on race day.
Clark currently balances 15 plus hour training weeks around a full-time building apprenticeship and a family with baby number 2 on the way. He takes on his very first Ironman race in Taupo in March, 2018. "I'm so keen to bank that Ironman finish line before baby number 2 arrives."

Nearly 10 years ago my neighbour suggested trying Off-Road Triathlon – Xterra - and I’ve been hooked ever since! The adrenaline and joy I get from mountain biking and trail running continually grows, probably why everyone says I’m always smiling out there.
