Here at PT Systems, we are all about getting the most out of our athletes, helping them to achieve national and/or international success across a multitude of sporting codes. We’d like to say we do a pretty good job, but don’t just take our word for it, hear what some of our star athletes have to say:
Sharlotte Lucas – Cycling
“I have worked with Marc Prutton @ PT Systems since 2011 and in that time have gone from being a local west coast age group rider to being able to compete against the top elite female riders in the world. He has given me the guidance to help me turn up to my goal races in good shape to contribute to my successes so far. Before working with Marc I was doing a lot of junk miles on the bike and often left my races on the training field. Now days I know I’m turning up fit and ready to race”. ( Sharlotte is now a NZ representative, the National Club Time Trial and Road race women’s champion, she placed 2nd in the Elite National road race, won Le Race several times, and has won Multiple Canterbury road race and Time Trial titles).
Brad Hudson – Mt Biking
“I have known Marc for the past few years and have been under his guidance in my chosen sport of high performance cross country mountain bike racing.
Marc has not only been an exceptional coach but he has been an excellent mentor and friend.
Marc is a very understanding person and with his vast knowledge of personal training as well as the skills and qualities of being a professional coach (including a Diploma in Sport and Recreation and a BikeNZ level 2 certificate) it is no wonder I took great pleasure in working alongside him. Knowing Marc has been a hugely positive influence on my life and I have no doubt that his athletes would say otherwise as he helps them to strive and excel in their goals and aspirations.
I highly recommend Marc in whatever his next step in life may be. Marc is a fantastic person and his kind nature will only be beneficial to whom Marc’s services are provided to next”.
Glen Currie – Multisport
I have used Marc’s coaching services for just on a year now. In 2013 I decided to have another crack at the Longest Day Coast to Coast, with a young family and a full time job I knew the chances of a podium position were stacked against me. To manage the stresses of work, family and training I decided to take the planning aspect out of my training and sort the assistance from Marc @ PT Systems. Marc was excellent he took all extra commitments into consideration and created a programme that was both manageable and effective. Marc worked with me on a weekly basis to keep the program fluid and relevant to how I was feeling. I found his programmes refreshing and actually got excited about opening my weekly plan to see what was in store.
Marc was prompt on returning emails when I had questions in regards to my training and was always willing and available to discuss training and the juggles of life when I required.
I am pleased to say with the assistance from Marc I managed a third place in the 2014 Longest Day Coast to Coast, 1st Mt Peel Mountain Bike Marathon, 2nd Big Day at the Office Race, 3rd Mt Somers MTB Race, 2ndPengzhou Longman Mountain Challenge, China, 1st Wulong Mountain Quest, China.
As both an athlete and a Physical Education Teacher I would fully recommend a coach for endurance sport as being just as important if not more as that new set of wheels. I would recommend Marc without hesitation to help you achieve your goals in endurance sport and would like to thank him for his continual assistance in achieving mine.
Sue Lazar – Cycling
Hi Marc, I just want to say thank you for the programme and results I got this season from your coaching and attention to detail. You built on the work you had done with me previously. You listen to how much or as is the case with me how little time I actually have for cycling and you made me make the most of every time I rode. You were never late for appointments and the programmes were easy to follow and well thought out. You encourage me to Club Race and on top of that you helped me achieve 2 National Age Group tiles in Cambridge this year, the results speak for themselves but without your help and guidance I know those medals would not have been possible, what more can I say but Thank You.
