Hi, I'm Melanie McQuaid

Coaching is More than Workouts

Coaching expertise is a combination of experience and education.  The best coaching helps athletes learn about themselves and what brings out their best performance. Implementing a process of learning an athlete’s abilities, needs, motivation and skills is part of what makes coaching successful.  

Athletes that achieve their potential learn to listen to their body and tune into what works for them. A coach is there to help them figure out what to do, when and why.

There are a variety of coaching options at MelRad Multisport organized by how much coaching time and decision making you think you need to be successful.

Whether you dream of a podium or of being that pocket rocket nobody expected to suddenly drop them – we are here for you.  All goals, aspirations and dreams are exciting potential to uncover.  You just decide how much accountability and feedback you need.  There are a variety of options to join MelRad Multisport.

What Athletes that Work with Me Say

I came to the triathlon scene with little biking and running experience and no prior swim experience. Melanie coached me from the bottom 20% of my age group to standing on the podium in 3 seasons with her coaching style that I understand. I live in Ontario with lots of local coaches to work with near me but I choose to work with Melanie in British Columbia.
Jason Pace
IM Athlete
Melanie has changed me as an athlete. I used to be content to “exercise” a lot and race by looking around and enjoying the scenery. She taught me to find the fierceness in working hard, the enjoyment in racing hard, and that it is pretty damn fun to get on the podium. She has made me see the value in being a balanced triathlete instead of relying on strengths. She also understands balancing a stressful job with training.
Alison Keple
IM Athlete
I’ve been coached for two seasons of XC mountain biking and XTERRA with Melanie. During that time I have gone from a “middle of the pack” XTERRA competitior to placing 6th OA amateur and 2nd in the 30-34 AG at the 2010 XTERRA World Championships finally to ITU Cross Triathlon World Champion. Melanie structured a program that balanced my work and home life with my desire to reach the highest possible level in sport.
Fred Smith
XTERRA Athlete
Having Mel as my coach this season was an incredible experience! As she states on her coaching page "if you want to put in the work, I will show you the way" and she did that plus much much more! She delivered me a detailed tailored training program. I found that she was constantly tweaking and updating my program to find a healthy, realistic balance between my work and home life yet pushing me to be my very best in all my athletic endeavors.
