Shem Leong is the ironguides coach in Singapore. He has been hooked on triathlon since winning his age group at his first Olympic Distance race. Many top performances later, he still enjoys the challenges of training and racing at a high level, while balancing work and family. He is a firm believer in living the active lifestyle and loves being able to positively effect his athlete’s lives in this way.
In the 6 years that Shem has worked as an ironguides coach, he has helped 100’s of triathletes and runners achieve their goals. From newbies completing their 1st sprint triathlon, to 70.3 podium contenders and seasoned Sub 10- hr Ironman athletes, Shem’s attention to detail and care for his athletes sets him apart. He understands the heavy demands placed on age group athletes as well as the motivations that drive them and is able to craft sustainable, effective training plans for their time crunched schedules.
An Honors Degree in Health Science has given him the knowledge to expertly administer The ironguide’s Method so that his athletes understand how each session works towards their ultimate goal. As a result, countless PB’s have fallen away as his athletes get fitter and faster.
