    • Jeremy Roff, Australian Commonwealth Games Finalist, 1500m
      Ken has been a very influential part of my life especially through my progression as an athlete. I have been training with Ken since 2002 and improved through all levels of my running. His guidance and self belief in myself and other members of the training squad is the driving force behind our success, along with the specifically structured training program and group effect the benefits are always on going.
    • Jefrey Hunt, Australian Representative at World Half-marathon Championships
      Ken Green has introduced me to a theory of training i never would have considered. This training has taken me from being an average junior athlete to being one of the best open distance runners in australia. He coaches wholeheartedly, has a confidence in every athlete in his squad, and will do everything he can to help them achieve their dreams.
    • Bradley Woods, upcoming 1500m runner
      Greenie has a fairly traditional training regime, which has been proven to succeed. Greenie always challenges us with training and improving ourselves as people and athletes. He takes a keen interest in all his athletes no matter what level they are at. Greenie insists on a team-training environment while tailoring for the individual athlete. This helps us push each other to our limits. As a result we compete and achieve at high levels. Greenie's coaching style has been proven to get results as shown by results over the last 3 years I have been constantly improving. Greenie is more than a coach, he is a mentor, a manager, and a friend who wants to see the athlete get the best out of themselves.
    • Emma Rilen, Australian Representative in World Crosss Country and Ekidan
      Since joining the group in 2004 i have had the opportunity to compete for Australia four times, twice at world cross country championships 2005 and 2006. My achievements have been the result of not only the training methods that Ken uses but the way he incorporates a wholistic approach to each individuals program. He ensures that whatever it is that you are doing in your life is balanced by training, this has helped me as doing a masters degree at uni, working, and fitting in training, can at times be challenging and difficult not to over do it. Ken's dedication to the group makes it easy for us to be dedicated to the goals we sit down and set together and the hard work they require along the way. As a group we support each other and work together to allow each person to achieve their goals they are working towards.
