IMG_2243_copy1Mic Longhurst - Master Trainer, Head Instructor

Hi, I’m Mic Longhurst the owner and founder of Dynamic Motivation. I’m 53 years old and most of my life has been involved in some sort of adventurous activity. I have worked in the outdoors in climbing, rafting, kayaking, diving, bushwalking, mountain biking, and competed in a wide range of adventure sports.

I have a long history in Mountain Biking, I started racing in 1989 and have competed in every type of event including XC,DH, 4X, Enduro and Trials, with a number of podiums at State and National level across disciplines. I was coaching coordinator for CORC for 6 years and ran all of their coaching during that time. 

I have been running DM for the last 7 years and have Cert IV Personal Trainer, Cert IV Trainer Assessor, MTBA Level 1 MTB Coach, UCI Level 2 MTB Coach, PMBI MTB Instructor level 1 and 2 and I am one of 6 PMBI Instructor Trainers World Wide. With these qualifications and spending around 400 hours a year face to face instructing all levels from beginner to elite, adults and junior, makes me one of the highest qualified and most experienced MTB Instructors in Australia.

I have also been  running a successful Personal Training and Sports Conditioning business with a strong focus on Functional Movement and have very happy clients.

Hi I'm Dan ive been riding dirt since 2009. I originally started as it was a great way to hang out with mates but it soon became much more. My background os predominantly downhill, trail and enduro, however have occasionally dabbled in road riding. I have been instructing with dm since 2014 and have loved every minute. Being on the bike, helping people achieve their riding goals keeps me motivated and loving my work with Dynamic Motivation.

G'day, I'm Joseph and have been riding for the Dynamic Motivation team since 2012 and coaching since 2015. My focus is on racing Enduro however I won't shy away from downhill, or throwing the leg over the hard tail and going for a spin. I love coaching as it is a way for me to share my knowledge and passion with others, in the hope of them learning and developing new skills.

Hey I'm Duncan, I have been riding mountain bikes for the past 6 years. I originally started with Xc back when I was 11 years old. After a couple of stints racing Xc, I became aware of a new racing format called Gravity Enduro. I was instantly hooked and since then its become my focus. I have raced from a state level to national and even competed in the Enduro World Series. I occasionally swing my leg over the XC bike and Dh beast as well to keep things interesting. Being on the bike, working with kids and bringing smiles to peoples faces is my favourite part about working with Dynamic Motivation. I love working with people to accomplish new challenges while encouraging them to aim higher and exceed their expectations.
