My areas of expertise are road, gravel, CX and MTB, Ultra and strength/mobility. I offer coaching plans that include daily detailed workout prompts that include time, intensity, watts, heart rate, and specific description of the workout. I will also create a one time training plan for big events and I provide nutrition guidance. I coach all levels of athletes and specialize in athletes that have limited time to train and have to balance training with family, work and life.
I have been riding, training and racing for over 20 years. I am the owner and head coach of Beyond Category Coaching, LLC and the former head coach for DU.
I operate as a complete coaching program, and do not solely focus only on science. For instance, I do not overlook the components of “the game” of cycling vs. “the physiology project,” remembering that I am coaching athletes to race or achieve their specific event goals, not just to score higher on strength and lactic threshold tests. I have coached state champs, national podium spot finishers, RAAM finishers and the 2021 solo men's overall RAAM champion!
BCC exits to empower, challenge and motivate athletes to GO BEYOND! I use a Simple.Effective.Results approach to coach my athletes (ask me about this). Beyond Category Coaching believes in responsible coaching practices that center around long term athletic development and the teaching of athletes to self-monitor their bodies and minds. BCC guides athletes in identifying realistic goals and expectations for themselves while encouraging them to seek and accept challenge. BCC also emphasizes that the coach-athlete relationship is vital and a personal one and that the written training plan is less valuable without the trust between the coach and athlete.
