Charles believes that the athlete/coach relationship should be centered around the individual needs and wants of the athlete. Every athlete is unique and therefore should have a unique training plan based on sports science and best practices established by the experts in the field BUT tailored for their individual lives. A good training plan will fit into the athlete’s life as seamlessly as possible.
With 20 years of education experience as a middle school and high school Advanced Placement history teacher, Charles decided to bring his love of teaching together with his love of swimming, biking and running. His greatest sporting love is cycling. From BMX in the 1980s to road cycling in Chicago land in the 1990s to his first triathlon in 2000. He has always been involved in coaching throughout his adult life: basketball coach, spinning instructor, rock climbing instructor, history teacher and now a multisport coach! One of his greatest strengths has been to delve into a subject and absorb all there is to know about it so he can then teach it to others. With a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, he has applied this knowledge to creating individualized training plans centered around the athlete’s unique requirements. He is always learning and working towards making his athletes the best they can be. With his USAT Level 1, Slowtwitch Running and Ironman University Certifications he is ready to work with athletes of all levels, abilities and backgrounds. Other than triathlon, he also specializes in pure runners and cyclists. He is accepting new clients and can be reached at Charles@milehighmultisport.com
