I coach endurance sports of triathlon, running and cycling. I love working with all levels, from empowering those new to the sport, to taking athletes to the next level by refining their sport to reach their full potential as an endurance athlete. Utilizing WKO4 for power analysis, and TrainingPeaks software to continually communicate, monitor and assess training.
I work with athletes not only to reach their goals for this season, but to become that best for years to come. In addition to a competitive IM athlete, I am a coach and director of a computrainer center, founder and coach of Girls Gone Tri club and also USAT, USAC and TPU Certified coach. As an athlete, I am a marathon'r and Ironman athlete.. and in addition to multiple podium and AG wins, have qualified for Ironman 70.3 World Championships four times. I also am married with 4 kids, juggling training and life is my second language!
Articulacy establishing and following correct intensities, zones and monitoring biofeedback is the foundation to success. Heart rate monitoring is key in understanding how you as an athlete progress and recover from each workout. I will evaluate workouts to understand how effective they are for you by monitoring the progression of pace/power and decoupling. True aerobic gains are made by balancing aerobic stress and adaption to recovery, the foundations of endurance sports. Making an effective race plan allow you to race not only stronger, but smarter to take your sport to that next level.
I take learning and education seriously, and love that it is never ending process. I am a USAT lvl 3, USAC lvl 2, USAM lvl 2, Swim Speeds Secret, WKO4 and TrainingPeaks lvl 2 certified coach. In addition, I travel frequently to spend time with the leaders and innovators of our sport to more to bring to my athletes every day.
