My coaching philosophy is based on effective athlete/coach communication. I believe effective coaching requires the athlete and coach to communicate on a very regular basis. I encourage my coached athletes to communicate via text, email, phone or face-to-face whenever needed. We aren't pro athletes with unlimited time to train. We all have other commitments families, children, work, school. Along the journey you will have an enjoyable and exhilarating experience training and racing.
I've always been a cyclist. I can't remember ever not riding a bike. Fast forward to 2004. I had just completed my Sports Academy degree in Hamburg Germany and was looking for a new challenge. Qualifications include USA Triathlon Level I, USA Cycling Level III, and IRONMAN Certified Coach. I'm very goal oriented and having something to work towards brings me great satisfaction. Moved to USA in 2015 "Get back into bike club rides and races," I thought. I was surfing bike race websites and came across websites for triathlon races. "I already have the cycling background. I swam some in high school. All I have to do is add the running," was my thinking. After my first race in The Colony TX, I was hooked. Triathlon is now my "lifestyle".
Since beginning my triathlon journey, I have completed 5 triathlon races placing every single race. If 10 years ago you had asked me if I would ever do an Ironman, I would have said, "No way. Never. Never, ever. I hate running. And I'm not running 26.2 miles." Today I enjoy running. Got my registration for the Wako TX for my first Ironman. Much of endurance sport performance is rooted in mental skills. I truly believe we are capable of more than we realize. I enjoy pushing my mental and physical boundaries and accomplishing goals I never thought possible.
