Coaching Philosophy: Athlete Centric. Athlete centric keeps the focus on creating customized plans based on the athlete’s goals, schedule, available time to train and abilities. My typical athlete most often has a family and a busy career.
" I believe that goals can be reached with the proper coaching while maintaining balance with family and job."
Significant experience working with athletes over 60 and those coming back from injury and surgery.
