Colin Izzard   CTS- Brevard

I graduated from Syracuse University in 1998 with a BS in Exercise Physiology and Biomechanics. I have in endurance coaching and strength and conditioning full time since 1998 and worked for CTS since 2003. I still love helping newer to the sport athletes get started and learn as well as finding that 1% needed to move up a step on the boxes for my professional athletes! It’s all a wonderful challenge and puzzle to piece together.

Bio

I graduated from Syracuse University in 1998 with a BS in Exercise Physiology and Biomechanics. After a short play with Physical Therapy schooling while coaching at Niagara University for the swimming team and strength and conditioning programs; I decided that I wanted to coach full time. From there I have served as the Head Coach for USA Swimming Teams as well as working at UNC Chapel Hill as a swimming and strength coach. In the early 2000’s I was racing semi-professionally off-road and coaching some cycling athletes and came across CTS and their internship programs. From there as they say the rest is history. I have worked for CTS ever since. I still love helping newer to the sport athletes get started and learn as well as finding that 1% needed to move up a step on the boxes for my professional athletes! It’s all a wonderful challenge and puzzle to piece together.

As a professional coach I find that there needs to be a marriage between technology and understanding of personalities. There needs to be a well rounded approach to coaching. The numbers mean little if you do not have a good working relationship between coach and athlete.

From a personal athletic standpoint I grew up swimming year round for USAS teams and eventually swimming at Syracuse University for four years. In the mid 90's I also began racing road and mountain bikes. I also raced at a Semi-Pro level regionally and at the former NORBA National Series.
