I am an NCCP as well as IRONMAN U certified triathlon coach with over 20 years coaching experience. I have been around high-performance endurance as well as skill based sport my entire life. For the past 10 years I have guided many athletes to achieve their best whether at local races, 70.3 and IRONMAN events and at World Championships.
Masters swim coach for the last 10 years
My philosophy is to develop a realistic training schedule that fits in each athlete’s life. This also must be fun and enjoyable. A coach much strive to find that balance of training and recovery, while including the many other aspects of life, that allows the athlete to achieve their goals.
Besides coaching, I am a top AG contender in all distances of triathlon having competed in Ironman, 70.3 and XTERRA World Championships. I really believe that participating in the sport as an age group athlete makes me a better coach. It gives a more in depth understanding of how to balance work, life and training. I have experience with all distances of triathlon in every type of condition, and know how to fit the required training in with limited amounts of time!
Physiological adaptation, nutrition and seasonal planning are all founded on scientific principles, but I also have years of competition experience in different sports to draw from, as there are many aspects of racing that you don’t find out or appreciate unless you are there.
