I believe that coaching is a team sport. I prioritize knowing each of my athletes on a personal level first. From there we work in tandem to create the best formula to successfully achieve our objectives. Optimized performance comes through consistency, communication and a balanced, strong body and mind. I am committed to helping my athletes balance life’s demands in order to achieve their greatest athletic potential.
Creating a balance between athletic feats and real-life demands is the foundation of my coaching philosophy. Through attention to detail, developing individual mental strategies, nutritional counseling and open communication, my athletes and I work together to reach their utmost potential. By combining science-based training regiments, frequent communication, metric and power data synthesis, and life balance, my athletes and I create the most positive outcomes perceivable.
Grand Teton National Park was my childhood backyard, so I gained a healthy respect and appreciation for the outdoors! I then combined it with sport. College introduced me to bike racing, which I took to an international level. My coaching career began via snowboard and ski instruction, and soon after, with Carmichael Training Systems. Now years later an active lifestyle of fun and competition remains intact.
In addition to my physiological and tactical understanding, I thrive on developing individual psychological strategies to optimize an individual’s prowess. Daily I seek the opportunity to increase the number of success stories that I have been a part of. Always continue to seek improvement!
