Millcreek, UT , United States
I'm currently a pro mountain biker competing in World Cup competitions and marathon XCM events. My knowledge far exceeds my experience as an athlete, however. I have two academic degrees related to physiology and coaching and have been personally coaching athletes to achieve their goals since 2017. My academic knowledge allows me to produce science-backed plans while my personal athletic experience always me a personal understanding of what it takes to train and compete to achieve your goals.
I have a degree in both Athletic Training (injury prevention, evaluation, and treatment) and Exercise Science (sports physiology and coaching). I am a USA Cycling Certified Coach and a Board-Certified Athletic Trainer.
On the athletic front, I've been racing mountain bikes professionally since 2016, winning events such as the 2022 Leadville 100 and the 2020 MidSouth Gravel. I've represented the USA at the XCO Elite World Championship multiple times and I'm a 5x collegiate Cycling National Champion. Before becoming a mountain biker I raced triathlon for 11 years. I am a 2x XTERRA overall amateur World Champion and competed collegiately in D2 swimming, cross country, and track.
My coaching philosophy is centered around evidence-based practice and exercise physiology. I seek to use scientific knowledge to cater to the uniqueness of human performance and ultimately to reach your goals. My passion for knowledge and success transforms my coaching from simple workouts into crafting a progression built around each person’s individualized needs. I work hard to be able to back all of my philosophy with research and thrive on explaining the reasoning behind workouts.
Working with a new coach is entering into a fresh relationship. I want to get to know you as a person as well as an athlete. I will work to help you balance training with your job, family, and other obligations that life brings. If you are interested in investing in yourself and hiring a coach, please send me an email.
