A decade working with athletes has taken me on many journeys- from strength training in Toronto, to pain and injury management in Dublin and competing in Ironman events worldwide, the journey is far from over as I strive to make better athletes while continuing to reach my own endurance goals.
Working with athletes as they prepare for their endurance events has been a process that has developed for me over many years. Initially working as a strength and conditioning coach focused on athletes competing in running, biking or adventure races, my work life closely mirrored my own narrative as I was immersed in running, triathlon and endurance events.
After years of training hard (but not smart) I got injured - regularly!! This created a personal thirst for knowledge on sports and endurance injuries, why they happen and how can they be prevented.
When I became a Neuromuscular Therapist I committed myself to helping people with their injuries and strength and conditioning to get them back on track with training for their goals in running, triathlon and endurance sports.
My experience as a neuromuscular therapist combined with my own passion for running and endurance sports has inspired me to become a skilled and knowledgeable endurance coach. I develop training plans for individuals with their goal in mind. Together we can take a lot of the stress, fears and errors out of training for endurance events and enjoy the process.
Train smart, stay fitforlong!
