Jeffrey W Gaura   Threshold Academy, Inc.

Coach and Author. I work with athletes with a specific event in mind.

All athletes start with a brief phone interview. I speak face to face or over Skype at least monthly. Workouts are scheduled a week in advance.

For those who want more than a coach but need "whole life" assistance for the family, my wife and I have a 4 day long "immersion experience" meant for the athlete and their significant other.

Linda's Short Version. Wife of an accomplished Athlete, and mother of two D1 athletes. Linda uniquely understands that demands placed on the family, work life and social life when the ones you love desire to excel athletically. She has a series of thoughtful strategies and teachable techniques to help the Significant Other (S/O) succeed.

Linda addresses the perception that the S/O of an athlete is a widow by helping the S/O best understand how they can be a positive influence and make a positive impact, while not just "go along for the ride."

More than half of the Immersion sessions that we conduct are lead by Linda as she focuses on nutrition, recovery, social planning, household management, and scheduling. Although seemingly rudimentary tasks, the observed tendency if for the S/O to "do their own thing," and allow the athlete to live independently. In some instances, the S/O is resentful of the time that their partner spends away from home. Neither of these approaches are positive and relationship friendly. She helps the whole family address their athlete's lifestyle choices.
