JK Endurance is a triathlon coaching service here to help every athlete reach their potential. With over 20 years of teaching and coaching background, I have come to the conclusion that the key ingredient to success in endurance racing is simplicity and consistency. Every athlete takes on the challenge of triathlon for different reasons and my goal is to apply the principles of training to let you enjoy the journey and go after those goals.
I am a lifelong athlete that transitioned from a 4 year Division I wrestling career into endurance sports. Years of running marathons led to triathlon which I have been racing competitively for over 15 years. My hard work and dedication to the sport of triathlon has brought me from the middle of the pack to many overall wins and World Championship qualifications including the Ironman World Championship in Kona.
Over 20 years of teaching and coaching high school students has allowed me to develop an effective coaching style that prioritizes the coach/athlete relationship. Writing a good research based training plan is important and part of my program but the real growth will occur when the athletes commit to the process.
I take my role as an endurance coach very serious and offer the following commitments to my athletes:
*Build a season training program based on the fundamentals of simplicity and consistency
*Training plans posted to TrainingPeaks on a weekly basis
*Unlimited file reviews
*Timely and unlimited communication via TrainingPeaks, Email, Text
*Race plan and race day nutrition advice
*Post race review and reflection
*Compassion and consideration for life outside of training
