Kurt Braeckel

Seeking runners, cyclists, and triathletes who want to achieve athletic goals while managing the challenges of everyday life - raising a family, managing a career, and maintaining a busy household. I have experienced the challenges all busy athletes face when competing, and I can help you excel while training on a limited time budget. I can provide personalized training, technique coaching, mental skills, and honest, direct feedback to help you achieve your potential while managing your life.


I have coached and competed through the challenges many athletes face managing family schedules and full-time careers... and then some! Training for success in endurance sports as a busy adult requires not just excellent time-management and a good plan, but overall stress management. I can help! Work trips? I can help! Family vacations? I can help! Long-term military deployments? Yep, I can help!

I apply time-tested methods to help you achieve your goals based on YOUR needs, not the latest training buzz. We'll evaluate your goals against your constraints, and work together to develop the best possible solution to suit your needs. My services don't stop with planning your training; I can be your sounding board for your bad days, your champion on your good days. Together, we'll stay on an even keel. We'll keep you and your loved ones happy, all while pursuing your athletic dreams.
