I have been a competitive athlete all of my life. I have been coaching adults and juniors for over 10 years.
My goal for all my athletes is to have them reach the start line at their mental and physical peak. It is essential to maximize an athlete’s training time while minimizing physical and mental stress. Many things going into the creation of a personalized training plan including the athlete’s goals, experience, strengths, weaknesses and life limiters. Along that same line, education an athlete is extremely important. I encourage athletes to ask questions and provide honest feedback.
As an athlete, coach, wife, and mother I understand the importance of finding a healthy balance between family, work, and training. I realize that life does not always go as planned and that training plans need to be flexible. Having a coach that can revise training plans as needed to ensure that training sessions are as high quality as possible is important.
