Based in Fort Worth, Texas, I have been coaching cycling athletes who want to progress to the next level, whether that is Cat 5-Cat 4 or Cat 2 to Cat 1/Pro, I have athletes in all categories there and in between. I am primarily a cycling coach, but can and have coached triathletes who want to focus on cycling especially. I provide a detailed, individualized, progressive training program that will be challenging yet manageable no matter what level you are starting from.

A former high school chemistry teacher with an undergraduate degree in biology, I was a self-coached competitive runner on a sub-elite level for 20+ years before injuries forced a switch which led me to cycling.  Much of what I learned from the coaches and elite level runners I came into contact with as a runner has shaped my cycling training philosophy.  While different in many aspects, at their root both cycling and running are primarily aerobic sports and require a high level of aerobic development in order to excel.  Much of my knowledge has come from my own trial and error but much comes from scientific research which I am constantly keeping abreast of.  I believe that coaching is both an art and a science and requires a little of both in order to elicit the best performance from an athlete.  I also use WKO4 software to help individualize training schedules and of the opinion that all athletes are an experiment of one. Some of my own accomplishments are:

1/2 Marathon-1:10:08

Texas 50+ ITT Champion 2015-2017
Texas P1,2 TTT Champion 2016
Texas State Road Race Champion 2015

Athlete Requirements

I require a willingness to push the boundaries of what you are capable of which means that training will always be progressing. I also require that my athletes have a way of training with power.
