I coach athletes of all levels, specializing in time-constrained athletes who have become involved in endurance sports later in life. I try to deeply understand my athletes so I can help them make the best use of their time to reach their goals. I provide heart rate, power, pace or perceived exertion training ranges for athletes based on assessment of field tests & race data. My training plans are detailed and very personal. Specialties include long-distance triathlon, MTB & ski mountaineering.
My goal is to help endurance sports become as rewarding a part of an athlete’s lifestyle as they have been for me, drawing on my experiences starting from not being good enough for collegiate teams to earning national and world age-group championships in Olympic, Ironman and Xterra triathlon, trail running, duathlon and ski mountaineering. (I have completed 20 Ironman races, placing second in my age-group at Hawaii 5 times and winning my age-group in all my other Ironman races.) I have a Master’s in Exercise Physiology, taught Physical Education at West Point and commanded the US Army World Class Athlete Program.
I strive to provide value to athletes by guiding their training with scientific and experience-based practical insight — providing motivation and sometimes pulling in the reigns. I share my knowledge and experience with athletes to help them achieve their full potential, provide my counsel and support to their efforts, and help align their goals with their experience and available time. My coaching services are totally customized to your needs. My #1 specialty is meeting the needs of my athlete clients, especially working athletes, having risen through the ranks myself.
