At Optimistic Prominence, we are Always Looking Up! Join us for run coaching of any distance and any type, but especially if you like to go far and go uphill. We also coach for mountaineering adventures.
I have been involved in endurance sports for two decades! In my earlier years, I raced mountain bikes (and some road racing) competitively. These days, I still enjoy biking, but most of my time is spent either on foot or on skis, depending on the season. I enjoy a fast fun 5K as much as I enjoy an ultramarathon. Outside of competition, I absolutely love spending my big mileage days up in the mountains and in remote wilderness areas.
The primary goal for my own movement is pure enjoyment, and if your main goals are happiness and joy in movement, you will be a great fit as an athlete with Optimistic Prominence! We will definitely also work with you on more quantitative, qualitative, and results based goals, but happiness and health will always come first.
I also truly believe in personalized coaching. These days, especially with the availability of AI, it is very easy to find a general training plan and even have it sent directly to your wrist. With personalize coaching, we will always start with a basic framework to achieve your goals, but it will be constantly updated according to your moving fitness, goals, energy levels, time, and especially to make sure you are staying healthy and happy! A direct result of this means that you will only see one single price tier. There is only one version of my coaching philosophy, so there isn't a "lower tier" that would result in a less personalized training plan.
Join us, where we are always looking up!
