No two athletes are identical. When training begins, we identify goals, analyze strengths and weaknesses, both functionally as well as in your sport, and create a plan that is designed around you, your lifestyle, and your aspirations. Entelechy Coaching was inspired by an Aristotle philosophy which means actualizing potential. When an athlete finds that realization of his/her abilities, only then can they surpass their limits and do something great.
My name is Pat Casey and I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. My wife, Heather and I moved here 2 years ago in pursuit of actualizing our dreams by living in the mountains, growing new roots in coaching, and racing bicycles. I am a Cat 1 rider for Canyon Bicycles-Shimano, and recently left my position as full-time bike mechanic to race, coach, and perform bike fits full time. I realized last year that my racing and coaching at a semi-professional level needed 100% of my time. Incidentally both of these occupations seem to benefit one another tremendously. My coaching career began primarily working with cyclists. 6 months ago, I started coaching triathletes as well and shortly thereafter became certified as a USAT Level 1 Coach.
As an athlete, your sport must be fun to train for, compete in, and ultimately succeed in. Endurance sports require a tremendous amount of mental tenacity, sacrifice, and discipline. This is where coaching plays an integral role in helping to reach one's goals. Through TrainingPeaks, coaches and athletes together can manage time, balance activity with real life, and despite the tough times in training and racing, keep the sport fun and engaging. I have been incredibly fortunate to learn from some great coaches, and now spend my time putting those lessons to work with my athletes.
Aside from my activities listed above, I also enjoy spending time with my wife and 3 dogs, drinking coffee, and making people laugh.
