Charlottesville, VA , United States
I am a Level 1 USAT triathlon coach, certified in both long and short course coaching. I have competing in triathlon for 19 years and even competed successfully at the 70.3 World Championship level. I have coached a variety of athletes including beginners who couldn't swim 25 yards and others with no bike experience. I promise, I will get you successfully to the starting line and help you complete your first triathlon, and for the more experienced athlete, I'll help you get faster and fitter.
I think one of the most important qualities in a coach is to listen to the athlete, and to motivate. Everyone goes through ups and downs in training, a coach is there to get you through it and to be your best. The best coaches that I have known have pushed me hard, but cared deeply. It is important to know your athlete, and to be adaptable to how that athlete learns best.
I have been coaching triathlon for 10 years. It is truly something that I am passionate about. I love working with athletes of all levels and all ages. My clients have ranged from high schoolers to individuals in their 80s. I'd love to work with you.
