My name is Spencer Paxson. I have been a student of sport for most of my life. I believe in the positive value of sport, at any age, any ability level, recreational or competitive, as an avenue to a healthy, happy life.
I had the fortune of growing up in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. I discovered mountain biking at the age of 12, and what began as a weekend hobby has since taken me around the world at the highest levels of the sport.
I have been a "professional" athlete since 2011 alongside other careers in geographic sciences and renewable energy project development. For years I've enjoyed the blend of art and science in conditioning my mind and body to achieve athletic objectives, and the self discovery that parlays usefully into other realms of life. My professional background outside of cycling (7 years developing large-scale wind and solar power plants), as well as being a father, allows me a better perspective to appreciate the challenge of blending personal objectives into a busy schedule.
Launching a small coaching business was a way to blend my passions for sport, science, creativity and community. I am motivated by the prospect of empowering clients to know themselves better though pursuit of sport, whether that is getting stronger and faster, or adopting healthy habits to get more out of the things they love to do. No matter the objective, the focus is always toward long term process, exploring personal potential, and good times outside.
