Steelhead Coaching provides affordable individualized coaching, group training and personal training for triathletes, runners, cyclists and swimmers in Portland, Oregon. We also offer a nice selection of group fitness classes and nutritional coaching.
I take a holistic approach towards coaching and training to ensure all my clients reach the starting line injury-free, mentally prepared and physically-tuned to compete at their optimal level. I understand each individual has unique goals which require unique program development. With that in mind, I prioritize individual evaluation and regular coach/client communication. This level of communication ensures that no stone is left unturned, and no corners are cut. Equally important, is balance in life. We can allow the body to develop naturally according to its own physiological clock and each client's personal goals. I place emphasis on specificity, “pre-hab”, and strength to make resilient athletes. I will work you harder than you ever thought possible, but you’ll be ready. My job is to help you develop the confidence to know that you’ll be able to tackle any workout, race or speed bump that life has in store.
