Not every athlete wants to WIN the race, some of us just want to finish. My approach is simple. I feel that most training plans are difficult to understand for the beginner triathlete. I know my style isn't for every triathlete. If you have many years of racing experience or want to finish in the top of your age group, then I might not be the right Coach for you.
My focus is on the beginner triathlete who has the goal of finishing their first triathlon or their first IRONMAN distance.
I completed my first sprint triathlon several years ago and was instantly hooked. This sparked in me a desire to someday complete a full IRONMAN. I kept this to myself knowing that as the executive of a large company with a busy travel schedule along with my family responsibilities, it might be impossible to find the time to train for such a demanding race. Still, my passion for the sport continued to grow, and after extensive research and conversations with several IRONMAN finishers, I felt confident that with proper training and the right coach I could achieve my goal of completing an IRONMAN. I told friends and family members about my goal, and I got a lot of the same reaction: Are you crazy?" If you are anything like me, you know this only strengthened my determination. Several years later I have now completed three IRONMAN 70.3 races and one IRONMAN 140.6 race along with several smaller triathlons, duathlons and local running events. However, along this journey, I've learned that more than finishing races and receiving medals, what I enjoy most about triathlon are the friends I've made and introducing new people into the greatest sport in the world.
I truly believe that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE
