Middleville, MI , United States
Experienced cyclist and data driven coach with a passion for helping amateur athletes exceed their goals through individualized training and regular communication. Focused on providing the training stress required for athletes to succeed, while also prescribing the rest required to prevent burnout and progress in a sustainable manner.
I grew up mountain biking and I had a good coach who helped me perform well and also helped me enjoy the sport. I am a USA Cycling certified level 3 coach, and as part of the USAC coaching program I have completed USAC's Safe Sport abuse prevention training.
I am an engineer by trade, I model and optimize systems every day. The human body is a complex system, but we can model it by measuring power, heart rate, perceived exertion, and speed. Analytic software like Traingpeaks™ and WK05 help analyze that data, and provide me (the coach) with insight on how to optimize the system (athlete’s performance).
