I am an IRONMAN Certified Coach and NASM Personal Trainer based in Des Moines, IA. There is both an art and a science to training and racing, and my passion is finding the balance you need to achieve your goals and more.

I'd love to hear more about you to see how I can help!


  • One - One Remote Coaching
  • Customized Training Plans built to your "A" Race, ability level, and schedule
  • Pre-Built Training Plans for 1/2 Marathon, Marathon, and Long Course Triathlon


The art and science of training can be complex, but as a coach my goal is to help you strike the right balance. To do so, I focus on the following:

Train with purpose. There are really only three goals of training:

  1. Get faster - Increase your functional threshold.
  2. Go farther - Increase your aerobic capacity.
  3. Prepare for race specific demands - Execute on race day.

By using your training data and Training Peaks metrics, I can construct a plan to help you reach your goals in an effective and efficient way.

Integrate training into lifestyle.

  1. Clarity - Why are you racing, what will achieving your goals feel like, how will it positively impact your life?
  2. Accountability - Weekly accountability calls provide the support you need to follow through.
  3. Mindset - A coach's helps you keep perspective, as well as celebrate the highs and dig out of the lows that come with racing.

While this journey is all about you, I have found that it helps to have a coach who has walked the same path, so my current PR's are listed below:

  • IRONMAN Wisconsin: 10:43:55 (5th AG)
  • Marathon: 2:54:23 at Grandma's Marathon (Boston Qualifier)
  • Half-Marathon: 1:14:57
  • Beer Mile: 6:27
