As a coach certified under USA Cycling, USA Triathlon, IRONMAN and the American College of Sports Medicine, I believe in training protocols that are science-based and research-driven. I aim to help my clients apply the proper combination of training stress, intensity, and rest/recovery modalities that will result in peak performance conditions at their target events. I don't promise success - you need to put in the work for that - but I do offer a plan to guide you along the way.⁣
