Tri-ing For Life

Coach Thom is a USA Triathlon Certified Coach partnering with Triathletes, runners, cyclists, and swimmers to reach their performance goals

I approach each client as an individual assessing the athlete’s goals and the gaps that are limiting the desired progress, then quickly identifying what training prescriptions are needed to help bridge the identified gaps.

My philosophy is to get the greatest development possible on the typical amateur athlete’s very limited time resource.
