"There is no greater joy than showing an athlete they can accomplish anything they approach with a plan. The confidence built through training transcends into all aspects of life. If you do the work, you will accomplish your goals. My approach is always goal and life centric. I help define why you want it, and create a plan to get you there that fits into your life. No two athletes are the same. All approaches are unique, and are modified when needed. Triathlon is a get to, not a have to. You should be excited every day that you get to train! I train the whole athlete, from family involvement to nutrition, strength, and recovery. I love making racing dreams come true!"
"Coaching has given me the opportunity to share my experiences and knowledge of triathlon to help others reach their goals. My approach as a coach is very hands on. I like to find out each athletes vision, whether that be to simply finish the race successfully or be a top contender. Once their goal has been determined each plan is customized to that individual week to week. My philosophy is Train smart, Rest well and Enjoy the Journey.
As a youth and Juniors coach I am able to teach the next generation of triathlon the fundamentals, while encouraging a healthy lifestyle, but most importantly keeping it fun. This has been one of the most rewarding aspects of coaching for me!"
