I am a USAT Level II Certified Coach, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and an experienced triathlete with thirteen seasons under my belt. I have been coaching endurance athletes for over seven years, with a long list of excellent results. Previously, I was an Elite Level Coach at Training Bible Coaching, working under Joe Friel. In the last several seasons, I’ve coached beginners to their first half-iron and ironman finishes, and more experienced athletes to PR’s, wins and podium finishes, and World Championship level performances.
As a coach, I constantly educate myself on both the basic art and science of endurance sports, as well as the individuals I coach. I go above and beyond what is required of a USAT Certified Coach in terms of continuing education. Why? Because I absolutely love this field.
I believe excellent communication is at the heart of effective teaching. An important message is lost if it is not effectively communicated. What does that mean? In my opinion, the often intimidating and interconnected issues of effective training ought to be tackled in a simple, coherent, understandable way. There’s no need to complicate what is already perhaps unfamiliar to the athlete. You only need to do that if you’re a law student (or professor).
In another career, I was an attorney with an MBA. I still am actually. I use this to my coaching advantage. I believe that through my educational, professional, and life experiences, I have developed the best and most effective of communication skills. I proudly bring these skills to my coaching practice.
