If you’re here you’re obviously curious about coaching, who I am and what I can bring to the table.
I’m a competitive age group triathlete and runner with more that 20 years of running experience and more than 10 years of triathlon experience under my belt. I'm also an NAASFP certified run coach, an NCCP trained triathlon coach, and a Can Fit Pro Certified Personal Training Specialist. I’ve been coaching people to meet their running and triathlon goals since 2014.
I coach athletes of all levels, from beginners to those chasing PRs and podiums. Nothing makes me happier than seeing one of my athletes do something they previously thought was impossible, be it finishing their first half-ironman or crushing their marathon PR.
I spent years juggling a busy career with my athletic pursuits so I completely understand the need for a realistic, balanced training plan. As I like to tell my athletes, I know life happens. Most of us aren't getting paid to train—we do it because we love it. And because I've been there, fitting training in between other commitments, I know how important it is to make things work for your schedule. I also believe that education empowers confidence, so I will always explain the why behind the workout.
I believe that coaching is a partnership between myself and the athletes I coach. In order for a partnership to be successful, there needs to be ongoing communication. The data you provide only tells me part of the story. To get the most out of our partnership, I need your feedback. I also expect you to do the work. I am here to help guide you but it is up to YOU to do the work. If you aren't ready or willing to do the work, then this partnership won't work.
Getting to the finish line of a major athletic event isn't always a solo mission; sometimes you need a seasoned expert to show you the way. So if you’re looking for someone to help, give me a call.
