I am a USAT Level II Certified Coach, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), and an experienced triathlete with ten seasons under my belt. I have been coaching endurance athletes for years with many 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 70.3 and Ironman finishes, and more experienced athletes to PR’s, podium finishes, and National 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.
Good communication is at the heart of effective teaching. An important message is lost, if 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’ll only need that method if you’re a law student (or professor).
In another career, I was a lawyer 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 and honed excellent communication skills. I proudly bring these skills to my coaching practice.
