You want to be your best? I can get you there.
I have been doing triathlon for over 25 years.
I started out as an overweight (246 lbs.) person who could barely run a mile to join the Marines.
I hired the best coaches I could find over the last 20 years. I have aligned and surrounded myself with some of the best minds in the sport. I have learned from them, trained with them, kept what has worked, and cut out the things that haven’t. I even went so far as to own a metabolic cart and hired physiologists to run it alongside me to adapt protocols that were best for endurance athletes.
I took that information and have since gone on to:
- Ironman Kona 9 x with a PR of 9:16
- 70.3 PR of 4:04
- Olympic Distance PR of 1:54
- USAT Level 2 Coach
- I was USAT Developmental Coach of the year 2011
- Coached Ben Kanute (2016 Olympian for 8 years)
- Have qualified DOZENS of athletes for Kona and countless more for other World Championships
- Served 2 years on Dare2Tri Board of Directors
Now, in my mid 40s, life asks other things of me often, but competition and doing the best I can with the time I have to focus on the sport is still important to me. I have had to learn new techniques to balance life with training so the time I do have to train, I get the most out of it without having to feel guilty like I should be somewhere else.
I work with people who want to get the most out of themselves for the time they have to put into the sport.
I boil down the best practices, put them into a plan you can execute, and am there along the journey for honest real feedback so you can be sure you are achieving your best.
I work with athletes for 550.00 - 750.00 a month.
I have camps specifically for my athletes. These camps include:
