Coaching Philosophy:
I am a coach first and an athlete second. I take it as a great honor and responsibility to be a coach, so I do everything I can to help my athletes succeed. I remain a student of the sport and read up on just about everything I can get my hands on. A wise coach produces confident, capable athletes. I take great pride in making programs and monitoring athlete development along the way. I love it when athletes question my programs or workouts. It opens the door of communication and allows the athlete-coach relationship to flourish.

What does my coaching look like? For my private clients, the first steps are getting to know each other. First step is me sending out a questionnaire asking about prior racing and training experience, limiters, strengths, and goals. With this information I learn more about the athlete and can develop a solid training plan. Data analysis is given often to ensure the athlete receives valuable feedback on where to improve. Workout goals are made clear on the key workout sessions. Workouts are challenging and the expectations are high. I encourage and value athlete feedback. It is my goal to develop a strong athlete/coach relationship, one in which the athlete receives the support they need in order to excel and exceed their goals. It is my greatest honor to coach an athlete to a race and it’s something I don’t take lightly or for granted. I would be honored to coach you to your first race, or 100th. Doesn’t matter the distance or event, I’d be happy to coach you!

For those following the group training programs, my goal is that you get the best training plan possible and the support you need to get to the finish line strong, healthy and happy.
