Coaching Philosophies:

Any coach can write a workout plan.  Having insight into the athlete’s specific needs is the key to a properly designed plan.  An excellent coach applies the proper training volumes, intensities, and rest/recovery in the proper doses and at the proper time.  Quality trumps quantity when it comes to a successful training plan.  I get to know my athletes, their strengths and weaknesses, and their goals and aspirations.  Since I am a busy professional myself, I understand how to help other busy professionals maintain a life balance while maximizing their effectiveness, improving their results, and achieving their goals – all through personal attention.
