Coaching Philosophies:

I believe that the sport of triathlon doesn’t have to be complicated to allow someone to fulfill their multisport dreams.  Technology has advanced the sport over the years but nothing replaces hard work and commitment to achieve a goal.  Anything is possible given a well written training plan and a desire to improve.   I don’t define success by how well you place in a race but by the level of fitness and understanding of the sport you have gained through our time together.  I preach consistency and balance in all aspects of sport and life. Communication is the vital link between athlete and coach for a mutually beneficial working relationship.

Thank you for everything you did to get me there and to keep me going on the day. I am surprised how well I feel…after my other IM I was a train wreck for ages….I know I gave it my all. I think good training can set us up not only for good racing but for good recovery. Thank you for that!
