Expertise/Experience: Coaching is an extension of my earlier career as a High School Physical Education and Sports Medicine teacher. I coach / teach my athletes to be their best within the parameters of their life. I believe in skills development as well as physiological training. Without one you can’t have the other. Coaching is a 2 way communication steam, and my application of workouts, recovery and education is all dictated by the life space of each athlete I coach. I also practice what I preach with 17 Ironman finishes, 2 Age Group Ironman Wins, too many 70.3 races/ placings to count and 6 Kona qualifying races with 2 trips taken to the Big Island.
Athletes you service: (ie Intermediate to Elite athletes) Beginners to elite age groupers, sprint to Ironman. I’ve coached a short course ITU Age Group World Champion / Kona Qualifier in her first Ironman. I’ve coached people who have never swam, biked or ran before. For me they all hold the same value as people and athletes.
