How long have you been coaching?

5 years

 

What motivated you to begin coaching?

I started coaching athletes because I am incredibly passionate about triathlon and helping others achieve their goals. Being part of triathlon has enriched my life in ways I never thought possible. I want to help others share in the positive experience that I have had in this sport. I have also made a lot of mistakes along the way. Hopefully I can help others avoid the pitfalls that have tripped me up over the years.

 

Types of athletes or race distances you prefer to coach?

I love working with athletes of all backgrounds for any race distance. All I care about is that my athletes have the drive and determination to meet their goals.

 

What is your coaching philosophy?

I believe that triathlon is much more about just swim, bike, and run. As a coach I am focused on all aspects of my athletes lives, including strength, mobility, recovery, and nutrition, as well as how triathlon affects their personal life. Successful athletes are ones who can find balance and consistency and have a training plan that works WITH their life, not against it.

 

Coaching certifications and experience

Professional Triathlete, multiple Ironman and 70.3 professional podium finishes, 70.3. Amateur world Champion, USAT Level 1 certification

 

How did you get into the sport?

When I was 12 I saw Ironman Hawaii on tv and a dream was born. It took me more than a decade before I entered my first triathlon, but I always knew someday I wanted to be an Ironman. I had no idea just where this sport would take me!

 

Favorite Distance to Race?
