Consistency is Key (CiK): 

I have a strong passion to help athletes reach their fitness goals. For the past 10 years I have been coaching athletes of all ages, skill levels, athletic backgrounds, and distances as a Triathlon coach.  I am a USAT Coach (2012) and Ironman Certified Coach (2016).  In addition to these certifications, I also have my run coach certification (2008) through Team in Training/The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and RRCA( 2018).

I have walked the same path as my athletes, I have participated in many races:  Sprint, Olympic, multiple 70.3 finishes (every year since 2010), and I am a 3-time Ironman finisher (Louisville, 2013,2015, Florida 2017).  I have also crossed the finish line of many half and full marathons (most recent is KDF Half Marathon in 2019).  My athletic profile also includes ultra-distance swims. 

What separates me from other coaches is my holistic approach (physical, mental, nutrition, work/life/training balance).  I focus on each of my athletes as an individual and do not apply a “cookie-cutter” approach.  I understand and can plan around work, travel, vacations and the unexpected twists in life.  I’m proud to say my athletes form a tight team bond and support and often train with each other.

Progressive Endurance Coaching: 

Progressive Endurance Coaching is a data driven triathlon coaching service.  I use analytical software (beyond what Trainingpeaks.com utilizes) to help me find where your training needs to be focused.  However, I believe in the importance of athlete feedback from their workouts and races. 

I have first hand knowledge on what it takes to race at a high level (I raced professionally for 3.5 years) and have a proven track record of success with my athletes with results such as 1st place AG finishes at Ironman events and athletes qualifying for World Championship races every year. 

Whether you are looking at a sprint distance or up to Ironman distance, or even looking at going off-road at an Xterra event, I know what it takes to be successful with the training hours you have available.

Anyone Can Tri:

My coaching goal is to get relatively new triathletes across the finish line with a smile.  Be it a sprint, all the way up to a full Ironman.  As I was told almost 10 years when I started, "Anyone can tri!"  My goal is to help you overcome whatever restrictions you have:  be it work, be it inexperience in one of the three sports, or anything else that is holding you back.  I love nothing more than seeing an athlete cross the finish line of whatever distance they've challenged themselves to complete. 

I'm a 9-time Ironman finisher in every possible condition/course type.  Flat to hilly bike courses, calm to windy conditions, and rainy to dry weather.  I've competed in fresh/salt water, in no current/a good push, and in a wetsuit and without. Run courses have been pancake flat to hilly.  Temperatures have ranged from blisteringly hot to the mid-50s.
