Background:


With more then 20 years of experience in this industry (ITU-Worldcup + ETU + WTC Ironman (PB: IM 8:16; 70.3 3h47min; OD 1h49min; 13.1 68mins; 10k 31min..)) I have seen it all from an amateur and professional point of view.

I know what it takes to achieve success and to train right. My goal is to deliver the greatest plan for you every time.

To be a good coach I think it is very important to listen to your athletes, to deliver an individualized training plan that is adjustable to everybody needs (strength & weakness).

A great knowledge about exercise physiology comes in handy (University of Cardiff, UK), too, but sometimes you need to feel it in your guts whats best for your client. Nothing can teach you that but many years of experience and having “lived & breathed” the sport.

I've been helping/coaching athletes professionally since 2006 back when I lived in San Francisco, CA. My athletes (CEO's, elite amateurs, short & long distance triathletes, age-groupers, Marathon runners..) come from around the world (USA, Europe (UK, GERMANY..) and Asia (Hong-kong...).
