Ive been a triathlete for over 10 years and I live and
breath the sport. The sport has changed my life because Ive learned to live as
an athlete. Living as an athlete isnt simply participating in a sport,
training for 30 hours a week, or completing the Ironman World Championshipalthough,
I have done these things. Rather, its a life approach. It requires a
relentless awareness of your body, mind, and environment and a willingness to
live and adapt, rest and grow.
Presently, I'm working towards my pro card.
In addition to training, I work as a full time USA Triathlon certified coach and enjoy it tremendously.
Theres nothing quite like seeing the individuals I coach grow as athletes and
human beings. Ive received a BS in Health Science Studieswith a focus in
exercise physiology and the aging processand a BA in English from Quinnipiac University. Ive also received a Master of Arts from Duquesene University. I
strongly believe that my education sets me apart from many other coaches. My
foundation allows me to educate athletes about themselves from an acute,
biological point of view, helping to prevent sickness and injury. It has also
equipped me to coach older individuals who are battling age specific challenges
such as sarcopinia, or the natural deterioration of the muscles due to aging.
All this has helped me coach beginner athletes who were just trying to finish their first sprint distance triathlon to those who have qualified for USA Triathlon Olympic and Sprint Distance Nationals, the Ironman 70.3 World Championship, and the Ironman World Championship.
