My background as a world-class professional triathlete, coupled with my coaching experience and sport science background gives me a unique perspective on the sport and the training process. I am dedicated to my athletes' success and work hard to ensure that their training is tailored to their specific needs and goals. The way I coach sets me apart. I see it as an art form, not just a science. Instead of simply following traditional methods or expectations, I trust my intuition, personal experience, and instincts to anticipate what will be most effective for my athletes. As a former high-performance athlete, I have a thorough understanding of the physical and mental demands of training and competition, which enables me to empathize with my athletes and tailor my coaching approach to meet their unique needs. I am also highly accessible and available to my athletes, and am always there to answer questions, provide support, and make adjustments to their training plans as needed.This is especially useful when an athlete is dealing with unexpected conflicts or feeling overwhelmed by their recent workouts. In addition to this, I use a variety of tools such as power meters, heart rate monitors to help optimize training and ensure that we are meeting your goals. And I also perform regular field tests and blood lactate testing to track progress and adjust the plan as needed. I pride myself on being a coach who truly cares and I work tirelessly to help my athletes achieve their goals.
