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.

I’ve also done over 20 70.3s, qualified for 70.3 Worlds 2013, Challenge 70.3 Championship 2019 and numerous OLY national championships racing in Milwaukee, Cleveland and Abu Dhabi. I’ve done the Chicago tri for 10 years. 2022 World Championship Abu Dhabi
I have coached elite athletes and beginners. I have sought out information on coaching women, especially women over 40, because women need different coaching from men.
I am comfortable coaching swim/bike/run as well as stretching, yoga, pilates, and weight lifting.
I like to coach with a personal touch, but can provide a training program if that’s all you need. Pricing ranges from $50/hour to $249/month. Free consultation call for 1 hour for prospective athletes.
