I am currently accepting a limited number of athletes for personal coaching. If you are interested in my coaching please read below and contact me via email:

    My coaching is focused on developing athletes on an individual and personalized basis. As an athlete, my focus and expertise has been at the half and full-Ironman distances. As a coach, I understand the demands, training, and racing needs for all distances, from sprint races to Ironmans.

Coaching Goals:
    My goal as a coach is to build and nurture my athlete-coach relationships to give my athletes the guidance and direction to help them develop to the maximum of each of their potentials. I don't provide template training plans, I am dedicated to personalizing each athlete's training based up his or her individual athletic strengths, needs, areas for development, athletic goals, personal life goals, family schedule, work schedule, and available hours to dedicate to triathlon. For this reason, I will only work with a small number of athletes. I value quality of coach-athlete relationships rather than quantity.
What do I bring to the table as coach?
    I bring a unique skill set as a coach in that I took myself as a self-coached athlete from an entry-level agegroup athlete, to amateur half-Ironman national champion, to Kona Top-5 in my agegroup, to winning an Ironman as a professional. I've learned from the good things I've done, but also made many mistakes along the way and learned from each one. With 40 full-Ironmans and 50 Ironman 70.3's of experience, I've personally experienced and learned from all of the highs and lows of training and racing. I've trained and learned from some the best triathletes in the world. I've trained and learned from some of the best triathlon coaches in the world. Since my first day in the sport, I've become a student of the sport, learning as much as I can through book learning as well as real world experience. I am not someone who only has the book learning, but I've done it myself.


     I realize most athletes cannot train full-time like professional triathletes. I work with my athletes' work and life parameters to build training that fits their goals. I don't require athletes to train with a power meter or HR monitor, but can develop training using any of these tools. I can work with an athlete to maximize their performance based upon how they want to train. If I force an athlete to train with a power meter on the bike, for instance, and that style doesn't suit that athlete, then they may be worse off because that type of training is less enjoyable for them. At the same time, I do believe there are great benefits to training with these tools. I've seen athletes perform well at the highest professional levels with all types of approaches. I am happy to work with athletes, toys, and technology as it fits them.


     Currently I don't work with different levels or packages for coaching. I create a weekly customized training plan, unlimited email communication, and a monthly hour call. I will always do my best to return emails as quickly as I can, but am committed to return emails within 24 hours of receiving them.  I use Training Peaks as my on-line coaching tool. All athletes are expected to have their own Training Peaks accounts when we start working together.
