It has been my privilege to have had the opportunity to teach people young and old from all backgrounds of life the great sport of triathlon. The sport of triathlon (swim bike run) has become the fastest growing sport world wide. Teaching people to train and compete in the sport of triathlon is very exhilarating and rewarding to me as a coach.
I get such great joy from watching a person that I have coached develop, improve or succeed at difficult physical goals in their life, like the completion of a swim bike or run exercise not previously attained. Sometimes this has included teaching someone an activity they’ve never even done before, like teaching someone to swim when they were previously deathly afraid to enter the water because of a near drowning experience as a child. There is something highly special for me about coaching someone through the achievement of competing in ones first triathlon and even more so coaching someone to the successful completion and accomplishment of Ironman which is the most difficult physical challenge on the planet.
As a triathlon coach I work diligently to provide the best possible coaching to my athletes through cutting edge and diverse training methodologies. My abilities as a coach come not only from many years of experience as a fitness professional but also from being a competitive athlete myself. I am an Ironman Clydesdale Triathlete and United States Masters Swimmer. For those that don’t know what a Clydesdale triathlete is; a Clydesdale triathlete is an athlete of body builder physique weighing 200 pounds an above. To date, I am a World Ranked Olympic Distance Clydesdale Triathlete. I am also to date a Nationally Ranked USMS Swimmer in the pool and also for distance swimming in the open water. In my own home environment in Sarasota Florida, as an athlete and coach, I am well known as my picture has been posted in some local establishments.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced triathlete, I would love to have the opportunity of coaching you into discovering and or improving upon your extraordinary talents and skills as an athlete so you can fulfill being your best.
I look forward to hearing from you!
