Coaching Philosophy

The relationship is the most important factor in effective coaching. A successful experience is built on:

  • Mutual trust and respect.
  • Open communication - This is two-way.
  • Collaboration - This is a team effort.
  • Learn as you train - This helps you become a smarter and better athlete.

Training Philosophy

I bring a variety of training approaches to fit you - your goals, strengths and weaknesses, lifestyle, etc. - not me or anyone else. I work to enhance your strengths and tackle your limiters. I bring in ideas from coaching legends as well as cutting edge research and approaches, from people including: Lydiard, Daniels, Maffetone, Noakes, Pfitzinger, Friel, Hutchinson, and more.

Training the Fits Your Life

Serious goals take serious commitments. However, real, long term, sustainable success also requires a healthy balance in all areas of your life: work, school, family, friends, etc. I create training plans programs that work with your life - time constraints, stresses, unpredictability - to help you maintain a healthy life balance.
