Coaching approach

Coaching is a continuous dialogue between coach and athlete. We start by learning about your athletic goals, lifestyle (nutrition, sleep, time constraints), athletic background, strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and level of commitment.

With this input, we help refine your goals and explain what it will take to achieve them. We then work with you to develop a strategy to get you there. We use your feedback - your physiological and psychological responses to training - to create a unique plan specifically designed for you.

We offer support as you work toward your goals and foster your own inner strengths. This includes

  • designing a plan that supports your goals, fits your lifestyle, and is enjoyable
  • interpreting what your body and brain are telling you throughout your training in order to keep you happy, healthy, and uninjured
  • empowering you to make choices in support of your goals, such as nutrition and recovery strategies
  • celebrating your accomplishments as you progress through the training, whether it's getting through a hard workout, reaching the starting line uninjured, or winning your age group.

We will be honest and respectful, organized and responsive, patient and supportive, enthusiastic and fun. We take each training plan seriously, and hope you do, too.
