Empowering athletes’ dreams since 1999
I should have never been a world champion triathlete. As a young child, I was hours away from a permanent limp, yet I overcame multiple obstacles throughout my life to live my dream. We all encounter challenges, roadblocks and disappointment on the road to our goals and dreams.
During my pro racing career, I was mostly on my own, no coach to guide and motivate me through the maze of triathlon training and racing. Feeling alone, trying to figure it all out on my own was a daunting task. As I look back, I would have given anything to have expert guidance to give me strength, motivation and confidence in what I was doing. The main reason I became a coach is to bring my experience and talents to being the coach I never had. No one wins alone.
Do you ever feel like no one cares about your dreams or think, “I couldn’t possibly do that”? I named my business The Empowered Athlete for a reason: I believe in the athlete in all; I believe in your dreams and goals. Through my years of education and experience, together, we create a roadmap that fits into your busy life. I coach you to a greater sense of accomplishment and empowerment, preventing overwhelm, stress and injury along the way. I provide accountability and support, answering all of your questions. The key to achievement: chipping away at your goals one workout, one day at a time, together. If you want to feel empowered, confident, proud, lean, fit and fast, contact me. Together we’ll chase down your triathlon dreams. I coach athletes of ALL ability levels locally and across the country
