“I have been a multi-sport coach since 2001 and have trained hundreds of athletes for whom triathlon, running, biking, swimming, fitness and health must fit into very busy lives. My clientele includes lawyers, doctors, full time mothers, office workers, school teachers, nurses, and entrepreneurs – and every one of them has a jam packed schedule. My goal is to help each athlete strike a balance between training to their maximum potential and balancing all the various aspects of their lives, as well as to provide all the information they need to perform at their best and stay healthy and injury free. Over the years, my clients have done everything from complete their first 5k or sprint triathlon to qualify for the Boston Marathon and win age group awards in Ironman triathlons and National Championships in Jet Ski racing!

I achieved a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology so that I can provide the most current and accurate information and training strategies for my clients. I continuously look for opportunities to learn more about sports training, coaching and general fitness and health so that I may share this knowledge and expertise with my clients. I am truly passionate about coaching and living a healthy and athletic lifestyle.”

Since then he never stopped, and now he trains 30 hours plus a week chasing a Kona spot in the professional field and has completed 17 ironmans, and more than 17 half-ironman
