I’ve been coaching athletes for 15 years, and consider myself extremely fortunate to have a such an interesting and challenging job. Human physiology fascinates me, and I love to help my athletes understand why the training I am asking them to do will help them improve their performance. I have a degree in Kinesiology from the University of Minnesota (I also have a degree in Government from Harvard University but I promise we won’t talk politics…). I used to race bikes, but now I am content with cycle touring through foreign places and sampling local pastries, or riding deep into the woods and building a fire.
I coach athletes of all abilities, from national champions to recreational riders. Being active and getting outside and playing with friends is fun, and I want all my athletes to be able to maximize their fitness so they can enjoy their sport. I’ll push you hard, and keep you focused on your athletic goals, but I’m also aware that we have big lives with important work and family obligations and we need to balance all of that.
I coach cyclists of all abilities and disciplines. I work with mountain bike, road, and track cyclists. I have extensive experience in ultra-endurance mountain bike events as well as shorter road and mountain bike events. I also have a great deal of bike touring experience (both on and off-road) and can help you plan trips, routes, and gear selection for multi-day events. In addition to athletic training, I offer an in-depth knowledge of sports nutrition and weight management for endurance athletes.« Back to all coaches
