About Me

I am closing in on nearly a decade of professional coaching for CTS. Every year I love it more than the last. This job is a true joy as I get to work with people who share a drive to thrive and live as strong as possible. That means intertwining training with life, sleep, and nutrition.  My number one job is being a dad to our 8 year old son Oscar. I’m married to Dr. Jennifer Lambert-Shute who teaches Marriage and Family Therapy at Valdosta State University. I also serve as adjunct faculty teaching Nutrition in Sport and Health for the Kinesiology Dept at VSU. Recently I have fallen back in love with mtn bike racing but still enjoy the occasional marathon. I come from a running background that morphed into criterium racing which lead to all forms of bike racing. My favorite rides are in Boone, NC with my friends where we enjoy long climbs and beautiful vistas.

My job is to provide the most efficient use an individual’s training time while working with them to develop a thriving lifestyle. That means working closely with the athlete (of any level) with their training plan, sleep and recovery, and nutrition to support and promote training adaptations. I train any type of aerobic athlete with a primary interest in all modes and durations of cycling, running, and triathlon. I also specialize in cross-style training which combines both aerobic and strength development.
