Active in team/individual sports throughout high school and college and ultimately shedding over 50 lbs after undergraduate school from Va Tech led me to obtain a graduate degree in exercise science from Old Dominion University. Thus, I have over twenty years of experience in combining the scientific principles for fitness as well as sports performance with practical application. Personally I continue to compete in local and national cycling time trial, road races, mountain bike races, running and multisport events. When not traveling and exploring the world by bike or hiking, I’m busy at home reading, trail running, playing tennis or golf, sipping fine wine and playing with my Jack Russell and Rat terriers.
My coaching style centers on setting realistic yet challenging goals with attention to the “whole” athlete. My athletes can expect a relationship that includes accountability, motivation, and compassion with attention to detail in a positive coaching environment. Also, developing their physical and mental potential to succeed in their chosen athletic endeavor through innovative training methods, unmatched expertise, exceptional service and FUN! Services include personalized health, fitness, and performance assessments as well as sports nutrition analysis with follow up review. Training programs designed to fit busy lifestyles and schedules with evaluation via internet, phone & private consultation. Individual or small group instruction in CTS offices or your location.
