CTS Pro Coach – Specializes In Cycling Coaching
“I love that no two athletes are the same, as each athlete has their own unique challenges. I have found that my diverse experiences help me to connect with and understand my athletes and their training needs.”
I have been lucky enough to work as a coach with CTS since June 2011. Though I have been involved in athletics my entire life, I had avoided endurance sports for many years. Through high school, I trained as a powerlifter, football, basketball, and track/field athlete. With the goal of continuing to play those sports in college, I reached 250 pounds before graduation.
When I arrived at Indiana University things quickly changed. Unexpectedly, I fell in love with endurance athletics. I started training, lost 70 lbs, and when on to race in The Little Five Hundred for the Cutters (of “Breaking Away” fame).
After receiving a B.S. in Exercise Science from Indiana University, I moved to Colorado Springs to work with the best coaches in the business at CTS.
