Triathlon and single sport endurance coaching in Phoenix because you don't have time to mess around! My philosophy is: "Where Art and Science Meet" A good coach needs to understand the "science" behind what it is that we do and the "art" is how to apply it to the human element. As for me, I came to the Triathlon after participating in a multitude of other sports over the years. In 1993 my wife and I moved to Tempe, Arizona, where she was enrolled at ASU. We remained in Tempe after she graduated, and for the next several years I dedicated myself to the family and to earning a living as the owner of a custom picture framing shop. By 2004, after marriage and two children, I found myself missing the active lifestyle and 20 pounds overweight. It was at this stage that we had an epiphany. Get back into sport, lose weight and reestablish an active lifestyle. We joined a gym together and the long hard road to reclaiming our former selves began. That important step kicked off my current multisport life style.
I have long been interested in helping new and experienced triathletes, and when approached provided advice based on my personal experience. However, lacking the proper credentials, I was reluctant to come across as professionally certified. I decided to pursue my certification as a USAT Triathlon coach. At the end of 2009 I received my certification, realizing one goal. In 2014 I received my USAT Youth and Jr certification.
