Training Peaks Coach Profile

My Ethos

My goal as a coach is to value what we all have in common as individuals. I am here to guide others to self-achievement in sport, but also in real life through community and gaining knowledge of personal potential beyond just numbers but is the sense of nutrition, psychology, and understanding physiology to achieve the set goals. I want to be there to mentor through trust and friendship to create a bond that's not just goal achievement, but personal self-accomplishment to reach fulfillment creating overall class achievement and imaginative intellect. As a Coach, I want others to achieve an independent and ambitious sense of self through the honest and loyal connections we create as a bond. They expect me to be on their side as a team member to guide and mentor, creating imaginative and insightful direction for achieving goals and also self-growth. I provide a broad-minded and intellectually safe place to allow individuals to learn and feel a true sense of self-accomplishment through knowledge in all areas of the balance of psychology, nutrition, and science to where ultimate health is achieved,  goals are acquired, and lifetime journeys are created.
