Coaching Philosophy: I believe that every athlete can achieve any goal they set their mind to – after all, it is the mind that is the greatest limiter. As an engineer, I take a very methodical and logical approach to training. I appreciate charts and graphs and evaluate training load on several factors. I believe in a progressive overload strategy where the athlete is pushed hard for two to three weeks, but then is given the opportunity to recover. This strategy allows the athlete to have both a physical and mental reprieve where they can catch up on all of life’s other tasks.
