Simple Endurance Sport Coaching That Focuses on Process Before Results
Why do you need a coach?
Well, first, you don’t necessarily “need” a coach.
But having a coach goes a long way to reaching your goals.
And when you use training to find your challenge, whether it’s a race, mental toughness, some bucket list event, brings you strength and growth.
People choose coaches because they have a long-term goal, they want to get stronger and faster and need expertise, don’t want to think for themselves and just follow a program.
There are online training plans from a million different sources.
Plus former pros hang up their professional shingles and offer coaching.
Why pay an older guy who was never a professional to help you meet your goals?
Comprehensive Training Plans for Simple Endurance Sports
Most online programs give you a training plan that tells you how much and when to ride or run.
We use a more “wholistic” approach for simple endurance sport coaching.
We are more focused on the value of the process of training, on training to find your challenge.
Through a blend endurance sport training, strength training, and yoga, we create customized programs to make you stronger, more mobile, and more confident regardless of your results.
Our goal is to help you use the training as part of the challenge. We want you to tap into your own inner resources to become a better you.
We work with you whether you’re a beginner aiming to finish a 5k or a marathoner looking to break 3:20; doing the Trek 100 for the first time or a cyclocross race; or want to move up a wave at the Birkie or complete your first cross-country ski event.
For $185 a month, we create a comprehensive mix of an endurance training plan, strength training, movement through yoga, mental toughness training, and nutritional advice to meet your needs.
We use Training Peaks as our platform, which is included in our price.
We discount pricing for six-month or one-year commitments. There’s always a guarantee that if our coaching relationship doesn’t work out, I’ll refund the remaining long-term money.
The program includes a one-hour initial meeting where we review goals, experience, and life demands. We can meet in-person, by phone, or online.

Training to Find Your Challenge
Our training philosophy is Simple. We blend five essential elements:
- lots of long and slow training,
- some training with intervals,
- strength training,
- rest and recovery
Planning is the key to growth, improvement, and accomplishment from your endurance sports coaching.
We always work backwards from your event, gradually building your fitness, endurance, and speed so you feel confident and ready on the big day.
We target your goal event with training specificity that directly prepares you to do your best.
You will focus on training to find your challenge and smash through your limitations.
So if you are riding the Trek 100, we’ll plan for a lot of longer distance rides. If you are running a 10k, we’ll do some long runs and some shorter runs at a higher speed to build your endurance and fitness.
We also add two to three days a week of strength training and yoga to our training program.
