Let's climb the next mountain together.
Exercise is an amazing thing. When done right, it has the power to change lives for the better and bring people together. As your coach, my mission is to help you grow stronger by providing evidence-based training, accountability, and support in a highly personalized and affordable format. I also believe that everyone should have the opportunity to get to know who they're working with, which is why I make the first month of any program completely free.
As a certified personal trainer, I am happy to work with individuals of any background or ability. I specialize in endurance performance for runners and post-injury rehabilitation for both athletes and non-athletes. If you have any questions, just shoot me an email!

What are the benefits of partnering with a personal trainer?
One could go on forever regarding the benefits of working with a coach who understands your personal needs and goals, but I'll stick to a few of the big ones:
Knowledge - Hard work is important, but it amounts to nothing (and sometimes leads to injury) if directed improperly. A surprisingly large amount of well-known running "truths" aren't actually true (the myth of lactic acid causing fatigue, for example - it is actually broken down into other metabolic substrates before it has a chance to cause fatigue or muscle pain). Working with someone who is up-to-date on the scientific literature and effective training methods can not only keep you healthier, but can give you an edge on race day.
Experience - Science tells us a lot, but it doesn't tell us everything. It takes a runner to understand a runner, and working with someone who has been in your shoes before can be a big deal. As someone who has done everything from struggling to finish my first 5K, to competing at the collegiate level and running ultras, to having multiple injuries knock me all the way back to square one, I'm confident that I can bring you the support that you need to succeed, whatever the situation.
Accountability - It can be difficult to find motivation when exercising on one's own. Having a coach there to check-in and encourage you can help keep you going on the days that you might rather be binging that TV show - not that you can't still binge; recovery is important!
Adaptability - Life is unpredictable and any number of things can derail a training plan from its initial track. Whether it's due to injury or unexpected in-laws, working with a coach who knows you personally can help keep things on track where an anonymously pre-written training plan cannot. Keeping a competent and invested trainer involved is important if you want to continue progressing because life will always happen.
