Iím a passionate competitor, and Iím even more passionate about applying what I know to help other athletes reach and maintain their maximum levels of performance. I have combined a varied and unique background to position myself as the coach who can help you reach your performance goals. Iíve been there, done that and now want to help you achieve success.

First and foremost, I bring both experience and education to the table.

Experience: I grew up as a sports-mad kid, and my repertoire included competitive swimming, baseball, soccer, rugby and cricket. Swimming was my first love, and I had aspirations of a collegiate swimming career; however, a turn in the road led me to the Navy where I really pursued a career in swimming. I was a designated helicopter search-and-rescue swimmer Ė the guys who jump out of perfectly good helicopters to rescue people in the ocean Ė and hold the distinction of being one of the best Helicopter Rescue Swimmers in the Navy and Coast Guard.

While deployed, I took up cycling and running as well, enjoying 5k road races along with swim meets on base. Not long after that, I entered my first sprint triathlon and was hooked. Iím an elite amateur triathlete, former NCAA Division III Cross Country runner, and former beach & surf rescue lifeguard.

Education: In the Navy, I served as the training officer for 70 rescue swimmers, and before being honorably discharged, I was accepted at Penn State where Iím pursuing a B.S. degree in kinesiology. Iíve completed in-depth studies of exercise physiology, kinesiology, anatomy, nutrition and sport psychology, and apply what I know as part of my coaching methodology. Iím also a USA Triathlon (USAT) Certified Level 1 Coach, USAT Youth & Junior Certified Coach, and have USAT Race and Ironman Race referee status.

TriGuy Multisport Coaching, launched in 2009, is the culmination of my experiences and education. I know the challenges you face as an athlete to achieve your best, having faced the same things myself. Plus Iíve combined my educational experiences and background to provide you with the training plans, webinars, endurance and nutritional information, and face-to-face coaching techniques that will help you unlock your potential and truly achieve your maximum performance.

I invite you to learn more about the foundational principles we believe at TriGuy Multisport coaching and contact us to schedule an initial phone consultation, so you can take the first steps on your path to success.

Thanks and Best Wishes!
