Happy Triathlete Coaching!



After dipping my toe in the world of coaching individual athletes in 2017, I'm happy to announce that I'm opening up my services to take on additional athletes for 2018!

Last season, my very first athlete approached me with a proposition to work together. I agreed... as long as she didn't mind being a bit of a guinea pig.  After working together from February to August, I feel like it is fair to say that we both learned a lot and had a lot of fun in the process.   Later in the season, I took on another athlete, who recently completed her very first 70.3!

It was a great learning experience for me to work one-on-one with these women.

So, I am excited to continue to build my roster of athletes, and if you are looking for a coach for 2018, I would love for you to consider working with me.

In particular, I love working with female triathletes.  Over the past year, I've spent a fair bit of time researching and applying a female athlete centered approach, one that seeks to maximize training and racing around the female hormonal cycle.  In case you're not aware of this movement, the jist is that, "women are not small men," and that the training, hydration, nutrition, and recovery needs of female athletes are different from men (and vary from woman to woman).  And guess what?! It is pretty effective!  So if you're a female athlete and interested in trying something new, I'd be happy to have a chat with you to see if this approach might be beneficial to you.  (Spoiler alert: it probably will be!)

But have no fear, I am also more than happy to work with anyone, female or male / Ottawa local or remote, who wants to be a happier, healthier, and hopefully, faster triathlete.
