Top athletes from every sport have coaches. A coach has a different perspective than the athlete and provides valuable feedback that is often hard to see and recognize from the athlete perspective. A coach can also help instruct and teach you new concepts and while also organizing multiple principles and concepts together so they work in concert to help you achieve new levels of performance. They help answer the questions of what workouts you should be doing and at what intensities and for what duration. Having too little and having too much can both have negative effects on overall performance and a coach will help you find the right balance for your current and future ability levels.
It is my mission to help athletes train and prepare for races in a smarter, more purposeful manner. I want to help my athletes achieve new levels of fitness and reach the start line of a race fresh and prepared and finish the race surprised by how well they did. Proper preparation prevents poor performance and I want to help my clients ensure that they are properly prepared to tackle any race of any length.
This is an article that I collaborated with Shawn Burke, PHD from "The Science of Paddling" where it breaks down planning your yearly training season. I use these principles to come up with a plan specific to your racing goals. I ask my athletes to read this to understand the concepts we will be working with through the year
