Core Coaching Values


Every athlete is an individual. While basic principles of physiology can be applied to all athletes, how we implement and adapt those principles to fit each athlete must be individualized.


Never sacrifice health for performance. As a Physical Therapist I believe that nurturing and maintaining health through training, nutrition, injury prevention and recovery will produce long-term consistency and better athletic performance.


Life and training must be balanced to maintain health and harmony. During times of high stress, training will have to be adjusted to maintain this balance. Choose athletic goals based on life situation.


Be as efficient and effective as possible with training prescription. Be present in the session, have a purpose, and maintain the goal of that session.


A training schedule must be adapted frequently to how the athlete is feeling and recovering. This requires good communication from the coach on how a session or block of sessions should be performed, and effective feedback from the athletes as well.


Training and racing must be fun. Maintaining a great attitude and smile throughout training and racing should be emphasized.
