Your results are our results. If you go fast, then you're happy, you keep us as your coach, and you're more likely to refer us to others. We consistently keep our clients healthy and produce PR's year after year. If you want to see how we're doing, check the recent news section on the home page and the coaching results page.


Your training plan will never look exactly like a program for someone else we coach.  Everyone has different life stress and work/travel comitments that need to be considered.  The personality, goals, amount of time you have to devote to training, training/racing history, and injury history are a few more of the factors that have to be considered in each persons training plan.


Zach has been a triathlete for 18 years and a coach for 10 years.  Our assistants have been trained well and all have deep racing experience as well as a strong foundation in endurance sport education.  In addition all coaches have been chosen not only for their racing success and dedication to the sport, but also by their post high school degrees.  We've all learned a great deal through trial and error and I've passed down to my coaches what I've learned by training with some of the best coaches and triathletes in the world.  We continue to race and try to learn more everyday.
