PROBLEM #1: Stuggling To Lose Weight?
One of the best ways for endurance athletes to increase their speed and power is by losing weight. For endurance athletes, weight loss can be tricky. If you lose it too fast, performance and recovery will suffer. If you lose it too slow, you may lose motivation, although the latter has its perks.
Endurance athletes looking to lose weight are bombarded every day with marketing from weight loss supplement companies, promotion of fad diets, and misinformation. My mission is to bust myths and offer sustainable solutions.
I help endurance athletes create their own simple weight loss system that can be maintained for life using mainly whole foods. Nutritional supplements are only recommended under very specific circumstances.
How do I help? Scientific-backed educational courses, live webinars, online weight loss challenges, habit development programs, detailed meal plans, guides, ebooks, and more.

PROBLEM #2: Lack of Core Strength
Your core is not your abs. Your core consists of over 35 muscle groups that help to support and stabilize the spine. Yes, absolutely, there is a right and wrong way to train your core. Core training is highly misunderstood and often demonstrated incorrectly on social media.
We must train the core in a way that spares the spine. You will NOT find crunches, weighted side-bends, and planks that last for minutes on end in my programs. However, you will find exercises such as Bird-Dog, McGill curl-up, and Stir the Pot.
It is through a strong and stable core in which we can generate great power. As endurance athletes, we express that power through our limbs to perform our sport. If we train our core properly and consistently, we can increase speed, power and endurance effectively while reducing our risk of injury.
How do I help? I utilize Dr. Stuar McGill’s teachings for core training in my programs and plans. There is a heavy focus on developing muscular endurance so the spine is supported and stabilized during those long rides, runs, and so on. It is not necessary to lift extremely heavy weights to achieve this. In fact, you can do it with just your body weight.
To maximize utilization of time, most of my core strength training programs are in fact for the whole body. I choose specific exercises so athletes can get an all-in-one approach. Strength training is also KEY for weight loss. Again – efficiency!

PROBLEM #3: Not Training Efficiently
I know what you are thinking – “There are hundreds of endurance coaches and thousands of training plans. How can yours be any different.?”
Every coach has a unique style and that is largely driven by our own unique experiences and knowledge. We have our own theories and philosophies too. There are many ways you can go about training for a marathon, a century ride, or an Ironman.
How do I help? My training plans have three key features.
1) They are easy to read and follow. I use simple terms and structure so the athlete doesn’t require a technical or scientific background to understand the plan. The goal is to tell the athletes, in as few words as possible, what needs to be done, the main objective for that session, and why it’s important to their overall goal.
2) All plans follow industry-standard guidelines for specific athletic levels. If the plan states it is for a beginner athlete then the training plan is structured using beginner training guidelines. I also use important training principles in my plans such as progressive overload, recovery, specificity. My plans are periodized and included phases such as prep, base, build, peak, race week, recovery, and off-season.
3) Efficiency! The majority of my plans use a minimalistic structure unless otherwise stated. Most of the athletes I have coached are juggling full-time lives with family, work, and other commitments. Training sessions are designed to get the best bang for your efforts while managing energies and omitting “junk training.” I work in weight loss and strength training so it all jives.
