After completing my 2nd year of triathlons I knew I needed help to get to the next level. I had success in my 2nd year without knowing what the heck I was doing. I qualified for the IronMan 70.3 World Championship but had no idea I was literally training myself into the ground.

That’s when I turned to Mike for guidance. I contacted Mike after racing in the IronMan 70.3 World Championship with 2 stress fractures. We talked about my goals and I became what he later called his 2 year project. Unable to train due to injuries, Mike simply told me to get healthy and then we’d start working. With only 6 months to train, Mike guided me to a sub-11 IronMan.

Mike’s knowledge of periodization, interval sessions, long training, and recovery prepared me for IronMan St George where the goal was to qualify for Kona. When I wanted to really dial in my race nutrition Mike connected me with a nutritional expert. Mike pushed me as much as I needed but also knew when to hold back. He took time to find out how I was feeling during training and had me prepared to qualify. With Mike literally at my side at IronMan St George, the 2 year project came to fruition and we qualified for Kona.

Mike has become more than just a coach. He has become a friend. He came to Kona with my family. He stayed with us in our Kona condo. He was kind enough to help with race day preparation and even helped with our kids.

Whether you’re looking to prepare for your first Sprint or IronMan, Mike will listen and provide you with all the training and tools you need to succeed.
Thanks….Rick
