LET’S START WITH YOU.
You thrive on challenge. You’re always looking for ways to master your craft and stretch your limits. You’re a self-starter, but you’re curious how much further you could stretch with the right support.
You’re not afraid of hard work, but you know there’s more to the puzzle than just the work. You’re not interested in a low value, one-size-fits-all training plan. You want a smarter, elevated experience that was designed specifically for you.
Feeling strong and fit is a significant part of this for you, but it’s also about something bigger: discovery, adventure, and growth.
You want to breathe in the high mountain air at the top of a mountain pass after having pedaled yourself to the top. You don’t want to simply survive the long climbs, you want to feel ****ing awesome.
You want to feel excited when your alarm goes off at 4am to train in the rain on Lake Washington, because you know you have something significant to contribute to your team.
Most of all, you want to explore the best of you. You want to crack open the gold mine of confidence you feel when you start overcoming obstacles that once stood in your way.
Why opt for one-on-one coaching when there is so much free information right at your fingertips?
Because this should be about you.
Your goals. Your values. Your learning style. Your personality. Your schedule. Your physiology.
Coaching is an investment, and you deserve a huge return on that investment. To start, you should have:
You should have peace of mind in knowing the why behind what you’re doing, and how it relates specifically to you.
Your time is precious. You should know that your training has a specific purpose, one aimed to highlight your strengths while pushing you to keep growing.
Confidence is about feeling ready. When you feel ready, you feel confident to accept new challenges, take risks, and stretch your limits.
But going through the motions of training doesn’t necessarily create confidence.
Confidence comes through seeing growth, feeling change, and through your efforts and progress being recognized.
Masterful coaching ensures that you feel ready, that you feel confident, and that you know exactly what tools to use, and when, so you’re ready to overcome the obstacles that want to stand in your way.
LEADING YOUR TEAM
You’re a team leader looking to inspire both your coaches and your athletes. You want more than just new information, you want it coalesced in a way that creates unity, identity, and meaning for your team.
Not sure what your athletes and coaches need? Start with their sticking points. Start with the barriers impeding their progress and creating frustration. I will design content that will light a fire and illuminate the path forward.

EMPOWERING WOMEN ATHLETES
Guess what, ladies? The majority of exercise science materials out there are written by men, for men.
Through 6 years of formal education in human performance, not once were women’s-specific training and nutrition needs covered—I had to work to find material specifically catered to women’s biochemistry.
Fortunately, women’s-specific sources do exist now, and we need to support those sources!
The reality is, women’s physiology is different than men’s. Not inferior, just different.
As a female athlete who has coached hundreds of other hard working, badass female athletes, I have a particular fire burning within to empower women athletes. That empowerment starts with knowledge.
As a female athlete—or coach of a women’s team—you need to know:
-How estrogen, progesterone, FSH, and LH alter the way you or your athletes feel, perform, and metabolize food.
(For pre and post-menopausal women: How your biochemistry changes as you age, and how that impacts your training, nutrition, and recovery needs).
-What you can do to take control
-And (this is important!) how all this differs from the needs of male athletes.
Why do you care how it differs from men’s needs?
Because the majority of material you read about training, nutrition, and recovery is written with a male body in mind. And you want to know how to filter through all that and make it work for you.
These conversations are not about compromise, they are about being savvy.
Let’s take charge, ladies.
