MY MISSION : To Encourage
ENCOURAGEMENT is the first of two things that I use to keep a person on track to accomplish a fitness goal. The second is helping them accomplish a multitude of small but significant successes along the way. I believe that it is a gift and my calling to do both!
Success is based on teamwork. A turtle will never sit on top of a fence without a little help (think about it). I can provide the plan, the program, the tools, the technique, the advice, the schedule and, most importantly, the encouragement! However, it is ultimately up to the individual to make the effort.
Fortunately, with the right motivation, anything is possible! And for me, there is no greater pleasure than providing the right encouragement to work hard, grow strong and change your life.
MY MISSION : To Inspire
Being a professional triathlete has definite advantages - the primary one being a means to INSPIRE those that I have the good fortune to serve.
A combination of an active childhood, a rewarding high school and collegiate basketball and running career, and a fitness-focused education has made me well suited to pursue my two greatest passions: competing athletically and training others to do the same. Along the way, I have discovered that, in disciplining myself for professional competition, I am setting an example that others are inspired to follow!
In return, that inspires ME to continue to do my best, compete strong, and always be thankful. Success is not always about winning races.. but it IS always about being a positive role model to those around you.
