My Story

I have been addicted to endurance sports my whole life, but it wasn’t until 2002 when I began training for and then competing in my first endurance events. It wasn’t very long after I started to compete and increase my training hours that injury started to pop up. As a committed athlete, with goals in mind, I did whatever I could do to get patched up by local professionals to ensure that I could still train and compete. In 2006, debilitating injury caught up with me and brought all of my training and competing to a screeching halt. At the time injury felt like the worst thing that ever happened to me, but I quickly realized that the injury was my greatest gift. It was at this time that I was just creating Endurance for Life and this injury made me realize that I needed to change my approach as an athlete and a coach.

I realized that neither me, nor any of my athletes, could achieve our goals if sick or injured so at that point I started to train myself and to coach my athletes with LONGEVITY in mind.

I BELIEVE

  • You can’t fully perform as an athlete without including an injury prevention training program and coaching for the whole person.

  • You’re capable of anything, but you have to listen to and maintain your body. The simple action of listening to your body will permit longevity.

  • Longevity training plus body maintenance is the holy grail for athletes. You can do this the hard way, or the longevity way.

  • If you don’t make time for body maintenance, you have to make time for injury. Almost all injuries as an athlete can be prevented.

  • Age is a choice. Injury is optional. If you learn how to do your sport well, with proper body maintenance, you can do it for eternity!

  • Getting to the start line injury and illness free is the ultimate goal.
  • Training is a great accomplishment, It’s like ticking off a hundred boxes instead of just one box at the finish line.

  • Small changes in technique can make a big difference. It’s not about working harder, it’s about being more efficient.
