About

World-class triathlon coaching
in Tucson, AZ

It’s not just about the results. The best results come from enjoying the process
I understand you hire a coach for results… to reach your potential. I also know, from 30 years of racing and training, the best results come from enjoying the process.
In addition to making sure you are moving forward in your training, I want to make sure all the athletes I coach are enjoying their time training. The results speak for them self.


How a guy from Rhode Island ended up in Tucson, Arizona

At the end of 2019, my family had the opportunity to relocate to Tucson, AZ. As a life-long New Englander, it was a difficult decision…okay, it was the middle of winter, and not that difficult a decision. I previously ran training camps in Tucson, and fell in love with the area. Moving here full-time provides me an exciting new opportunity to expand my coaching services to include new friends & athletes, more training camps, Swim Smooth video analysis and swim groups (in outdoor pools), and expanded running & triathlon coaching.

I will be traveling back to New England regularly to allow for meeting with athletes and Swim Smooth video analysis.

I coach athletes on a global basis, so regardless of your location, we can help you reach your potential.
