Bold Strong Resilient Grateful

Your Questions, My Answers

Where does the training take place?

Many of my clients are from Puyallup and surrounding areas.  For coaching sessions we often meet at Sparks Stadium and other local tracks and nearby trails.  I also have many clients in the Seattle area and I am often available Fridays near Greenlake.  For coaching sessions requiring more equipment, I contract with Olympic Sports and Spine Rehabilitation.  Consultations are usually at a Starbucks location in the Puyallup or Seattle area.  Just contact me.  I am sure we will find a solution that fits you well!

Do you run with me?

Since I follow my own training plan and adhere to the advice of my own coach I don't usually run with clients.  Occasionally my training needs line up with the training needs of clients and I enjoy running together.  I do often ride my ElliptiGO with clients for runs off the track.

What are your certifications?

  • BS in Exercise Science from Seattle Pacific University - 2003
  • Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) - 2006
  • United States Track and Field (USATF) Level 1 coaching certification - 2013

Why should I spend money on a running coach?

My goal is to offer you a personalized coaching experience that is tailored to your specific training needs, interactive and effective in reaching your goals.  I am highly educated, experienced and motivating.  You are sure to learn a lot with me and have fun doing it!

How often should I train with you?

Many clients thrive by following the training plan and having one coaching session per week.  Some clients prefer to meet for coaching sessions twice a week.  And other clients prefer only following the training plan with no coaching sessions.  I am happy to make recommendations based on your needs, but this is entirely up to each client and their desired level of interaction.

How do I pay?

The Cash App through Square is how I accept payment from most clients.  There is a very small 1.9% fee but my clients find the ease of the service is more than worth it.  I also accept checks and cash (exact change please!).
