I found Mountain Biking by way of triathlon, first traditional and then Xterra. After years of multisport racing I chose to focus on my favorite of the three disciplines, obviously cycling, MTB to be specific! I competed in my first LT 100 MTB race in 2010 after earning a spot through the Life Time essay contest as a member. Today, I have 10 LT 100 MTB finishes all under 9 hours and am the proud possessor of the 1,000 mile buckle! Not long after my first LT 100 MTB finish, my wife and I moved from Arizona back to our true home of Colorado, where I leveraged my USA Cycling and USA Triathlon coaching certifications to begin my career with Life Time. Over the last decade as a Life Time team member, I have navigated the ranks in the training department, experiencing virtually every position that interfaces with athletes and members. Today, I am blessed to build and develop high performing teams of fitness professionals with this amazing company, and I have coached everyone from pro/elites to novice health enthusiasts loving every interaction I’ve had. Nothing brings me joy like pursuing my calling to facilitate the love of health and fitness in others… except when I can do it on a bike! I’m stoked to serve again as a camp guide and coach, and I look forward to the relationships I’ll build this summer!
