More About Dave

For over a decade, I have helped athletes of all levels achieve more than they thought possible through a winning combination of art and science. I am a committed, empathetic, and driven coach dedicated to helping you optimize your training around your schedule. As a husband, father of two and competitive athlete myself—I get it.

As the former Director of Education at TrainingPeaks, I spent years teaching coaches how to use data to plan, analyze and track the performance of athletes at all levels across an array of endurance goals. While I do utilize all of the latest science and tools in my coaching, I generally like to keep it simple, and I emphasize the importance of the mind-body connection in athletic performance. My ultimate goal is to help you find your limits and then push beyond them in order to achieve things you never thought possible, whether it’s finishing your first 100-mile mountain bike race, or winning a championship.
