Online or In-person if Local
Becky has been a triathlete herself since 2014. She became licensed and started working as a physical therapist in 2019. She works with a lot of endurance athletes in her outpatient physical therapy clinic and often sees large training errors or a lack of appropriate education provided to endurance athletes, leading to injury and overtraining. This education gap led Becky to pursue her USA Triathlon Coaching certification to help assist athletes not just with injuries but also with safe and effective programming.
Nick has been an avid cyclist for 20+ years. He spent time racing with the Freddie Fu Cycling team in Pittsburgh in category 1/2 races. He also was a State Champion in Cyclocross racing in Pennsylvania. He now enjoys running, mountain biking, road, and gravel cycling. As a registered dietitian, Nick also frequently sees athletes struggle with appropriate fueling due to misinformation or simply a lack of education in the area of nutrition. He loves to help athletes learn how to fuel appropriately for success in both racing and in life.
