Student Athletes

Balancing school and training is no small feat. Trust me, I know. I’ve spent a majority of my life so far trying to do it.

Do you have a friend on a sports team, and find yourself wishing you had that kind of support for your athletic goals?

Maybe you’re on a team and need some help tweaking your training plan to fit other areas of life.

Or if you’re a Senior in college and panicking about what comes after graduation, maybe you’d like a Life Coach as much as an endurance coach!

Let’s chat, folks, I’ve got thoughts on all of that!


Maybe you’re here on behalf of your son or daughter. If you are the parent of a middle or high school athlete, I am excited to offer an in-person Buddy Training program, if you are Where I Am Now.

Student athletes often have excellent resources throughout the school year, but these program lack continuity throughout the summer months. Buddy Training is designed with the summer in mind, and can be customized entirely to fit the needs of the athlete. Working with the athlete, parents, and other coaches if applicable, I will help design a training plan for the athlete if they do not already have one. I will then be a daily resource for them to check in with thoughts or questions about the day’s workout.

Then we’ll meet up once or twice a week to do a workout together. This provides the athlete with:

  • Company for their training
  • Feedback from a personal coach
  • Transportation to training venues if needed
  • Accountability and consistency throughout the summer

If the athlete has specific competitive goals in Nordic skiing or running, I am very happy to work with them to execute a training plan that will set them up for competitive success. For all other endurance sports including cycling, mountain biking, field sports, or swimming, I am happy to work with athletes who have general training goals. I also enjoy building strength training workouts with endurance athletes of all types. I find rock climbing to be an excellent natural strength workout, so if desired, climbing could be part of our weekly meetups.

The program can be continued beyond the summer months, or I would be happy to consider taking on a student athlete as a personal coaching client.
