"I love sports and coaching and want to give back to the development of  junior cyclists."

 

  

 

  

Cycling is a sport that has made me reach deep within myself and search for the inner me. 

In 2005 and at 6’3” 248 pounds.  I wasn’t exactly the best build for competitive cycling but wanted to get back into athletic performance. In the beginning, I struggled to even ride and keep up in many group rides. I have found that through a focused training plan and a proper nutritional plan any rider will see vast improvements in their riding ability, health and motivational levels.

I continue to strive to improve my educational level on health, nutrition, training and cycling through continuing education seminars. 

I grew to love the sport and with the induction of my youngest son into cycling, I wanted to use my years of “coaching experience” and the ability to relate with junior athletes to guide him and all juniors on the team through a positive and exciting cycling experience.

In 2009, I became the head coach for the Orlando Road Club (ORC) and spent many wonderful years developing and mentoring the juniors on ORC into fine athletes, experienced cyclists and amazing your men.

My true passion is to continue to provide individualized “one on one” coaching services to athletes while always maintaining the best interest of the athlete in mind and not to that of my own.  

I want to prepare the rider for higher level competition, a comprehensive training PROGRAM and to enjoy the process along the way.

I have been honored and fortunate enough to be selected by USAC to coach at USAC Southeast Development Camp in Greenville S.C, in 2010, FBRA Florida Junior cycling camps in 2011 and 2012.
