Head Coaches:

Coach Mike

USA Triathlon Level 1 certified coach
NASM Certified Personal Trainer

Mike has 17 years of competitive athletic experience and over 4 years of triathlon coaching experience.  He has competed and trained in numerous sports including football, wrestling, taekwondo, boxing, mixed martial arts and running before realizing that triathlon was his true calling.  He combines a data-driven / scientific approach with a strong focus on improving one's mental game.  Mike believes most limitations are self-imposed and perceived rather than true limitations; he specializes in breaking down these perceptions and helping athletes reach the next level.  Mike has a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Computer Science from Cornell University and has completed graduate level coursework in Applied Physiology at Columbia University.  Strangely, he believes Computer Science is the perfect background for a triathlon coach--if you're curious why, he might just tell you over a "recovery beverage."



Coach Ton

USA Triathlon Level 1 certified coach
RRCA certified Endurance Running coach

After 12 years as a practitioner and coach of Taekwondo and other martial arts, Ton eventually found his bliss in the world of endurance sports.  He has completed countless marathons, century bike rides, and triathlons of all distances (including the Ironman) on three different continents.   A devoted student of proven training methods, Ton has drawn from his vast racing and coaching experience to guide many athletes across their own blissful finish lines.  Ton has also given numerous seminars and lectures on relevant topics such as "Effective Fueling for Endurance Athletes" to "Training vs. Race Pacing".
