Nate has been coaching endurance athletes of all skill levels, ages and walks of life since 1990. As a self-coached triathlete, he has successfully blended his personal approach to athletic excellence with the knowledge he’s gleaned from the top coaches for whom he’s competed over the years. Nate also learns a lot directly from the athletes he coaches. Their diverse backgrounds, sports of choice and levels of talent pose different challenges when Nate creates each athlete’s customized training program geared toward optimizing his or her performance.
This blended approach – combining personal experience, knowledge gained from the mentor/athlete relationship and his ongoing research into how to constantly do things better - has provided Nate with a very balanced and realistic program in which his athletes thrive and excel.
Nate works with a small body of athletes to ensure that each gets the personal attention he or she deserves. He does not use “cookie cutter” training programs because he believes that an athlete needs a personalized schedule to best fit his or her unique life situation. Athletics is only one dimension of a multi-faceted person.
