My coach, Paul, saw something in me that I didn’t see. He insisted that I do hard things with weights. I got stronger, but more importantly I developed confidence.

I’ve done hard things all of my life – as we all have – but never thought I could do hard athletic things. Coach Paul taught me that I can.

Today I was going to try to swim 1000 yards without taking a rest. As I approached 750 yards I was wanting to quit. But it occurred to me that I can do hard athletic things. Not only did I get my 1000 yards done, but I did it at a pace I’ll need to have when I do my first 70.3 next June. This was my longest, fastest swim since my surgery. Thank you, Paul!

Thanks for being a great coach!

I recorded some significant power numbers yesterday on my ride with a racing buddy from the 1980s.

That flat roads force you keep pedaling at a steady state. We were just riding side by side, catching up on roads we trained on together. I was surprised to see all the power records come through on Garmin, even though my HR was mostly below threshold. Most significant:

My FTP before we started working together was 226. Yesterday, it was 276! Highest it's ever been, and we haven't even started to work on my cyclocross speed! Thanks for being awesome!

I met Paul several years ago when he led a cyclocross clinic that I attended. His passion for teaching/coaching athletes was evident even then.

After he started his coaching/personal training business in 2019, I threw my hat in the ring to be part of his “adventure crew” in 2021 and was ecstatic to be chosen! Paul shifted our focus to handle what I could while working to build my aerobic base from basically nothing leading into the offseason.

I have been well supported and well guided in the process of starting to regain my cycling fitness, learning a lot from Paul about things like Heart Rate Variability to help me train/recover more effectively. I highly recommend Paul as a coach/guide!

- Kevin T

I would recommend you to any person for your services and expertise.  I thoroughly enjoyed working with you, such a great guy!  You honestly have a lifelong referral source with me.  If you ever have someone on the edge of pulling the trigger on work with you, have them give me a call.  I'll push them over the edge for you!
