Once upon a time I dined daily at Burger King and McDonald, helping me get up to 210 lbs. After a radical cleansing of my diet and learning to exercise, I lost a lot of the weight. I eventually found triathlon, and after 10 years of racing, 7 of which professionally, I've been lucky to travel the world racing, and have gained a valuable experience through racing and training. I have always worked full time and have never trained and raced full time. For the first 3 years of my career I was a hardcore blue-collar heavy duty mechanic, a very physically demanding job, during which I became a provincial and national AG champion. For the last 8 years I've been a full-time fire fighter, 7 of those years racing professionally and have made many professional podiums in Ironman and Challenge events. I understand the intricacies of training and racing at a very high level while working a full time job. I had a son this year, and I understand the delicate nature of balancing a full training and racing schedule with diaper changes and raising a family. It's a tough balance, but I am ready to coach athletes through a busy work/life schedule to help them achieve their triathlon goals.
