What some Clients are saying

"I am a new Triathlete. I have been a marathon runner who decided to switch to Triathlons this January. Derek began working with me on swimming. His guidance and tips have helped me to learn to swim efficiently, streamlined and with ease. Derek has been available during multiple training sessions on the bike, in open water and running. Offering small tips and corrections in real time. These tips truly help to round out the experience and I am looking forward to pulling it all together in my upcoming race season."

"As someone who didn't start swimming until my late 40’s, Derek's guidance has helped me immeasurably. Learning a skill, such as swimming, as an adult is quite challenging, but Derek's coaching has given me the confidence to train [and finish] for a half Ironman.

I've found his training program is well thought out and considers my strengths and weaknesses. In addition to a written program, he has given me one on one time in the water and on the road. He's always willing to make our training time about whatever I'm equipped to do that day. I'm grateful that he's helped me take my training to a new level."

"Hi Derek,

I just wanted to thank you again for helping me train for this . It was awesome !! What a beautiful course and I finished, so that's always good !!.... Slow , but did it and loved it !!

Thank you so much for your support , I appreciate it"
