Team Amazing Day coaches hold a wide variety of certifications including USAT Level 1, TrainingPeaks Certified Coach, NASM-CPT, USA Swimming & RRCA. We have attended seminars and lectures on topics ranging from nutrition to sport-specific coaching, skill development, gait and whole-body movement analysis, anatomy, physiology, injury prevention, and improving performance through mental strength. Through our home in Boulder, CO, athletes have access to the same resources and support that professional athletes have. We host annual run and multisport training camps hosted out of RallySport Health & Fitness, home to many current and former professional athletes including 70.3 and Ironman World Champions.
Training is done through a holistic approach to endurance that involves training by heart rate, power and paces that are specific to each athlete. Athletes receive customized daily schedules that include swim, bike, run and strength workouts, as well as individualized support for specific weaknesses, building mental strength, nutrition both in and out of training, race planning and pacing as well as balancing training against a busy lifestyle. We also offer single-sport training plan options which allow self-sufficient athletes to join our team at an affordable cost.
We work with a broad spectrum of athletes, ranging from beginners tackling their first 5K to experienced triathletes looking to get stronger and faster for their next ironman. Founded in 2012, our athletes have consistently set PRs, stood atop podiums, and qualified for events such as the Boston Marathon, Aquathlon, Duathlon, 70.3 and Ironman World Championships. Our belief is that endurance training is merely a vehicle for change in life. And as much as we are thrilled when athletes PR a race or complete a distance for the first time, we are just as proud to watch our athletes grow and change as people, to see them becoming more powerful, more relentless, more brave, and more joyful.
I am addicted to endurance sports, there is no doubt about that. I’ve seen seven ironman finish lines, completed over a dozen 70.3s and hundreds of other race distances including a 2nd place finish at USMS National Championships and 70.3 World Championships. I love being part of the journey an athlete ventures on when seeking health, happiness, and fitness and I never want to stop investing in my own education as coach. My goal is to support athletes who want to live a healthier lifestyle, who are looking to seek balance and wish to train smarter & more consistently without losing the joy of sport.
I ran my first half-marathon as a senior in college and never looked back! The experience was an important piece of the nutrition + exercise health equation, helping me come full circle in connecting the way diet affects what we do and how well we do it. In the years of running endurance events that followed, I’ve progressed as an athlete by cultivating a deeper understanding of how important nutrition is for both performance, muscle building, and especially recovery. As a wellness coach and sports nutritionist I continue to learn, evolve and experiment as both a dietitian and an endurance athlete. I believe strongly in the power of a clean diet with whole (tasty!) foods, and love working with people to find what works best for them.
As an athlete, I train by the MAF method and have adopted aspects of this style into my approach to nutrition with both myself and my clients. Finding the balance in health-promoting foods, mindful eating and stress management helps tap each individual’s true potential.
