SMART Coaching: Specialized Movement and Race Training. One of the most enticing things about endurance sports is that they are accessible to everyone. Anyone can train themselves to run in a race, participate in a triathlon, or ride a bike. With training on your own comes room for error. A lot of room for error.
As a physical therapist at a clinic that specializes in the treatment of endurance athletes, I see patients every day who come in due to various reasons: injuries due to overtraining, acute inflammatory injuries due to being underprepared for athletic activity, and biomechanical movement issues due to running or swimming with incorrect form. While some of these athletes are self-trained, many are not. Many are coached athletes, whose coach may be local or someone coaching them from afar. SMART coaching will help eliminate the error.
With my background as a physical therapist, a strength and conditioning coach, a movement specialist and an endurance athlete, I have the education, training and experience to coach an athlete to reach his or her potential while significantly reducing the risk of injury. By conducting a complete swim, bike, run, and movement (though the Selective Functional Movement Assessment) analysis, I will create an entirely individualized training plan based on the results of the assessment and your specific goals. Together, we will work to create a training plan that will work best for you, including all the tools you need to be successful.
