General Info


We at Zoom Performance strive to be your partner in a life-long journey of fitness. By forging relationships with our athletes built on trust, we provide them the knowledge, confidence, and skills for success.


As a Zoom Performance client, rest assured that you are receiving the best training advice and service and can approach us at any time with a concern. If any service we provide does not meet your standards, let us know - not only will we ensure you are 100% satisfied, but we will learn from the experience.


I was a Zoom athlete before becoming a coach, and have learned that triathlon is about the journey more so than the race. It is a journey that will challenge you mentally, physically and spiritually. Whether you are brand new to the sport or have a few years under your belt, I am confident that we can work together to shape a plan that meets your goals and holds you accountable, yet still maintains a balance with family and work. Just don’t be surprised when you exceed those goals!
Rates & Fees: Rates/Fees can be seen under my coaching profile at http://www.getzoomperformance.com/page.php?pageID=97
Training Camps Offered: We offer an IM Wisconsin camp annually. We will also look to add a Tuscon camp in early 2012. Email for more info.
Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
