"I worked with Eric during the 2002-2003 triathlon season. At the beginning of the year I made a list of goals I wanted to accomplish, which my main goal was to qualify for the Ironman World Championships in the highly competitive M30-34 age group. Eric was able to formulate a training plan to help me achieve my goals and help guide me through my training. He was readily available to help me with any questions I had from race day nutrition to answering why I was doing certain workouts and how they would help me in my racing. He was also able to adapt my training plan throughout the year to ensure I reached my 'A' race with highest level of fitness I could possibly achieve. Well, his plan worked and in my second year of triathlon training and my first Ironman I qualified for Hawaii at IMC with 9:53 as well as a 3:11 marathon which was the fastest in my age group. It was a great experience working with Eric and would recommend his coaching to anyone wanting to achieve their personal best. Eric truly cares about and works hard to ensure his athletes success. The rest is up to you."
Qualified for Ironman Hawaii in his second year of racing
"I decided to utilize a personal coach when I started training for my first duathlon and it was a great investment. Eric's coaching style is realistic with my lifestyle and time restraints. His focus on the enjoyment of the sport and quality over quantity enabled me to have a successful and satisfying first racing season. Eric's attention to my individual goals and his great attitude in transitioning me to a new sport led me to qualify for Team USA and finish a difficult race at Worlds in Switzerland. My continual progress and marked improvement is a direct result of Eric's sound training methods."
First time duathlete
"When I was looking for a coach, I did not want to just use a triathlon plan that dropped the swim. Duathletes needs are different from triathletes. That is why Eric is such a great coach. As a professional duathlete, he gives you duathlon training, not triathlon training minus the swim. With his help, I have improved dramatically and have qualified for two Team USA duathlon teams. He is very responsive and truly cares about his athletes."
"Eric's workouts are varied, interesting and produce results. I am faster, stronger and hold a peak longer following Eric's sound training techniques and race strategies."
