I love the sports of swimming and triathlon, and want others to be inspired and challenged, and hopefully come to love the sport as well. Combined with my passion for teaching, I began coaching triathletes, with a focus on efficient training and correct biomechanical movement.
One of my primary targets is to get you through the swim as easy as possible. This is obtained by working on technique and smooth swimming, and usually also means that the speed is increased significantly. The end result is a faster swim, with less energy spent, and more juice for the remaining race.
I have a background as a competitive swimmer, representing the Danish National Team, and winning several conference titles in Division I for American University. After my swimming career was winding down, I set my sights on triathlons, where I could still use my swimming skills, while adding new personal challenges and goals.
In addition to my active career, I have been coaching swimming for close to 20 years, ranging from kids to Division I athletes. The last several years my focus has been on training triathletes.
Sometimes I can be a bit of a nerd, and love trying to improve upon the little details. I have acquired a lot of experience and effective teaching techniques, which can help triathletes prevent injuries, become faster and more efficient, and improve on their race day experiences.
