I am an Elite Age Group Triathlete who has began to run in the Ultra Endurance Events. My passion for endurance sports has pushed me to pursue my degree in Advanced Personal Training and Exercise Science from Bryan University. I want to make my drive and my passion your success as well. The military life gives me access to many resources and tools that will help me make you successful.
I started as a Mountain Biker and quickly found that there wasn't much MTB going on in Hawaii. I have always been an avid runner, so I decided that adding in swimming, I could do a triathlon. Well after my first Sprint Triathlon I was hooked. The passion for the sport has grown and brought me to where I am today. Using my desire and wealth of knowledge in the position to make other athletes successful. A father of two wonderful children and a supportive wife, I know what it is like to be busy. I can make sure your training plan seamlessly melts into your schedule so you can maximize your family and social life along with your training time.
I have always led an active lifestyle. I recently moved to the island of Oahu, HI and decided that I would challenge myself to complete a triathlon. I did a quick google search, ended up on Training Peaks website and got in contact with Coach Justin.
I am married with 3 boys and I serve in the United States Army. I have always known about training, but when it came to training for a triathlon I knew I needed some help. Being in the military, my schedule is often full and unpredictable. These are some of the obstacles that I spoke with Coach Justin about and he understood the unique problems the military lifestyle brings. He being in the military as well, he has ran into many of these problems himself. He took his experience and with my input about schedule and family designed a Training Program that not only puts me on a path to success, but reduces the amount of time that I am not with my family. I love the fact that some of my workouts, or even recovery days include my family.
I am quickly approaching my first Triathlon. I would love to take a Podium Place there and continue to compete in all the Triathlons I can this year. My capstone for the year is the Honolulu Marathon. I want to complete it this year under 3 hours and 30 minutes.
I first met Coach Justin when he lived near Cumming, GA. We actually rode quite a few trails together while he lived in the Peach State. He always pushed me to be my best and I always looked forward to hitting the dirt with him.
In 2016 He moved to the island of Oahu, HI but we kept in touch. I recently took up interest in Endurance Sports and Triathlons. I reached out to Coach Justin and Archangel Fitness in order to better prepare myself the 3 and 6 Hour ChainBuster Races that I decided to try. Knowing me and knowing Mountain Biking he knew exactly how to tailor a program that put me on the Podium. I even finished in the Top 3 overall for the entire season. Seeing him compete and win at Triathlons peaked my interest. Again, I looked to Coach Justin to see if he could quickly get me ready for a Triathlon in only a few weeks. He built of my endurance from Mountain Biking and I officially became a triathlete.
The way Coach Justin integrates the program into your life makes being an Endurance Athlete easy. I am married with 3 wonderful kids. You can imagine, they keep me pretty busy. I also work in the Tree Health and Removal Industry. Somehow he makes workouts seamlessly flow with my life and even includes workouts that my family can get into. Instead of training being a burden on my Family life, it is actually a welcome addition.
I look to complete a Half-Ironman Distance triathlon this year and continue to compete in the ChainBuster Endurance Races and the Duathlons put on by Mountain Goat Adventures.
