I'm the founder of Tribal Training, which has become an endurance team of 30+ athletes working toward goals like finishing their first 70.3 or Ironman.
My team is a mix of first-timers and athletes in their 2nd and 3rd year of endurance training.
I live in Boulder, CO with my wife, Chelsea, and our chocolate lab, Jameson. But he usually goes by Pig. Chels is pregnant and we're set to welcome Baby Dreyer in May 2023!
Back in 2019, I was living in Philly and working a 9-5 sales job.
I decided to create a spark in my life and set a goal to finish a 70.3.
Then I fell in love with endurance and redesigned my entire life around it.
My experiences in life have been determined by my mindset. And endurance saved mine.
I love writing and sharing my story. I'll link to a few notable posts below.
As a coach:
I help beginners break into endurance sports.
Then I help them develop as athletes and fall in love with the process. There are no quick hacks.
Most athletes I work with played sports in high school or college.
They have a deep, internal love for making progress in training and testing themselves in competition.
But both have been stripped away from them as life has progressed.
That's exactly what happened to me too.
I help athletes reclaim their competitive edge and instill the positive virtues that come with athletics.
What I enjoy most about coaching:
The 2 most rewarding aspects of coaching endurance are watching athletes develop confidence in training and then hearing from them after they cross a finish line.
They're filled with gratitude for the experience, respect for the challenge and a new belief in what they're capable of.
They ascend to a higher realm of existence.
Origins of Tribal Training:
Tribal Training was built by me tweeting about what I liked to do and how it was making me better.
It's growth is completely organic and made possible by my athletes talking positively about their experience in endurance (and working with me) online.
Tribal Training has evolved into a powerful organization of 30+ athletes from all over the country (and Australia - shoutout Rien!) with team training camps and races as ways to connect in-person throughout the year.
As I look back across my life, the times I've shined brightest are when I'm organizing groups of people around a positive, common interest and creating meaningful experiences that last a lifetime.
