Introduction - Train the Tetons
Skiing has been my passion since I was a kid and it has been my compass through life. I spent the majority of my time as an alpine ski racer. It was never an easy sport but it taught me how to push myself to achieve greater success. However, it took many years with coaches on and off the slopes that made my success possible. Once I finished my racing career and received my degree in Exercise and Sport Physiology I had a desire to share my knowledge and experience. Thus the start of my personal training career and this website!
I started teaching group classes at Wright Training in Jackson, Wyoming. Through the gym I gain a lot of experience working with a wide demographic of clientele. However, where I really found my stride in training was working with people that were recovering from injuries. It was fun for me to think of how their body may be developing compensations from their injury or even if their daily habits and what I needed to do to change it. I began living vicariously though the clientele, any time they felt like they were improving I felt like I was improving with them and it brought me a lot of joy. The positive feedback gave me purpose and I wanted to pursue it for as long as possible.
As a developed my skill set for training, I started thinking that maybe my advice would be helpful on an online platform, so I created Train the Tetons. However, I didn’t want this to just be a site for just my training.
Since I graduated and moved on past skiing racing, I transitioned to big mountain free skiing. This turn in the road for my ski career has been a challenging adventure, but it has also been some of the most enjoyable days of skiing I have ever had. In many ways I feel like I’m rediscovering the sport and want to share the experience.
This is a whole new venture for me and I am excited to share my stories and knowledge with you all. I hope that somewhere along the way you find some inspiration, passion, or motivation. Thank you for visiting my site and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
