With over 16 years of coaching experience Brian was the Founder and Head Coach of WorkLiveTri, which he officially merged into the Tailwind Endurance family in 2016. Brian has a great understanding for the dilemma that many of you may be facing right now. We reach a point where we find it hard to imagine that we can do it all – manage our passion for training and competing with the responsibility to provide for our families and our desire to excel in our chosen professions.  Brian started coaching because he wanted to help others see that there is a way that you can do it –be a competitive triathlete, loving spouse, caring parent, great friend and productive employee.  His coaching business is built on the understanding that each athlete is different and needs to be treated that way – your goals, ability, family and work obligations, how much time you need to properly recover – is unique to your situation.  Working together with his athletes he believes that together we can get you on your way to creating a reality where you can have it all.

So You Think You Can Bike – Shifting

    I always find it a bit hard to talk to my clients about proper shifting without going into a little bit of a cycling history lesson.  The lesson that I focus on is the idea that cyclists used to ride the Tour De France (Td’F) on single speeds; yeah that race, with no ...
