Coaching Philosophy
Go ahead…dream out loud!  Jimi loves helping his athletes dream big and reach their goals.  He is focused on excellent communication, individualized workouts and taking all of his athletes to the next level.  He has coached all levels of athletes, ranging from the beginner who wants to complete a triathlon, but can’t swim, to multiple World Championship qualifiers.  He has hosted multiple training camps, including transition training.  He offers one on one sessions for his athletes to get the special attention needed to achieve the success they desire.  He provides personal fitness assessments, in each of the triathlon disciplines, plus FTP testing in his home studio, run sessions and open water training in his backyard (granted it is in Michigan and weather limited!)
