"My goal is to see athletes overcome obstacles to achieve their goals. The modern day athlete needs to balance many commitments from outside the athletic sphere, including work & family. In addition to this, the landscape for the training athlete is littered with a multitude of options & opinions. A good coach uses experience to navigate the best path to success" - Liza Rachetto
