Coaches Corner

Coach Mike Smith

Desire. Determination. Dedication. Discipline.
These are more than just words to me. I have always loved endurance sports and have the drive to compete. Early in my career I reached the professional level in motorcycle and mountain bike racing. Health and life challenges changed my course along they way, and they made me dig deeper to know more about overall fitness. Adding to the skills I already had, I became a student of good running form and studied holistic diet. Eventually I became a triathlete, and I discovered my true joy is sharing my knowledge and experience with others. I continued to build on everything I had learned by obtaining the skills, experience, and certification to become an elite level coach.

Desire. Determination. Dedication. Discipline.
These principles have transformed me into the athlete – and the coach – I am today. I want to help you transform your own athletic journey. I want you to see yourself in 4D.
