AMBITION IS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS SUCCESS
MAD ENDURANCE COACHING
In 2013 I was asked by an athlete to help write them a program to reach their goal. From that day on I fell in love with coaching and have been studying exercise physiology ever since. In the fall of 2019 I accepted the position as assistant coach to the Triathlon Canada Olympic Program. For Tokyo Olympics and beyond. Also this year I was recognized by Xterra as an off road certified coach.
I've found my way to the top of sport through hard calculated and scientific work. That same process that rocked me to the top of podiums is the undertaking I implement to all my athletes. My coaching style is athlete driven and tailored around being collaborative & results focused.

We had the pleasure to work with Karsten since November 2018 on stroke correction. He is such a knowledgable, committed and humble coach. He provides feedback in a thoughtful and comprehensible manner and he has been able to correct bad swimming habits I wasn’t even aware of. He comes to every coaching session prepared with specific goals to work on and he continues to build on his teachings and switch it up as needed. He is such a professional, thoughtful & flexible coach. I would highly recommend Karsten as a coach! You would not be disappointed!!
As a 20yr XTERRA off-road triathlete who has competed in numerous triathlons, I appreciate how Karsten knows how to utilize both road & off-road training from his extensive road & off-road racing background. He has also proven to be very wise about keeping me from burning out, staying injury free and making sure I'm fully healed up at the end of a season to achieve next years goals. While many pros are experts at what they do, ultimately I chose to work with Karsten because of his expertise and his character. He is very relatable, humble, passionate, integral, responsive and positive to work with

Karsten is an incredible teacher and swim coach. Within a few sessions he provided me with the right tools and drills to noticeably correct and improve my swim stroke. I am very impressed with his passion and first hand knowledge of training for and competing in endurance events. I am looking forward working with Karsten to further improve all aspects of triathlon & coaching me to become a better athlete.
