Rob Krar

My experience has taught me there is no one size fits all training plan. My goal is to provide highly specialized personal coaching tailored to each individual’s needs. As an athlete who also maintains a full time job, I understand the challenges of training with time constraints and the importance of time management.

My background in triathlon, mountain biking, ski mountaineering and circuit training will also allow me to work with each client to create training strategies that work within real-life time constraints and facilitate a healthy and productive training and racing experience.
