Meet the Coach... “I work with triathletes, duathletes, cyclists and runners of all abilities. My coaching philosophy is to “do the least amount of the most specific training at the appropriate time.” This alleviates the junk miles that can often lead to over-training and over-use injuries. I understand the delicate balance required to develop a satisfying athletic commitment within the day-to-day essential framework of my clients’ busy lives. I feel privileged to have worked with so many dedicated athletes, and truly enjoy helping them reach their individual training and racing goals.” -Coach Karen Buxton
“With Karen’s assistance, I saw immediate results - less time training, better results and more time to enjoy the bike.” -Ron Zell, Ultra-cyclist
“I was over-trained, constantly exhausted and never meeting my goals. With Karen’s coaching ... my training became more focused, more specific and much more enjoyable.” -Laura Hamilton, Triathlete
“Karen did a great job of devising a training plan for my first Ironman. My longest training weeks were 13 to 14 hours, a number that’s a lot easier to fit into my life and schedule...” -John Tulinsky, Triathlete
“As any Ironman participant will tell you ... the training is so much harder than the race. Mentally you need someone who really knows how it works to keep you going when it starts getting hard. ... If you want to run a great race, get a great coach. Karen is awesome. You will perform like you cannot even imagine.” -Christie Lawyer, First Time IM Finisher
