Coach Zeus

Hi, thanks for visiting my website and coaching business.  This has been a life long goal.  Did you ever have a "career week" in elementary school?  What did you want to be when you grew up?  I attended my 3rd grade classroom dressed in a Duke University sweatshirt, a whistle, tube socks, and sneakers.  I wanted to be Coach Kryzewski, aka "Coach K".  I had to settle for Coach Z however.

I first realized my addiction for running and sports during my first track meet in 5th grade during the all city meet.  I remember clearing the high jump bar three inches higher than the second place participant and hearing the crowd cheer so loudly.  I felt like a little rock star!  

I was a three sport athlete; soccer in the Fall, basketball in the Winter, and track in the Spring.  I lettered (made varsity), my freshmen year in the 400m.  I then lettered in soccer at the forward position my sophomore year earning MVP, and finally lettering in basketball my junior year at the point guard position.  I miss the camaraderie, which is why I have carried this passion into my career.


Do I run at UW-Whitewater, or do I attend UW-Madison, a more research based institution?  It was a tough decision, and I chose to attend UW-Madison.  I focused on research in Embodied Cognition through the Psychology department.  I was intrigued on how the mind learns while making movements with our bodies.  Neuromuscular activity is the core of my coaching philosophy; if we don't put our bodies through the motions while staying mentally present, we may not see progression.

I continued my education earning an MS in Counseling at UW-Whitewater.  I knew I would some how circle back to War hawk land.  Both my research and counseling degree have complimented my coaching certification perfectly in creating a well-rounded approach to helping athletes reach their goals. 


I love that I get to say "I enjoy what I do, and I can't wait to get to work."  I feel extremely lucky to have the opportunity to interact with so many athletes on a daily basis.  I am also able to use my counseling degree as I currently work for an Adolescent Day Treatment Program in Sun Prairie.  Both jobs are extremely rewarding.

I have completed 5ks to the Ironman distance.  My favorite running distance is the 10k because it's short enough to race at a high exertion level, yet long enough to make it hurt just that much more.  As for my favorite distance, the 70.3 takes the cake because it gives me enough time to run down my competitors!  It's often fun to tip off at the starting line with my athletes.  I have never ran an ultra-marathon, however.  Is it in the plan?  Absolutely not, but the coaching plan for an athlete could be fun!  This is when I say, "Do as I say, not as I do!"
