Dennis was voted the Mountain West’s top Spin Instructor by Competitor Magazine in 2012. He has a Bachelors Degree in Physical Education and a Minor in Coaching from the State University of New York College at Cortland. Dennis has been working in the Fitness Industry since 1992 and has helped numerous clients and athletes of all abilities reach their fitness and racing goals. Dennis has completed 8 ironman distance triathlons as well as ultra distance mountain bike events, marathons and shorter events like sprint triathlons and 5k’s.
Dennis has coached first timers to elite level endurance athletes. He is most proud of the fact that all but one ironman distance athlete he has coached has reached the finish line and many have set personal records.
Dennis also has over 25 years experience coaching youth sports. He has coached youth baseball, soccer, basketball, hockey and youth triathlon. Dennis’ number one goal when coaching kids is to avoid lines at all costs, “kids should be moving and get as many “touches” as possible in every practice.”
