I have know Ray for over 10 years, it started when I first took a sprint triathlon class with him at a local YMCA. It was the beginning of endurance races for me. Since then I have progressed from sprint triathlons to olympic length triathlons to recently finishing my first 70.3 mile distance. When I crossed the finish line for the half, I thought thank you Ray, because not only did I feel great, I achieved my goal and was well trained. I had confidence going into the race because Ray believed I could do it, he knew when to push me, how to help me get past obstacles and laughed with me. I know in myheart of hearts that finishing the 70.3 was possible because of Ray’s encouragement and guidance through the years. - Lori

My experience with Ray has been a game changer for both my level of fitness and my ability to perform in races. His approach is gentle but tough and he carefully considers the physical and mental aspects of training. His experience as a world-class triathlete combined with years of working in a corporate environment makes Ray the perfect combination of brains and braun in a Coach. - Aaron

I am almost 65 yrs old. What I love most about Shoshana is she has made me realize just how relevant I still am as an athlete. My head was telling me I was too old to be a triathlete and Shosh quickly changed that. She motivates me to be the best I can be, not what someone 20 yrs younger could be. She is good at this coaching thing. I think it’s because she gears the workouts specifically to my ability to perform and also what she knows I’m capable of doing. - Maggie

Jaime coached me to successfully complete my first full Ironman. He created a tailored training plan taking into an account my personal strengths and weaknesses. His data driven approach with specific metrics and target goals for my workouts worked great for me.  Jaime helped me navigate through the heaviest training period without serious injuries and to find the right balance between pushing hard vs. listening to your body approach. - Serge

I was about 3 weeks post-partum after a c-section. Three week old in hand, still wearing my c-section incision belt and about 185 lbs, I met Ray at the YMCA. I knew as soon as I met him that we would work well together as he guided me safely on my recovery and to my fullest potential as a triathlete. While I had been involved in Triathlon over the past 8 years in and out of having babies, I had never landed on the podium.  I knew I could get there, but I was not sure how. After working with Ray throughout the winter, I had the best season ever. I medaled at every race and qualified for Nationals in both the sprint and Olympic distance events - injury free! I am looking forward to moving up to the next level under the guidance of Ray! - Monica

Ray, I wanted to say thanks for all the help and guidance.  The difference between this race ( Westchester Tri ) and previous races was big- time aside (which is better) is how I felt finishing - I was looking at my run splits - and seeing how my pace continued to improve - with some real fuel left in the tank for a push in last mile and a huge push for last 1/4 - my wife and mom (who have come to my previous tris as well) said I just seemed happier and more energetic through the whole race - so thank you - they thank you. - John
