The Endurance Drive Coaches

 

JIM ANDERSON

I am all about a “person first, athlete second” coaching philosophy. I help my athletes keep perspective and healthy, clarify their goals and use athletics to become a more authentic version of themselves. Thoughtful, adaptive and appropriate coaching to meet each individual where they are now and where they want to go in the future.

My endurance and racing background includes all triathlon distances, bike, run and adventure racing.

I volunteer with the Dartmouth Triathlon Club and run a Hanover, NH based training squad for long distance triathlon & endurance athletes.

I love racing triathlons for one reason: there is a direct correlation between the hard work put into training and the results on race day. I enjoy helping my athletes every season reach their best and continue that process for many years to come. 

As a coach I believe in building confidence through consistent work, education and a process driven enjoyment of the sport. I strive to find creative and individualized training solutions that allow all my athletes to get the most out of all their endurance endeavors.

In the last few years, I’ve progressed from runner to runner-who-does-triathlons to fully-fledged triathlete to Kona Qualifier to coach.  I’m excited to share what I love most about triathlon training with anyone who’s willing to try it out: spending the day outside, with friends, at endurance pace.

I race and train for triathlons of all distances, and in my spare time, I’m pursuing a PhD in political science (although I tell my fellow political scientists that in my spare time, I’m a triathlete). I take my training, my athletes, and my athletes’ training seriously, but I don’t take myself too seriously.
