As an athlete, I’m an elite amateur triathlete and pro mountain bike racer. I have raced everything in multisport from Ironman to XTERRA to Olympic distance. I've been blessed to have had a great sport career so far: I've stood on the podium in Kona, have been to the Best of the US Championship, and have been a member of both Team USA and the Air Force Triathlon Team. My first triathlon was in 1992, and I've completed over 100 multisport events and won 10. I've been coaching since 2002.
However, in May 2007, while in the lead pack in a national mountain bike points series race, I took a spill, severely breaking my leg. When I rolled to a stop with my knee pointing north and my toes pointing south. Even in my limited military medical training I knew this is bad. Many complication and infections later, my racing days are over but this was the catalyst that allowed Grasky Endurance Coaching was born!
As a coach, I take more joy in seeing my athletes meet their goals than my own. I am a USAT Level II certified coach, and coach athletes privately through written training plans and one-on-one work with technique and form. My athletes have gone on to World, National, and State Championships in duathlon, triathlon, Ironman, XTERRA, and mountain biking. I'm also the head coach of both the University of Arizona TriCats, dedicated to furthering the sport at the collegiate level, and of RACE Tucson, our shop team. My coaching and professional team includes my wife Jill Grasky, a former pro cyclist, personal trainer, and real estate agent; Coach Bill Daniell, an Exercise Scientist who coaches at the intermediate and advanced level; Coach Nathan Dressel who focuses on beginner and intermediate triathletes; Coach Gail Leveque, top level triathlete who works mostly with beginner and intermediate female athletes, Coach Brandon Nichols, top triathlete and certified sports dietitian, Coach Scott Bennefield, who works mostly with beginners, and Coach Ken Montaney, who specializes in cycling.
I built GEC to provide a team of experts to help athletes reach their goals
efficiently, and in style. We provide almost anything you will need to reach your goals. Where we don’t provide, we help you to find the right people (chiropractic, medical, massage, etc). My coaches are proven athletes and expert coaches. In addition to being certified by USAT, each coach goes through a curriculum and testing process that I oversee, so each meets the requisite knowledge and skill level to be a GEC coach. I have screened the coaches personally so that I can comfortably say that you are getting a top-level coach with anyone at GEC.
Our training programs are efficient, our coaching is personal, our camps are challenging, and our attitude is about having fun and training right. Professional Coaching, Personalized Training Camps; Good Times!
