Coach’s Resume

Coach Mark Kotarski484-995-3915 mark@ketfitness.com

 

I started my career in endurance events during the early years of triathlon(1983) when you leaned your bike against a fence (there were no bike racks). At that time, I decided to study exercise physiology and learn methods to assist patients and the community to use exercise and nutrition to improve their health. Now I assist people in completing their endurance goals. Whether it be a 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon, triathlon, ironman or cycling event I can help with weekly and monthly plans, heart rate levels, perceived exertion, anaerobic threshold or power meter training, and nutritional advice. I have been there, and I understand the science behind it.Since 2008 the results have been the following: Completed Personal Records, Podium Finishes, National Championship Qualifications, and Boston/London Marathon Qualifiers. In addition, training European athletes and Tri Camps in Lake Placid, NY and Ocean City, NJ.I look forward to working with you!Mark
