Coach Kate Johnson
Road, gravel, mountain bike, multi-day, triathlon, off-road triathlon
I coach because helping other people reach their goals not only gives me great joy, but also grows me as a person. I love riding my bike, and I love to see others experience that same love and happiness.
My coaching philosophy is one of health and lifelong learning. I value education and expertise, as well as experience. Each person is unique and individual, and as such my coaching approach is to get to know the athlete as a person; working together, we discover the best ways to develop and grow in the areas that we identify.
I value technology that adds to athletic growth and experience, and I strive to stay on top of the latest research on athletic training.
Coaching is a team activity where both the coach and the athlete have responsibility to communicate and interact with one another. Lastly, but not least, it is about enjoying the process and journey we take together as coach and athlete, no matter how difficult it may be.
Off the bike, I have performed with Richard Carpenter, both as a backup singer and as a clarinetist, and I enjoy performing with the Royal Hawaiian Band as a part-time clarinetist.
