Coaching Philosophy Adam Elliot

I Love XC Skiing! Half of the highest recorded VO2MAX scores are from cross country skiers; competing in this sport is very physically demanding. A wide variety of training opportunities can be utilized including high elevation mountain Running, Skiing on Glaciers in the middle of summer, Cycling, Strength and of course Roller Skiing.

It is my privilege to providing exposure to a variety of training adventures and experiences which raise athlete comfort zone and personal limitations while also providing athletes with the tools to become capable active successful people.

My goal for the Telemark Racers is to deliver good experiences in a supportive encouraging and progressively structured training environment so members may achieve their goals of performance excellence. My Job’s privilege is to support others on their Journey to Performance Excellence with my infectious love of my sport, passionate leadership, technical gifts and work ethic.
