Being a competitive athlete since the age of 7 in the sports of football & baseball,  he realized at an early age the importance of a healty lifestye. Troy took up weight training and swimming after a back injury ended his chances of playing football in college. In 1986, while completing his dual major in Recreation/Fitness Management and Health & PE,  Troy had the opportunity to spend a year in Australia, where his main mode of transport was a bike thus starting his passion for cycling.  But it’s what happened in summer of 1995 that set wheels in motion. He participated in the Colonial Beach Triathlon  and was hooked from the exit of the swim. Shortly after that event he was told there was no way he could ever complete the 4.4 mile Chesapeake Bay Swim, because he was "not a swimmer". Well, it was game on from there! Not only did he do it but he did it twice. He brings that same dedication and passion to the athletes he coaches.

 

As an executive & trainer for the YMCA for over  24 years Troy has logged countless hours training adults in Membership Engagement, Principals of Health and Fitness, Strength & Conditioning, Lifeguard and Lifeguard Instructor. He is also certified in CPR, First Aid AED & Oxygen administration.

 

Troy has inspired numerous athletes to pursue completing their first triathlon and several on to complete the infamous 140.6. His contagious positive energy and passion for life has made him an asset to the sport.
