About Otterhaus Coaching
We offer personalized coaching services for cyclists, runners and multisport athletes of all ability levels who love endurance sports and have the desire to improve and work towards meeting their full potential.
We focus on the complete athlete in our programs. Frequent coach/athlete communication, striking a healthy balance between an athlete’s individual work/life situation and sport, and tailoring approaches based on individual experience and ability level are cornerstones to our approach.
While we leverage the latest training science in helping to build and monitor fitness, we also work to foster better athlete self-awareness, develop confidence, physical and mental skills, and facilitate all aspects of preparation. We recognize there is much more to the "art of coaching" then just the "science of training".
Otterhaus is passionate about YOUR success! We have successfully worked with all experience and ability levels. Whether you are just starting off, have reached a performance “plateau”, or are looking for new ideas and refinements to continue to grow and develop, Coach George Ganoung, Coach Alex Driscoll and Coach Averi Firari are ready to share their experience and perspective to help you meet your goals.
The Otterhaus Name
Coach George Ganoung raced several times in Europe in the early to mid 2000’s via programs established through US Armed Forces Sports. Both the team’s manager and director lived in the municipality of Otterbach-Otterberg in Germany (look it up, its real!), and the team often based itself in the same region. These trips were a big part of George’s development and adventure as a cyclist. And, otters, and their active, athletic and playful behavior, reflect the positive “complete athlete” vibe we are about. Combine these factors, and the name Otterhaus Coaching was born.
