"As a teacher, it is my mission to cultivate lifelong learners and grow children who have a passion and zest for learning. As adults, we often forget this joyful learning. We forget that we have the capacity to grow! Martha Grinnell is also a teacher and an encourager. She is knowledgeable, passionate and committed to her sport and to her athletes. Martha teaches and leads by example. Her training plans are researched based, detailed and motivational. Best of all, Martha knows her athletes and each plan is individualized. Her ability to understand what makes each athlete tick is uncanny! She takes the time to understand the physical, psychological and personal needs of each athlete. Martha has motivated me to grow as an athlete and as a person. She has helped me develop confidence in my swimming, biking and running. Not only has my confidence grown, my progress can be measured in improved racing performance! I'm a better athlete and person thanks to Martha."
