    For cold training practitioners, Alaska is a wild frontier that offers training unlike anywhere in the world. From river training to ice covered waterfalls in winter and glacier swimming access in summer; from frozen lakes to snowy hikes in shorts, the beauty and expansive level of training opportunities are unmatched worldwide. Winter training offers a great opportunity to see the northern lights, while summer training allows the opportunity to see abundant wildlife.

Further he has trained many thousands of WHM participants. He has led the majority of his trainings in nature throughout the Pacific Northwest, Colorado, and recently in Alaska.
