About
Coach Michelle

Michelle is a competitive Age Group triathlete, former NCAA swimmer, AAU swimmer, and AAU coach, providing swim-bike-run endurance coaching since 2008. Certified with USA Triathlon since 2010, she focuses on adults 30+ at various skill levels, who want to improve endurance and speed in one or more sports. With emphasis on achieving personal goals, she delivers swim technique instruction, bike speed skills, running bio-mechanics and endurance training, mental prep, and race day performance strategies. Services include customized training programs for specific races or a season of racing (delivered online via Training Peaks) or in person one-on-one instruction.

Certified Triathlon coaches design training plans geared toward the athlete’s specific needs in swimming, cycling and running daily via progressive workouts. Coaches cater to the athlete at hand, based on their schedule, age, skill level, goals, fitness level and mental preparation. We teach the inner workings of swimming, cycling and running passed down from USA Triathlon organization’s most esteemed mentors. Your coach will not just train you physically but will also provide information on daily nutrition & mental skills, two vital aspects in mastering the sport of triathlon. Once certified at Level 1, coaches have an opportunity to advance their education within the USA Triathlon coaching family through continuing education seminars and additional certifications like Youth and Junior, Level II, or as high as Level III (elite athlete coach).
