Hi Catherine,

Welcome to the site! I am USA Triathlon Certified Coach, an ISSA Certified Fitness Trainer, a Kona Ironman World Championship Triathlete, and own/operate In Training LLC, Utah's first fulltime triathlon coaching company. I have been coaching for 9 years now, have coached over 600 athletes, and have been competing myself for about 12 years. I am also a contributing writer for Triathlete Magazine from time to time. Along with coaching locally, I also offer online coaching so if you're ever interested in learning more about my online coaching services, please feel free to ask!

Happy Training,

Dave

PS - I am having a coaching sale right now for my online athletes for as little as $225 for a 3-month complete package, or $400 for a 6 month complete package, with absolutely no start up fees. A rock'n deal for sure! Oh, I also offer In Training Gift Certificates for the holiday season!
