As an older athlete, I was interested in finding a coach who understood the fitness and training needs that are unique to my age group. I found that coach in Ellen. She was always open to questions, and the weekly plans were easy to understand and follow, and of course geared to my needs.

Ellen is an absolute amazing coach!!! I have worked with her for several years. Having Ellen coach me has made me a smarter, stronger, faster triathlete. With her guidance,  I even shaved an hour off my 70.3 time (yes an hour…).  Ellen is aware that no two athletes are the same. She treats each of her athletes as individuals, catering to their personal needs & goals. Ellen’s not just a pretty face, she really knows her stuff. As a seasoned triathlete herself, she has the drive, passion & knowledge to get you to the finish line. Being coached by Ellen is a win-win.
