Seth Waltman, aka TaxSlayer, is located in Athens, Georgia and has a solid background in swimming and running. He is a total team player, is passionate about the multisport lifestyle, and committed to TriCoachGeorgia. “Tax” helped many athletes even before his coaching training.
Tax was raised, as a young child, in Madison, Wisconsin where he swam competitively for many years. As he got older, he began running competitively. In high school, Seth ran cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track. During this time, Seth developed his love for running. In 2010, Seth competed in his first sprint triathlon.
Tax was a top 10 overall point getter in the USAT’s NCC Challenge in 2014. He is a three-time ironman finisher (Ironman Chattanooga 2014 and 2016 and Ironman Louisville 2015) and has completed many half ironman races in the Southeast, Midwest, and Mexico. He has qualified for the Age Group Nationals and is a 2015 All World Athlete in 70.3 and 140.6 distances. He is a multiple time podium finisher at the team sponsored Georgia Triathlon Series. He knows how to balance life, work, and training.
In addition to his athletic accomplishments, Tax was the administrator for our youth team, Tri Kids Georgia, and he works closely with Coach Slayer on helping the kids at practice and races.
The Oconee Enterprise named him Athlete of the Week, click here to read about it.
Everyone knows that Tax is smitten with his wife, Becky (aka Tax Dr.), of 22 years and they have two children ages 20 and 17. Both of his kids competed in triathlons on a regular basis when they were younger, and you would find him at most of their events with his loud booming voice.
If you want a coach that walks the walk, knows how to help you lose weight, will be firmly in your corner, and is attentive to the details that will help you succeed, you would be wise to consider TaxSlayer as Your Coach.

In August 2014, I competed in my first triathlon. I enjoyed the competition, but wasn’t satisfied with my results. I’ve known Seth for several years so I asked him if he would mind helping me be more competitive in 2015. We started out slow, as I had had major surgery for Kidney Cancer at Christmas time 2014. The training plans he created for me were easy to follow and were typically given to me two weeks at a time. One of the nicest things was being able to contact Seth if I had any questions or concerns, through text, email, phone, and even in person. I have shown tremendous improvement and it is Seth who I give the credit to – he has pushed me in ways I never thought possible, both mentally and physically, and always been there for me. He not only set goals for me to reach, but he fully expected me to reach and exceed them. There is no doubt in my mind that Seth Waltman would be an outstanding coach to many others if given the chance.
