“Working with a coach has been a great experience. From planning detailed workouts with a purpose, to support on the most difficult of days, I am so thankful for the success I have achieved with Coach Wicked. From rower to cyclist to Ironman competitor – earning a spot to compete in Nice, France! I have a lot of work left to do, as many trainings days lie ahead. Excited to continue this next year of hard work and mental discipline with Coach Wicked and have a fantastic race at the world championships. The best has yet to come!”

“I learned to swim in my 50’s..tried a few triathlons..meh..I had tried and was unable to finish an Ironman..I was very down..then a friend recommended TriCoachGA..I joined under Coach @Courtney Connolly …I cannot say enough about how wonderful she was as a coach! She encouraged, slightly pushed in a good way, was there to listen to me whine, and was, and is, the BEST! I would have never completed my Ironman without her steady hand! Forever grateful!”

“Coach Wicked is the best! I’ve been working with her for just over a year now and can’t believe the impact it’s had. In just a few months I set PRs across the board and since then continue to amaze myself accomplishing things I honestly would have never dreamed possible. She creatively works with my demanding work and travel schedules and easily adjusts on the fly as needed. Get a coach, put in the work, do your job!”

“A HUGE THANK YOU to my coach Courtney Connolly for taking me on as an athlete almost 2 years ago and helping me train to finish my first 70.3 IRONMAN! So many goals accomplished with you.. Team USA, Worlds, 70.3…! I have made so much progress and can’t believe how far I’ve come with your help. Thank you for hearing me complain through many of the workouts that I have done, but still continuing to trust the process!! My family thinks I’m sick in the head for wanting to do another 70.3 LOL, so I am thankful that you understand and help me accomplish my goals!! BEST. COACH. EVER.”
