"Kim is a dedicated Coach with a true passion for teaching Multisport. She met me where I was when I began training and takes a valued interest in my progress. She is always checking in with me to see how workouts are going, how I am feeling about them, stressors in general as that too affects performance. Kim takes a vested interest in her athletes."
Ben - Youth Elite USA
"I like a lot of sports. I appreciate that Coach Kim helps me work towards my goals while letting me still be a teenager. She incorporates my other sports seasons throughout the year into my training phases to help me prevent burnout or injury. Coach Kim lets triathlon work in a way that feels best for me and my goals."
