Coach Dave

Owner/Head Coach

Lifelong Athlete + Coach

Head Coach/Owner - Triathlon Coaching

Coach Dave is a life-long athlete with a passion for helping others succeed. Growing up, Dave cycled and played various team sports, such as baseball, hockey, and football. While competing and striving to achieve his own goals, he always had a strong work ethic and a natural ability to mentor others who were less experienced. His dedication and hard work has always allowed Dave to succeed on his own, as well as to facilitate improvements in others. 

In 2008, Dave discovered the sport of triathlon, and that passion for helping others was ignited once again. After participating in his first triathlon, Dave knew very little about the sport, but spent years reading and studying everything he could on the subject. After securing his USAT Coaching Certification in 2012, he founded Power2Tri Multisport and has been successfully coaching triathlon with adult athletes ever since.

Coach Dave has prepared many athletes for their first triathlon, longer distances like 70.3 or Ironman, Overall and Age Group (AG) podiums and/or national and world championship qualification.

Coach Gabe

From running to triathlon to helping others in endurance sports

Coach Gabe on Triathlon Bike

Gabe has a lifelong background in running and has been competing in triathlons for over 10 years. He has experienced first-hand, that we aren’t born fast, we become fast and often times a coach can help you achieve levels you couldn’t no your own. Endurance athlete’s need to be designed and cultivated by training cycles that focus on ways that can best enhance your current strengths, and improve personal restrictions.

Gabe has a curiosity in the field of human performance in endurance events and that has driven him to gain his USAT Coaching certification to understand additional aspects of how we as athletes can improve consistently over time. With the knowledge is power mentality he views imparting knowledge to his athletes is a vital component to enhancing their capabilities.

Having a coach who understands the balance athletes are constantly playing to mitigate external factors and competition success will be at the fore thought of his coaching style. The plan design is the easy part, execution, dedication and recovery is up to the athlete.
