Kari has competed in Triathlon since 2005 and embraces the sport as an athlete and NCCP certified Coach.

Her years as a certified Personal Fitness Trainer and Life Coach complement her skills as a Triathlon coach. Kari appreciates the team approach to an individual sport and how that can work for her athletes. Train in groups. Train solo. Compete.

​When athletes have training plans that fit their lifestyles, any event is possible. Kari has competed in a variety of the triathlon distances, including an epic trip to ITU Worlds in China in 2011.  She has been working with coaches Chris and Jill and Triathlete Within for several years now, leading their strength workouts and soaking up their mentorship on the pool deck, track and bike trainers.
