About CK Tri

CK Tri was established to promote science-based, personalized coaching in triathlon training. As well as training in individual disciplines of swimming, cycling, running, strength and conditioning. We strive to understand our athletes and help them meet or exceed their athletic goals.  Our training programs are individually tailored to each client and are continually adjusted based on training performance data and athlete feedback.  

We understand the need for women-specific coaching that accounts for hormone fluctuations which affect training, racing and recovery cycles. We offer uniquely individualized approach that works in sync with women’s bodies to optimize physiological responses and consequently performance. 

In addition to the training noted above, we also offer sports nutritionist services, stand-alone training plans, video analysis, small group clinics, Chattanooga IRONMAN course previews, in-person training, and camps.

We understand your dedication to your athletic training and promise to provide the same level of dedication in our services.

We are proud to be based in Chattanooga, TN, home to three annual triathlons: IRONMAN 70.3, Chattanooga Waterfront, and IRONMAN 140.6.

Anything is possible BUT it requires hard work, dedication, knowledge, and a whole lot of support.
