Welcome!

The Anxious Triathlete is an online-based triathlon coaching resource focused on helping people enter the sport of triathlon. Why triathlon? Because I’ve seen the impact that triathlon, or heck, just fitness in general, can have on a person’s life. Physical changes are great, but the mental ones are so much bigger. The AT started as a blog dedicated to helping people overcome the mental anxiety of trying something new. That new thing just happened to be triathlon- and I think it’s a great vehicle for helping people get over whatever mental blocks are holding them back in life.

What makes us different

The Anxious Triathlete is focused solely on helping first timers and beginners feel comfortable in the sport of triathlon. If you’re thinking about tackling your first race but you don’t know where to start, I got you. If you want to find more time to enjoy training by simplifying other areas of your life, I got you. If you want to get over your own sh*t that’s holding you back, if you want to get unstuck in life, if you want to silence those voices in your head that say you can’t do this, oh boy do I got you. Let’s do this.

What we’re not

What you won’t get here? Extensive gear reviews. Long-distance training plans. Commentary on triathlon political issues. Tons of advice on how to swim/bike/run better or faster. If you’re a seasoned triathlete looking to improve your performance, there are hundreds of amazing triathlon coaches out there ready to build a better you. But it’s not what I love to do.

“With Annie’s help I went from afraid to ride a bike to olympic distance tri finisher, all in 3 months! From day 1, Annie answered ALL of my questions.  She reviewed my training plan, made adjustments, and explained WHY she was making adjustments which I really appreciated.  She offered tons of recommendations from HR monitor to race-day gear to fuel + fueling plan.  I basically did everything she said and showed up at the starting line super confident. If you’re a newbie triathlete, Annie’s your gal for honest, solid advice.”
