My Story

Gotta Tri It was born out of the excitement that followed the week after seeing two athletes I coached cross the finish line with flying colors at their first triathlon. I could not have been more proud to see them finish and see them finish this powerful. This was followed by a strong desire to help more people achieve their fitness goals. Gotta Tri It is dedicated to providing every client extremely personalized service with a hands on approach coming from personal experience, education and training.


Gotta Tri It is a multisport/triathlon coaching business. I offer online and hands-on coaching in all three disciplines of swimming, biking and running by providing a training plan with daily workouts that athletes can follow. Those athletes can be triathletes, needing workouts for each discipline or single-sport athletes focusing just on cycling or running.


Gotta Tri It is based in Charlotte, NC, but my athletes are international, national and local due to training plans being made available online.

I assess your base fitness and formulate a training plan based on your goals and current fitness level, which is carefully reviewed at the start of the coaching program to ensure it is realistic and achievable. I challenge you one step at a time while also focusing on keeping you injury free. The training plan is built on the principle of periodization focusing on the quality of a workout rather than the quantity.


When “life happens”, I adjust the plan to allow for conflicts of every day life. I believe in personal interactions and feedback to ensure that the training is going in the right direction and you can reach your athletic goal. At no time will you feel like you are alone, from the first contact through race day! Gotta Tri It will never be more than an email or phone call away!

Don’t Just Take My Word For It

  • I’d always wanted to compete in a triathlon, but was intimidated by the swim portion of the event. Working with Nadja gave me the confidence I needed to take the plunge! She put together a personalized training plan that taught me how to train smarter; helping me capitalize on my strengths and improve upon my weaker areas, all the while keeping me injury-free. I found the training to be realistic and flexible enough that I could easily fit it into my daily routine. As a coach, Nadja was committed to helping me establish and attain my personal fitness goals, answered all of my training and equipment questions, and gave me many helpful hints for my first competitive sprint tri. By the time the race rolled around, I felt both physically and mentally prepared. Competing in my first triathlon was an amazing experience! When I crossed the finish line I knew that I was hooked! I credit Nadja for helping to make my first experience with the sport such a positive one…it definitely won’t be the last!

  • Over our 10 months working together you definitely helped me improve on my 3 disciplines! I took 10 minutes off my best swim, nearly an hour off my best bike and approx 1hr30 overall on my PB. I also had done an awful lot more core work than I would have ever done. You definitely improved me all round! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your professionalism, coaching & help and my wife sends her thanks and gratitude for all you did for me. We found you a truly wonderful & amazing lady!

  • Coach Nadja is a delight to work with. She was available when needed and her constant positive attitude kept me going even when I had lost my motivation. I started my first triathlon season with a goal to complete an IM 70.3 in a certain time with no idea how to train to achieve the goal. By the end of the season I had completed a second 70.3 with a season PR, dropping almost an hour off my previous time. After a short consultation coach Nadja had me underway with a customized training schedule to strengthen my weaknesses. Within a couple months my weaknesses were no longer weaknesses and training transitioned to focus on finding more speed to meet my first 70.3 goal time. Even though the weather was not ideal (brutally hot and humid) I was within minutes of reaching goal time. Coach Nadja was supportive and focused on my recovery while I decided if I was going to race another 70.3. Once I committed to another race we were back on track working on my weakness. As I neared the next race my training was disrupted by work trips and disgustingly warm humid weather that crushed my motivation. Coach Nadja was there with her positive support. I showed up to my final 70.3 race of the year confident, focused, energized, and ready to show my cards. I was able to crush my goal by 45 minutes; finishing in the top 20% overall!! I wouldn’t have been able to have such a successful season without the coaching, dedication, additional support, and positive attitude coach Nadja offered me. Throughout the season I decreased my swim by 10 seconds per 100y, increased bike power by 30 watts, and reduced run pace by 1 minute per mile. Coach Nadja has been the best coach I’ve had!
