Joanne Eastwood pulls knowledge to her coaching from more than 20 years of competitive cycling, triathlon and adventure racing. Joanne is a USA Triathlon Level 1 Coach, an International Triathlon Coaching Association coach and a certified Personal Trainer. Her greatest enjoyment is working with beginner to intermediate athletes, as all as the joy that comes from working with youth athletes.
“I remember my first triathlon,” says Joanne. “I was 24 years old, living in Massachusetts, working a full day, barely training at all, soon to be married, and partying like I was still in college. A couple of friends dared me to do a triathlon. Haver never run, or even ridden a bike since I had been a kid, but with a good base of swimming, I took the dare. I finished second to last, but knew I could do much better. A year later, I returned to that same triathlon and was the first overall woman. That is what I try to impart to my beginner athletes, the knowledge that they too can do better.”
