MEET OUR AWESOME SWIM COACHES...

 

 

Andrew Turner - Tri Coach, Swim Coach

Hometown: Scandia, MN, now living in Saint Paul.

Some of my favorites: Anything outside, count me in. Besides swimming, biking, and running, I love to go backpacking in Colorado and Minnesota, hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, and recently started kayaking. I started to hit the trail running and biking this year, nice change of pace every once and awhile. I love to set difficult goals and push the limits to see if I can achieve them.

Fitness Background: Growing up, I was involved in every sport you could think of. Eventually I found swimming and cross country and fell in love. My cousin introduced me to long distance cycling, and since then it is hard to get me off a bike. My main focus is long distance triathlons, but in the last few years I have gotten into road bike racing and cyclocross racing.

20+ Triathlons from sprints to Ironman with many age group wins, one amateur overall win, and multiple top ten overall finishes.

2010 Ironman World Championship; PR 9:52

Competitive in multiple road bike and cyclocross races yearly.

Currently working on my USA Triathlon coaching and USA Cycling certifications.

2 years of coaching experience with triathletes.

Brianna Chu - Swim Coach

Hometown:  Racine,  WI

Some of my favorites:  Jumping in a lake or fountain after a hot run, curling up in bed when your body is hurting after a hard workout, beating up on training partners during practice, dogs.

Fitness Background:  My primary sport was swimming for 12 years, culminating in swimming backstroke and sprint freestyle at the University of Minnesota.  I have always struggled with asthma, and now I am healthier doing sports that keep me in the fresh air.

I love to cross-country ski in the winter and the variety in triathlon training keeps things fun.  Some notable race experiences I've had include competing in the draft-legal sprint at the USAT Collegiate Nationals and the American Birkebeiner ski race.  I have had some awesome coaches and teammates throughout the years who have influenced my approach to training and competition.  I think race-day confidence comes from being familiar with the pain from training and working on "the little things" on a day-to-day basis.
