About Nick Larsen, Triathlon Coach

My passion in life is to help others become physically fit and obtain a more knowledgeable sense of personal well-being; to achieve a sound mind/body combination; and ultimately grant them a happier and more influential life.

As a runner, triathlete, yoga instructor, and coach my concept is simple: focus on helping individuals improve on our primal instinct to run, train, and compete.

My greatest pleasure about leading athletes is seeing how they progress to achieve personal fitness goals.

My experiences as a member and leader of numerous run clubs, several with the Chicago Area Runner’s Association, have taught me to be a better leader and person by living up to my word and maintaining life balance.  Consistently, I have been able to encourage others to push themselves to improve by becoming a better runner without the threat of injury.

Maintaining a connection with fellow athletes is important to me.  Over the years, I have taken numerous classes, trainings, and certifications and I am grateful to have the opportunity to expand my knowledge of fitness and health, most notably injury prevention and cardiovascular development.

Whether you are planning on competing in a triathlon in the coming months, or simply want to take a step towards a healthier and happier life, I am excited to have the opportunity to be a part of your journey.
