Meet the Coaches
Kevin Coady is the head coach of TriForce and the former triathlon coach at the Google Inc. global headquarters in Mountain View, California. He’s also a top age group triathlete, with an Ironman personal best of 8:56 and multiple Kona qualifications.
Kevin has helped dozens of athletes PR and achieve their racing goals, including coaching several athletes to their first Kona (including two top 10 Kona AG finishers) and 70.3 World Championship qualifications. In 2014, Coach Coady had four TriForcers qualify for Kona (with a top 10 AG finisher) and 10 athletes qualify for 70.3 World Champs (most of them first time qualifiers). Kevin welcomes athletes of all abilities who are willing to put in the work to take their performance to the next level.
For the last nine years, Kevin has studied the art and science of triathlon training with a passion and has applied his knowledge to his athletes’ and his own training. By applying common sense and sound principles of training, he has transformed himself from being out of shape and 45 pounds overweight to becoming an 8:56 Ironman athlete and multiple Kona and 70.3 World Championships qualifier. Kevin has improved as both an athlete and a coach every single year and in the process he’s cracked the code for what it takes to consistently race well at the Iron distances.
Andrew is a highly motivated, detail-oriented, obsessive student of the sport of triathlon. When he’s not training, he reads blogs and academic articles, watches swim stroke videos, writes software for TriForce, and nitpicks at the aerodynamics of his bike. With the help of Coach Coady, he has dropped over 5 hours from his best Ironman finishing time and qualified for the 70.3 World Championships. He has been both an Ironman All World Athlete and an USAT All American. In his spare time, he is a software engineer at Google.
