|I would never have completed a triathlon, let alone think about doing one if it weren’t for Tri-Life. I always thought, “Why would anyone want to put themselves through that?” I changed my mind after a couple of spin class sessions with Tri-Life. During those classes, I saw how much camaraderie everyone had. Everyone talked about triathlons, running, biking, swimming and how much fun they had. I decided I wanted to try one too. Only problem was that I didn’t know how to swim, not one stroke. I tried swim lessons outside of Tri-Life for more than a year and could barely go one length while only slightly drowning. Wasn’t pretty. I finally asked Angie if she could teach me. She said yes, and after a lot of work, I was able to do my first open water swim triathlon in 13 months. I’m still learning and having fun.|
I hope you already know this, but I just wanted to let you know that the past training camp was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Not only did I get to know all of the athletes substantially better, but I truly discovered that you are an amazing person with extreme dedication to triathlon and benefiting us as athletes. I would also like to add that Trevor was a huge asset, I could not think of a more perfect person for the camp. Not only was he very helpful, but he is extremely nice and was a great addition to the general atmosphere. Thank you so much for dedicating so much of your time to us and ensuring that we had an extraordinary time. I am already missing everyone and looking forward to next years camp!

Angie the work you do is important and makes a difference to a lot of people including me. It means a lot to make a difference and you do – so take that into your next training session knowing that Angie the athlete sets a great example for the people training under the guidance of Angie the coach.
I got my program and it looks really great! You worked hard on it and you even put in where I need to get a baby sitter! I also love that you have put it all one schedule and have given me some options if I am tired!
|Angie and team Trilife has been an amazing gift to me. It feels wonderful to say, with honesty, that I am a triathlete. The first few years I was faking that I was a triathlete, but now with Angie's guidance, support and excellent coaching skills, I am a triathlete.

Angie, it should be me thanking you for bringing such a great bunch of people up from your area! I paused a couple of times down at the lake on Saturday morning, watching you work with your athletes on transition and rules and I was very impressed. If only all coaches could take the time to work these little details out with their athletes it would all go so much easier for them. Your dedication and commitment shows in each and every one of them!

Your support throughout the journey to GWN was both professional and personal. My friends and I discussed what it would be like to be a triathlon coach. We all agreed that as a coach you have to be prepared for whatever comes at you from your athletes. We also agreed that it takes a special person, who is capable of listening, responding and problem solving when dealing with an athlete who was nervous about her first half Ironman! You were that person for me. For that I will always be grateful.

Thank you for all of your coaching and support. I truly attribute my day (which I was so pleased with) to all of your planning and especially the race day preparation/execution plans. I think lots of athletes would have better days if you were their coach! I am so happy with the day!
