Meet the Trainers


Kris Simpson is a USA Triathlon Level I Certified Coach and NIFS trainer. Kris has competed in several triathlons including Sprint and Olympic distances.

"This program has been so much fun getting ladies ready for the challenge of a triathlon. On Race Day the camaraderie formed and the success each lady has makes me so proud of all the work that has been done. As with any program, you have those who doubt they can even get to the starting line. But as they grow and learn, you can see their confidence increase, and the race-finish smiles are a joy to watch! Challenge accepted Challenge meet! It's not hard, it's CHALLENGING!"
