Learning to swim, bike and run was a turning-point in Jeannete's life. With no athletic background, Jeannete started competing in triathlons in her 40’s. A late start in life has not stopped her from being successful and competitive.

 

Jeannete emigrated from Sweden in 2000. She's a mother of three wonderful young men. She became a triathlon enthusiast when first introduced to the sport upon moving to Colorado. Today she has done 45+ sprints and Olympic triathlon races, several 70.3 triathlons, age-group placed in several races and qualified for Nationals. 3x Full IronMan (140.6) and is training for her fourth IMFrankfurt. Moreover, she have done numerous run races, bike events and bike century rides.

 

"Triathlon has changed my life. I’m now a much fitter, healthier and happier person than I’ve ever been. I have been

naturally drawn into the coaching world since I love to help and encourage others pursue fitness, whether it’s into

the triathlon world or personal training. It has become my passion. I think a coach should be a good communicator

and a good listener, and I believe a coach has several responsibilities towards the client: to be committed, to

develop trust, to care for the athlete, and to perform in a professional matter. After all, the athlete trusts that the

coach will help her pursue and achieve her goals."

 

Jeannete's passion for the sport has led her to become an excellent coach. Sharing her experiences and

knowledges she's encouraging many people to pursue an active lifestyle. She has coached both beginners and

experience athletes in finishing their first triathlon to place in their age group.

 

 

Past seasons she was an Active-athlete-Ambassador for Sony, SunRype and 3W races.
