Coach Nadja joined the fitness industry in 2006 after having been an engineer, recruiter and small business owner. She quickly went from being a spinning instructor to full time USAT L1 certified triathlon coach and is passionately training and motivating people all over the world, literally. Being a German native and having lived in the US and South Africa most recently has allowed her to gain international experience. She has trained with pros and has raced in a vast variety of conditions. The experience in South Africa has really helped develop her biking capabilities by having increased opportunities of participating in road races throughout the season. Power based training and the love for data analysis have her dialed into smarter training sessions and making you a stronger cyclist and triathlete over all.
