Donna Phelan


A former Olympic trials swimmer, pro triathlete Donna Phelan has raced under the top triathlon coaches in the world, including Paula Newby-Fraser, Dave Scott, Brett Sutton and Siri Lindley during her ITU, 70.3 and Ironman career. She's earned podium results at Ironman and half-distance races, and qualified four times for IM Hawaii as a pro, racing there twice. 


Donna takes the best of what she's learned in her 17-year pro racing career to create real, results-based training programs. Her physiotherapy and personal training background also add a level of care to help manage and ward off setbacks.

Donna's coaching protocol is about quality training. There are no cookie cutter programs; your program is individualized for you.

Whether it's a PR, a spot on the local podium or a place on the start line in Kona, Donna's experience and individualized attention can help you see your goals through.
