Coach Michelle Vesterby Bio
I’ve raced professionally since 2012 with three long distance wins and three top 10 finishes in Hawaii. In 2020 I started my own coaching company, because I got so much energy in return from helping and motivating other people with the core value “Keep Smiling!” My plans are mainly about balance and being specific in the training, because I know you don’t have 30 hours a week to train. They are planned to get the most out of your training, your time and give you the best possible day at your Challenge Family race. Keep Smiling is my motto – because life is too short not to do what you LOVE!
