Christopher Bagg   Chris Bagg Coaching Group

The triathletes, cyclists, runners, swimmers, rowers, and skiers at CBCG are all bound by the same goal: to become faster, happier, healthier people. It's an ethos shared by all the coaches at CBCG, and nicely wrapped up in our motto: Go Fast, Have Fun, Be Nice. We think that keeping these three principles in sight at all time lead to strong performances and happier lives.


Chris has been involved in education at almost every moment of his adult life, going back to his days as a environmental education teacher on the coast of Maine in the early 2000's. He has taught high school English, coached soccer teams, and has run his own coaching business, now CBCG, since 2011. He has raced as a professional triathlete since 2006, posting strong results around the world, capping those off with a 8:35 at the 2015 Challenge Roth. He serves as the director of the U.S. Masters Swim group at Nike World Headquarters and as Head Coach for CBCG.

In terms of coaching, CBCG athletes excel at all distances and levels: sprint to Ultraman, beginner to professional. We are totally committed to building training programs that begin with the athlete's needs, talents, and schedule constraints. We listen more than we talk, and focus on working with an athlete, rather than just telling them what to do. It's this approach, we believe, that makes our athletes masterful, confident, and strong.
