Craig Cecil   PKPerformers

Coaching Philosophy: Athlete Centric. Athlete centric keeps the focus on creating customized plans based on the athlete’s goals, schedule, available time to train and abilities. His typical athlete most often has a family and a busy career.
" I believe that goals can be reached with the proper coaching while maintaining balance with family and job."
Significant experience working with athletes coming back from injury and surgery.


Background: I am a full time coach residing in the South East. I have been coaching for 15 years and racing multisport over 18 years. I am married with four children, now grown, and I understand being "time constrained."
I have coached over 20 first time Ironman athletes, many podium finishers, including Worlds and many National and World Championship Qualifiers. The core of my athletes are beginners or age groupers who are seeking PR's and arriving at the finish line feeling strong and healthy. While primarily coaching in the SE, I have coached athletes as far as the UK and Canada and to races as far ranging as Roth and Subic Bay and from Lake Placid to Florida.

Personal Accomplishments:
Multiple times All American including AG National Champion in both Triathlon and Duathlon. Past USAT SE #1 RRCA SE 5k and 10k Champion. Hawaii IM finisher 2002.
I have been on the podium at all distances up through the half ironman distance and finished the Hawaii Ironman in a respectable 12:30.

Each week in Birmingham Alabama you can find me leading a Tuesday morning Run: Speed and Form workout for the local tri club. Feel free to drop in!
