Vanessa Tilson   Forward Endurance Coaching

Forward Endurance Coaching: Real coaching, for real people.
Individualized training plans created with evidence based workouts.
Improving your balance between training and personal lifestyle.
Training out of the beautiful Okanagan Valley, we can help you achieve your goals.


I have over 10 years experience training and racing triathlons, and I love helping people just like you achieve their goals while balancing a busy lifestyle.

As an athlete, I have competed in numerous triathlons of all distances; including full distance Ironman triathlons, and am a Ironman 70.3 World Championship qualifier. My background as a competitive swimmer and swim coach allows me to assist my athletes to become more efficient, confident and technically competent swimmers.

Work? Life? Training? How do you fit it all in? Maximizing training and racing while minimizing life stress is my specialty. Let’s face it - life is busy - so are you, you need a coach that understands what life throws at you.

In addition to being a full time, Registered Nurse with specialty education in Emergency Care, I am also a full time coach. My speciality is helping you to balance life’s busy schedule to help you get the most out of your body on race day.

Triathlon Coach certified by the National Coaching Certificate Program (Canada).
