I was the kid in school who walked the mile; the girl who never dared to call herself an athlete even though I was a fish in the water; The woman who laughed when my mom asked me to do a triathlon with her. For anyone who has ever doubted their ability, who doesn't know their own strength, who has been told they can't do something: I became a coach for you. Finish lines change lives. I'm on a mission to help others do things they once thought impossible. The only limits we have are self-imposed.
I'm Avery Pontell-Schaefer, known by friends and family as IronAve. I'm an Ironman and marathoner. I've completed 2 Ironmans, 3 Half Ironmans, 4 Marathons, 14 Half Marathons and countless other races. I'm a Level 1 USA Triathlon Coach, Level 1 RRCA Running Coach, Tier 3 Personal Trainer at Equinox Sports Club, and a Shaklee Health Coach. I partner closely with Dr. Jordan Metzl, Sports Medicine Physician from HSS (Hospital for Special Surgery), and team with him to promote the importance of strength training as a means of injury prevention. I've been featured in Shape Magazine and Runner's World and have appeared on The Today Show. I am here because it's time to do your impossible.
