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, 3 Marathons, 12 Half Marathons and countless other races. I appeared as a fitness model in Runner's World, demonstrating Dr. Jordan Metzl's IronStrength® workout and am an IronStrength® Ambassador. I am a Level 1 RRCA Running Coach, Level 1 USA Triathlon Coach, Shaklee Health Coach. I qualified for the 2018 USAT National Championships and will be training to compete as a serious age-group contender for spot on the podium. I am here because it's time to do your impossible.
