Tatjana Ivanova   Coach Tatjana

Tatjana has coached endurance athletes for over 10 years. All her athletes - from first time marathoners to Ironman 70.3 World Championship qualifiers - achieved and over-achieved their personal goals and there was not a single DNF among them.

Tatjana has two mantras for training and racing: "Joy in the effort" (always!) and "Pain is temporary, glory is forever" (sometimes..)


A former national level track cyclist and 16xIronman (2xKona) finisher, Tatjana lives an active endurance lifestyle as a coach and plant-based athlete. She is a certified Ironman coach (WTC), B-Level Elite long distance triathlon coach (Germany) and Level 2 Training Peaks coach. She holds an MBA and a Master of Sports Technology degrees, worked 5 years at the International Olympic Committee and speaks English, German, Russian and French fluently. She is based in Switzerland but trains athletes around the world. Her training and her training plans are tailored to each athlete┬┤s needs, objectives and time schedules, based on her deep sports knowledge and experience - but they are also innovative and fun. So expect things like "plank challenge" or "Sunday surprise" :-)
You can also expect to receive a full service with your training plan: strength & conditioning programs, swim drills, nutrition guidance, mental toughness development, hydration planning for hot races, stretching, cycling mastery clinics, and much more.

Examples of Athletes┬┤ achievements:

  • From "0" to a marathon finisher in 6 months
  • Ironman 70.3 World Championships qualifications
  • First time Ironman sub-12 in just 5 months
  • From 15+ to deep sub-12 Ironman finish in 2 years
  • "weight loss", "best form ever", "happier than ever" etc - and not a single DNF!

Reach out to Tatjana - she will be happy to answer all your questions!
Thank you in advance.
