Eric Johnson   ewj tri

Hey, I'm Coach Eric and I work with athletes like you (especially off-road Xterra triathletes) who struggle to find the time to coach themselves. I help you reduce stress, have FUN, and give you the tools to get to that finish line as fast as possible!

I will help you navigate the difficulty of training, but you gotta do the work!

  1. I meet with you and analyze your dreams and goals.
  2. I give you a custom training plan.
  3. I will be there as much (or as little) as you need along the way.


I've been running since I was 13, and racing triathlons since 2006. I've complete the Boston marathon, competed in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, 70.3 World Championships, and the Xterra Off-Road Triathlon World Championships in Maui. I was the 2018 Xterra Regional Champion, and have a marathon personal best of 2:36.

And when I'm not swimming, biking or running I can be found hanging out with my new training partner Niko (a german shepherd mix puppy) or traveling (Greece, Thailand, Portugal and Banff are just a few of my favorite places)!

If you're dying to know more, three things you don't know about me are - I ran 20 miles on a track while I was in Spain because I didn't want to get lost. I have broken both of my collarbones, and I have a doctorate degree in clinical psychology specializing in working with injured athletes (especially concussions).
