I can’t say enough wonderful things about Heather and her coaching. I chose Heather and Ironedge Coaching because I admire her for her strength, talent and personality. I started training with her for OCR in March of 2020. With races being cancelled, it gave her time to develop my training to get a good running base, increase my running speed and also get my grip stronger and centered around OCR. Within 8-10 months of consistent training, I podiumed twice at the Pro level and twice in Age Group at Savage Races. After a few weeks off, we are now building back my base and speed so that I can continue to reach my goals of getting on that Pro and Elite podium. Heather is always available to chat and text to check-in and see how I am doing and feeling so that training can be adjusted if needed or if I’m ready to push harder. I just love working with Heather!
Working with Heather Gollnick has been an absolute game changer. I came to her with years of experience, and yet I saw immediate results within my first months of training. Her optimistic attitude is contagious and her wisdom from her personal career is priceless. What I value the most from Coach Gollnick, is that she is always my greatest support when it comes to the mental aspect of training. I’ve had breakthroughs mentally that I wouldn’t have believed to have carried over into my physical performances. This is just a glimpse at what it’s like to be coached by Heather Gollnick!
Heather Gollnick- 5-time Iron Man champion, outstanding athlete, fitness guru, and mom. During each session we embark on one of her amazing (and killer!) training regimens. In the course of just a month, I have so much more energy, and I feel great, so confident! Her expertise makes Heather perfect for anyone, not to mention all her enthusiasm and words of encouragement.

I had the pleasure and honor of scheduling 5 time Ironman Champion, Heather Gollnick, to speak on behalf of Las Vegas Cyclery. Heather graciously agreed to speak just a few days before the epic Leadman 125 Triathlon in Las Vegas. I know how hectic it can be, preparing for a race, travel, adjusting to a different time zone, and still being focused on having the best race possible. Heather proceeded with the grace and sparkle of a true Champion. She spoke to a group of over 20 triathletes, and made it a point to make each and every one feel like a long lost friend. Heather has the dynamic and gracious personality that one can only wish for.
What a difference a season makes! After three summers of training myself for Olympic distance triathlons, I decided to take the next step and start training with Heather and the IronEdge team. In one season, I had 3 PRs and have fallen in love with triathlon all over again. Heather has been able to improve all aspects of my race. I would recommend training with Heather for any athlete level, from beginners to elite. In the IronEdge team, I found a group of positive people of all abilities who supported each other like family.
