After my 2014 season of racing I retired from 'serious' racing. I have transitioned my efforts into coaching triathletes. I will continue to stay active and try to inspire adults and ... morekids alike to chase their athletic goals. Amy was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in December 2014. My primary focus will be her treatment and recovery. Please continue to check our site for coaching updates as well as updates on Amy's progress.

My last few seasons were my most successful. Under the coaching of Paulo Sousa I transitioned from an athlete who floated around 10th place to a professional triathlete who was regularly in the top-5. Though I never won a high profile event, I had several close 2nd place finishes. I won the swim at the Ironman World championships in 2013 and went on to finish 22nd in the pro field. In 2014 I placed 2nd at Ironman Wisconsin with a time that was under the previous course record...obviously 1st place also broke and subsequently holds the course record. Beginning with Ironman Cozumel in November 2011, I won the swim in every Ironman distance race that I entered.

My first triathlon was in 1988, and since then triathlons have been my passion. I have raced every distance from Ironkids to Ironman. While in high school, in addition to running and swimming, I represented the U.S. at the 1992 Triathlon World Championships in Muskoka, Canada. Shortly after transitioning from being a high school swimmer and cross country runner, I turned to triathlons and won my first of many Texas State Triathlon championship in 1993. As an age grouper, I represented the USA at 3 ITU Triathlon World Championship events and qualified for more. After finishing 2nd overall at the USA Triathlon National Amateur Championships in 2003, I began racing as a professional and have competed on 6 of the continents…and am waiting on the Antarctica triathlon!!

Clair Melton has been a personal trainer in Austin since 1997 and has taught mountain bike and trail running classes since 1998. Over the years, she has added certifications to lead ... moreyoga and fitness classes, as well as USA Cycling coaching licenses for mountain biking and cyclocross.

She has the knowledge and experience to help you achieve performance goals in various sports. But she also is skilled in helping non-athletes gain strength, balance, coordination, alignment and fitness.
My simplified training philosophy: 1. Balance - Your body absorbs stress, rests, and recovers. Think of it on the shortest of cycles in your life, your day. You wake, get started, ... moredo what you do, relax, and sleep. Every day, pretty much. Start messing with the formula and you end up paying for it somewhere. Maybe not tomorrow, not next week, but it will catch up. I try to balance the stress that your training has on you with your other life, the life of school/work, social, and free time. Everyone handles stress differently and can handle a different amount.

2. Specificity - A specific sport requires specific training. If you want overall body health, we can incorporate workouts to acheive that. If you want to be at your best for this summer's 40k time trial, well we need to be specific to that. Being specific in our training also helps us be more efficient with your time, getting the most benefit with each mile. You get to spend more of your busy life doing what you want (or need) to do.

3. Enjoyment - What's the point if this whole thing isn't enjoyable? Yes, some days when it's cold and you're lazy maybe you need a kick in the pants to get out the door. Finding what works for you is why I'm here with you. To find how you enjoy training, will keep you out there longer, going longer, and have more fun doing it.
