Holly Marzetti

Holly graduated from Bowling Green State University with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education and holds a Physical Education position in Fulton County, Georgia. Holly has always been an active athlete competing in basketball and volleyball before turning her attention to endurance sports. After running the Honolulu Marathon she was hooked and eventually rose to the challenge of triathlon. Holly has completed races from Olympic to Ironman distance, competing at the Lake Placid and Wisconsin Ironman races. Her new passion for running has also taken her to trails and running 50K’s. She is licensed by USA Cycling, USA Triathlon level II and Youth and Junior certified coach.

Holly wants to introduce kids to triathlon and instill solid fundamentals in all three sports. Her goal is in creating a fun and exciting environment in which kids can learn and train. She teaches the children to compete in a healthy and positive manner, and has watched many improve their skill, ability, and self esteem. She realizes that triathlon may be something they pursue and enjoy for the rest of their lives.  Holly has coached talented young athletes on the USAT Junior Elite team as well as top ranked cross country runners.

As your coach, it’s my job to know the science of training and use it appropriately to help you reach your goals. We aren’t pro triathletes with unlimited time to train. We all have other commitments – families, children, work, school, etc. Together we’ll design a plan that takes into account your real life situation and that accomplishes your goal. Along the journey you will have an enjoyable and exhilarating experience training and racing.
