Meet Coach Lauren Vallee

Head Coach

Coach Lauren Vallee has been a professional endurance coach for over a decade. She is a USA Triathlon Level II Coach. Coach Lauren has been mentored by some of the top coaches in the nation along with leaders in the field of sport nutrition and hydration science.

“Success comes from focused, hard work. It comes from a stubborn determination to do whatever it takes to be your best. Just because you were not born with natural talent in endurance sport does not mean you cannot achieve the level of excellence you want.  If you look at my career I was not a naturally talented triathlete. It took years of hard work, and to be fair a good bit of heartache, to get faster and stronger. ” ~ Coach Lauren

In 2019, Lauren qualified for the 2020 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.  She also qualified for the Ironman World Championships in Taupo, New Zealand. In 2014, Lauren was ranked 1st in the USA and 2nd in the world in the W30-34 age group in the Ironman All World Rankings.  She was also ranked 31st in her age group by USA Triathlon, All-American Status.  Since 2011, Coach Lauren has been recognized by USA Triathlon as an All American or AA Honorable Mention athlete.
