Tamara Kozulina - CTS Expert Coach

The principal idea of my coaching philosophy is to focus on an individual approach. Each athlete has his own needs, strengths, and weaknesses, which must be taken into account when planning the training process. I believe in efficiency, smart training, and balance. My goal as a coach is to help athletes get the most out of their training so they can reach new levels and achieve their goals.
Before becoming a coach I was a professional triathlete for over 20 years. Competing in over 20 Ironman races, including Ironman Hawaii, World Championship, over 40 Ironman 70.3, and long-distance races all around the world. In 2004 I won ITU Long Distance Triathlon in Sweden. I was multiple times runner up including Ironman Florida, Ironman Austria, and Ironman Wisconsin. As well as a bronze medalist at Powerman World Championship in Zofingen.
