My Clients

As a mother, wife, business owner and World Class Triathlete, I understand the challenges you face in balancing sport with your life. I help clients balance training, working, traveling and family obligations while having fun and achieving their goals. Currently my clients range from age 12 to 70.

Do you want to qualify for a triathlon championship event, the Boston Marathon, set a personal best 5K or compete for the first time? Does your child need a certified trainer to coach them in their ISPE Program? What distinguishes TriCoachDavis is how each program is personalized to meet your needs and time constraints.

Years of coaching experience goes into each plan design.  Elite Athlete and Coach, Susanne Davis, has designed these plans with her twenty years of racing and coaching expertise. Susanne has written the training plans for herself winning 8 out of 8 races last year. She recorded a 9:41 in Kona last year breaking the record for the Fastest American Amateur over 40 years old in the history of the Ironman World Championships. She has helped people qualify for Boston, stand on the podium, hit personal bests and qualify for the Ironman World Championships, 70.3 World Championships and the Olympic and Sprint National Championships. TriCoachDavis’ passion is getting you to the finish line with confidence, a strong body and having an amazing experience along the way!

Hiring TriCoachDavis gives you a team of sport specific experts led by Coach Susanne Davis.  We’ve found that TriCoachDavis clients thrive when given this level of attention. You won’t receive a one size fits all generic program. As Head Coach, I create the details & structure of the program and my team with over 50 years of combined experience and 400 races will help make adjustments. Whether you are a busy executive who has to travel for 5 days, a mom home sick with a child, or the work day just doesn’t have enough time in it, TriCoachDavis will take the guessing work and stress out of your training plan by adapting the schedule to fit your life.

Coaching / Personal Training Package includes:

Maximum Heart Rate Test:

This session will determine your maximum heart rate and current fitness level.  It enables me to build a scientific training program.  Programs incorporate specific heart rate targets for each workout to build a stronger and faster athlete and minimize the risk of injury.


Develop an understanding of heart rate training. Know why you are training at a certain level. Maximize each workout, don’t waste time doing “garbage miles”. Defined heart rate zones help guide you in each workout and race plan to hit your target times and goals. Upload your GPS and heart rate data easily with Training Peaks. Clients receive 40% OFF any TIMEX watch, GPS or HR Monitor.


Daily feedback and consulting with your coach will ensure you are absorbing all of the training.  Ability to improvise schedule with the knowledge of each athlete’s daily training sessions.  I train “with you” in every personal session.  This enables me to read your body language, see your technique and hear your effort in breathing.  Provide instant feedback to build on your strengths and improve on any weakness.


Develop efficient and proper technique in swimming, biking, running. Learn sport specific core and strength routines, stretching and how to fit in cross training. Plan your optimal race schedule to achieve your “A” goal.
