Combining the best time-tested and cutting-edge practices, Tri-Hard coaches Jason Gootman and Will Kirousis coach driven triathletes in the Boston area, throughout New England, and around the world. Tri-Hard athletes include in their ranks numerous qualifiers for the Age-Group World and National Championships (including a World and National Champion), for the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii, and for the ½ Ironman World Championships in Florida. Jason and Will regularly present seminars throughout the Northeast and the U.S. They have spoken at international conferences hosted by the National Strength and Conditioning Association, at coach-training programs sponsored by USA Triathlon, and for over five years in a row at the annual Multisport World Conference and Expo. As two of the three founders, Jason and Will also co-direct the annual New England Triathlon Symposium. They are frequent contributors to Triathlete magazine, Inside Triathlon, and New England Sports magazine. Their training advice has also graced the pages of the Boston Globe, the Forbes magazine website, and the Ironman website.

Group Motivation: One of the key benefits to training and working out with other athletes as dedicated as you are, is the constant motivation and camaraderie. All of our members, regardless of their background or fitness level, enjoy sharing their knowledge with others and work as a group to motivate each other. We all work hard to make sure you get results and HAVE FUN doing it.
