    John does a great job working with athletes, adjusting as needed for each individual. He is timely with useful feedback (as in 24 hours or less), and is genuinely interested in helping his athletes develop toward their goals. I've worked with John for 5 or so years, through at least two full iron distance triathlons, and would happily recommend him to anybody looking for a coach that does a great job.

    i have been working with Coach John Houfek for about 18 months. My goal is to continue participating in triathlons for as long as i possible can. While working with Coach John, i have come from the back of the pack to the front of the back in two 6K races in 2021. Coach John's experience with Navy Seals is so inspirational and encourages me to get "out there" and get the workouts done. Coach John responds after each workout to provide encouragement, accountability, and correction when needed. Working with Coach John has renewed my belief in being able to continue to be active for the rest of my life!
