Erik Rankin
Grim Reaper Fitness

Plans for all distances at VERY competitive prices.  We offer online, one on one coaching with access to our coaches on an unlimited basis.  

We hold a triathlon training program for new participants every February for 16 weeks that culminates in racing the sprint distance Tri-Shark Triathlon.

All mulitsport events.  Personal Training and virtually any program you can come up with!  We can also work with kids and female specific racing.

Myself and my other coaches are all accomplished triathletes in Central IL.  We have numerous finishes at all distances.  I have personally won the Inaugural GRITS (Grassroots Illinois Triathlon Series) trophy for 2011.  I have qualified for USAT Age Group Nationals and will be competing in Burlington Vermont this year.  

I am a certified fitness trainer through ISSA, a level 1 coach for USATF, and will soon be completing triathlon coaching certifications with ITCA and USAT.  Professionally I am a college professor at Illinois State University.  At Illinois State University I help to coach the ISU Tri Team (Tri-Birds)!

This year I am sponsored by 2XU (Brand Ambassador), Honey Stinger, and Tri-Clips.  I currently race for the Bloomington Cycle and Fitness Triathlon Team (as Director).
