Coach Details

Ginny Pietila
Club Emerald
Mercer Island, WA
From novice athlete to veteran Ironman I can provide you with the individualized training plan to get you to your goal. I specialize in team orientated training for all distances. Individual "virtual" coaching plans are also available for those not located in the Seattle area. My Ironman teams are focused approximately 20 weeks from IM Arizona and IM Coeur d'Alene. My Sprint, Olympic and Half-Ironman team is a seasonal team beginning in early March and continuing through the summer.
Novice to age-group winner triathletes and marathoners. Stroke instruction including video, heart zone training, periodization training.
I am co-owner of Club Emerald Athletic Club on Mercer Island. I have been actively involved in the sport of triathlon since 1999 both as a coach and athlete. I am a USAT certified Triathlon coach, ACE certified Personal Trainer and Instructor and Heart Zones Cycling certified Instructor. I am a five time Ironman finisher, six time marathon finisher and have completed multiple Half-ironman, Olympic and Sprint distance triathlons. As a 45 year old mother of one I understand the balancing act most "age-group" athletes must handle. My true joy comes from seeing my athletes cross that finish line with a smile on their face and their goal attained.
