GET TO KNOW YOUR COACHES
Head Coach & Owner - Coach Celia Dubey - I have always loved being active and playing sports like basketball, volleyball, soccer, & tennis. It was not until after college in 1995 when I ran my first 5K that I found my passion for running. In 1999 after a knee injury my orthopedic surgeon recommended I take up triathlon as the cross training could benefit me and I have been hooked ever since. I love the social aspect the most of training as I have made true life long friends in this sport who inspire me every day to be a better athlete and person. After many years of working sales and management in the wireless communication industry, I left corporate America and used my entire 401K savings as a down payment to buy Total Fitness Health Club & Spa. I am now living my dream to own and run a health club. I do all the marketing, programming, and manage the day to day operations of the club. I get to teach fun group exercise classes, I get to train clients privately whether their goal is to lose weight, do their first triathlon or become a world champion triathlete. I won the husband lottery, as my husband, Joel is my biggest supporter and is there for me every race cheering me on and helping me in any way he can.
