What You Will Learn In This Episode: 

Jen Rulon knows what she’s talking about when it comes to working out your body! As a seven-time Ironman triathlete and USAT Level I and Crossfit Level I Coach with a Master’s Degree on Exercise Science, Jen has quite the background to be more than a good coach for anyone looking to do triathlons. While her resume speaks for itself, this episode takes the time to dive into the science behind training for triathlons and how an everyday Joe can get into this sport. Jen likes to remind triathletes that strength training is just as important as your swim, bike and run.
