Coach Jamey Yon is a former professional triathlete who’s been competing, training, and coaching for 25 years. Leading by example—he completed his 20th Ironman competition last October at the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii—his regimen includes nutritional guidance, strength training, swimming, and biking.
