Kurt helped me become a better swimmer by testing my limits and putting me in events nobody wanted to swim, 500, 1000 & the 1650. Perfect for the blossoming triathlete. Kurt's extraordinary coach skills and intuitive mind helped me hone my swimming cycling and running skills and catapulted me into the sport of triathlon. Kurt is an individual who can coach any swimmer, cyclist, runner or triathlete because he has competed at the highest level of competition and distance in each discipline.

I've been following Kurt Madden's philosophies of life and racing since 1983. During these 33 years I have accomplished many National titles in Brazil, 2009 World’s Fittest CEO and a 50-54 World Title. All I have to say is that I was very lucky to meet Kurt Madden and his family one day. Most definitely he taught me to race and I became a Champion.

I had continually seen Kurt’s name on all the leaderboards and so knew his name well. When I saw the opportunity to work with Kurt, I jumped at it but never in my wildest dreams did I realize the improvement I could make with the right coach. I am an experienced triathlete but Kurt took me to another level, propelling me to win most races I entered and training throughout the year without injury. His deep knowledge of the physics of our sport, nutrition, and executional strategies allowed him to communicate convincingly with me, particularly since I knew he practiced what he preached as a high level competitor himself.

Kurt Madden has a lifetime of endurance racing experience and dominates his age group at the Ironman distance. Kurt has continued to expand his expertise through USAT and Ironman training clinics and webinars. He is even on a first name basis with Dave Scott and Mark Allen. Beyond experience, Kurt is very positive and inspiring. As a 60-year-old athlete, I felt Kurt could provide the necessary insight for coaching me. After meeting Kurt in person at Ironman Couer d’Alene, I felt he would be the best choice for helping me win a Kona qualifying slot.
