About Martha Szufnarowski
TriLaVie & Swim Velocity Founder and Head Coach 

I fell in love with triathlon in 2001 when I moved to California from the northeast.  The variety of swim-bike-run training works into a healthy lifestyle and I choose a few races each year to stay motivated and feel young. Though I was inspired by watching the Hawaii Ironman growing up, I never imagined I’d be a triathlete, let alone an Ironman myself! Triathlon enriches my life so much, I want to find ways to share that well-being with others. As a life-long educator, the transition to coaching feels natural for me.  I am passionate about sharing the challenge of triathlon with women of all athletic abilities.  My favorite part of coaching is witnessing the overwhelming joy felt by a new triathlete crossing the finish line for the first time.  There is nothing like it.  Contact Martha
