David Glover, MSE, MS, CSCS - Endurance Coach & Race Director


My passion is helping my clients achieve their dreams in triathlon and other endurance sports through training plans, consulting and teaching. I currently reside in the triathlon mecca of Boulder, Colorado and train and work alongside the world's best triathletes and coaches.


I still vividly remember my first triathlon in 1995 – a sprint-distance race in Atlantic Beach, Florida. I had recently completed radiation and surgery for cancer while active duty in the U.S. Navy so I wanted to prove to myself that, even though I had cancer, cancer did not have me. I nervously lined up at the starting line with my swim wave, but when the starting gun went off, all of my fear and anxiety disappeared. I finished in the middle of my age group that race, but I was instantly hooked.


In my third year of triathlon with my friend Phil's influence, I discovered the Ironman® distance (2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-mile run) and have now successfully completed 28 races (8:51 PR) including competing in the Ironman Hawaii World Championship and winning 5x Iron-distance events overall. In 2007, I was selected for the Vineman Hall of Fame and my profile appears on the back of all the finisher's medals from that year. Overall, I've competed in more than 100 triathlon events.


I am currently certified by:

I have degrees from:

In addition to the numerous articles and training guides I've written, I published Full Time & Sub-Nine: Fitting Iron Distance Training into Everyday Life, a book about my experiences at the Naval Academy, surviving cancer and my rise from age grouper to an elite level Ironman-distance triathlete - all while working a full time 9-to-5 job.

Triathletes we've trained:
" jean_davidI've got nothing but great things to say about David... If you or anyone else you know needs a coach, I wouldn't look any further than David. He was worth every penny and then some."
- Jean Woodrow, Arlington, VA
Triathletes we've trained:
" Krista: I did not have the chance to mention today that I appreciate all your help.

As I looked back over the past two years, I basically attribute a change in lifestyle to saving my life.   I realized I was on track for continuing to add weight and increasing risk of a reduced lifestyle if I did not make major changes.

While I will never be your star client who wins or qualifies for a championship race, having a coach allowed me to instill some routine into my training making it a lot less likely that I will revert to my old ways. Your training plan really helped make me faster, and, more importantly led me to a better quality of life."
