Coach Heather Casey,
CSCS USAT Level 2 Coach

Heather’s background in swimming competitively from age 6 under the direction of Olympic coaches Richard Quick and David Marsh led her to triathlon at the age of 14 in her first relay race. Her passion for endurance sports continued and has been her profession for over 12 years. Heather worked for Alabama State University as assistant strength and conditioning coach for their Division I football, tennis and volleyball teams after receiving her license as a NSCA, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. Heather and Pat founded Peak State Fit from their 20 year combined coaching experience as USAT Level 2 coaches and strength coaches bringing their passion for wellness through endurance sports, functional strength and bike fit together. Heather and Pat offer professional bike fitting & mobility assessment as well as private consultations and specific programs for performance and weight loss for everyone, not just triathletes. Heather is returning for her second year in 2018 as a  Team Coeur racing ambassador.  Heather’s favorite race of all time was hands down Ironman World Championship in Kona 2017!

“It’s just been an incredible journey so far,” Heather says. “Every time I train or finish a race, I learn to love myself even more. It’s after completing those milestones that I realize that there’s no pain that I’m going to face that’s going to be greater than the pain I’ve already suffered at the hands of somebody else. What I’m choosing to put myself through while doing an Ironman is exactly that, it’s a choice.” — HEATHER CASEY
