Personal Triathlon Coach
Coming primarily from a team sports background (basketball, baseball, and football), Aaron decided in 2008 to run his first 5k.
About Coach Rhonnda Cloinger
During this run he realized that there was more than long, lonely hours on the road, but also a chance to compete and be a part of a unique community. After completing his first half marathon, Aaron signed up for a beginner triathlete program. In his first year racing triathlons he moved quickly from racing sprint and olympic distances to his first half-iron distance. Since then, Aaron has finished 2 Ironman distance races (Florida in 2012 and Chattanooga in 2014) and is fully involved in the multisport lifestyle. Since beginning training with Knoxville Endurance in 2013, Aaron set a marathon PR of 3:50 beating his previous best by over 20 minutes and also improving his Ironman PR by almost 50 minutes by completing Ironman Chattanooga in 11:38. As he begins to coach for KE, Aaron will continue to work as a KE athlete in hopes of qualifying for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
