Meet the Coaches

6784edit.copyALISON KREIDEWEIS is the Co-founder and Head Coach of the Empire Tri Club and a 2x member of TEAM USA – AG National Triathlon Team.  Alison is a USAT All-American, and has competed in both the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships as well as the Olympic Distance ITU World Triathlon Championships (placing 33rd in her age group and 10th American, 12 weeks after giving birth).  In 2014, Alison was named “Best Personal Trainer” in the Northeast, along with fellow Empire Tri Club Coach Chris Mosier on Competitor.com.  Alison is a national fitness expert who has been featured in Fitness Magazine, Sports Illustrated, Fox 5 News, TRI Magazine, The Active Times, Well & Good and more.  She has been competing in triathlons for 19 years, ranging from Sprint to Ironman distance and is a multi-time overall female champion at local and regional races.  Alison has completed the infamous swim from Alcatraz to mainland San Fransisco, the 2.4 mile Ironman Lake Placid swim in 1:06 and frequently exits the swim in the top 5% of the field in triathlon events.  She is an American Red Cross Lifeguard with other certifications including USAT, CPR, First, Aid & AED.  Alison has coached swimmers ranging from beginner to elite in both the pool and open water for nearly a decade.  She has coached destination training camps in Utah, Spain and Martha’s Vineyard and is very excited to be headed to Bermuda!

Marty Munson is a USAT Level 1 coach and a US Master’s Swimming-certified coach. She was a late-onset athlete, coming to triathlon in her 40s. Life hasn’t been the same since—in a good way. She stopped counting triathlons completed—from sprints to 70.3s—at around 30.

In 2013, she did the Manhattan Island Marathon swim as a relay, which was the gateway drug for a new addiction to marathon swimming. She’s since swum around Manhattan solo (28.5 miles), and has completed the Swim Around Charleston, Swim Around Key West, and the 17-mile Rose Pitonof Swim from Manhattan to Coney Island, and many more.

She’s a wellness and communications expert who’s written about health, fitness, and triathlon for outlets including Triathlete, Competitor, Marie Claire, Dr. Oz The Good Life, Prevention, Shape, and O, the Oprah Magazine.
