Testimonials

"My brother hired Coach Bob "to take me to the next level".  Those where my brother's words.  I told him I didn't want a coach.  That is, until I started working with Bob.  I am a nurse.  I work full time.  I have a young daughter and a husband.  Somehow, I was able to train at a high level and enjoy my life with them.  Bob helped me knock 17 minutes off my best marathon time and got me to Boston.  In that same year, I was on the podium at Ironman Wisconsin and qualified for the Ironman Triathlon World Championship in Hawaii.  I did this all while balancing my life outside of sport.  Sure, it was a lot of work.  Bob's structure and easy going nature helped reassure me when the big races came around.  I set a personal record in Madison and then again in Kona a year later.  Bob always seemed to be one step ahead in planning my training." Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert

“When I received a slot to compete in the Ironman World Championship in Kona in 2007, I immediately hired Bob to coach me through my training. He tailored a daily training plan specifically for me, taking into account my strengths and weaknesses, while ensuring my personal, family, and work commitments were priorities. His ability to formulate a plan that meticulously balanced my family-life with my training-life, while ensuring I trained sufficiently to reach top form, enabled me to cross the finish line on Ali'i Drive a full 1 hour and 10 minutes FASTER than my previous best Ironman. If you simply want a generic cookie-cutter training program, go somewhere else. If you want a training plan that custom fits your needs, resulting in success that exceeds your own expectations, Coach Bob is the way to go. -- Ironman World Championship Finisher (with PR) Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert

“Bob Mitera's enthusiasm and sincerity is very motivating. He leads by setting excellent examples of high energy levels and his ability to surpass goals. I recommend Bob as a coach!”

“When I met Bob I was not into sports that required any sort of endurance. I have now been racing mountain bikes for about 3 years and even won a few. I would say that Bob definitely was an inspiration to me and has given me great advice over the years.”

“I've been training with Bob for a number of years and this is one awesome guy. If you want to get stronger, faster, and have a better race, then Bob's the one to see. He's always encouraging, always has a smile, always fun to be around, whether on a training ride, a run, or during a race.”

“Bob is awesome! I took CompuTrainer classes from Bob for a little over a year until I moved residences. I wish I could have taken him with me. He is a great motivator with a ton of personality.
