Bryan Engstrom is a USAT Level 1 Certified Coach. Bryan got into endurance racing in 2012 as a challenge to himself to get back into shape after college, work, and family had taken priority. Bryan was a 3-season runner (cross country, winter track, spring track) in high school, but like so many people he fell off the wagon searching for that work / life balance. A triathlon training course at his local YMCA sparked his interest. Several months later he was competing in his first triathlon (Olympic), and placed third in his AG. He has been a competitive age group athlete ever since.
When he’s not racing or training, Bryan works as a civil engineer in the area of material testing. Together with his partner Sarah, they have 5 kids ranging in age from 13 to 7. At races his cheering section can not be missed. Bryan continues to race having learned to balance work, family, and training. Please see the adjacent list for a few of Bryan's accomplishments.
