General Info

General Info: Alan Kipping-Ruane is a high-performance triathlon coach, exercise physiologist and micro-entrepreneur. He’s the founder of TriGuy Multisport Coaching, which offers personal triathlon coaching services, triathlon training plans and Ironman training camps for triathletes looking to reach their triathlon and Ironman potential. Created in the Navy in mid-2009, and officially launching in 2011, TriGuy Coaching trains 10-15 athletes around the country and continues to grow.

Alan was born in Pennsylvania, moved to Virginia aged 17 after joining the United States Navy and now lives back in Pennsylvania.

Before following his micro-entrepreneurial drive, he started out as a swimming coach and lifeguard. He was also training supervisor of a helicopter combat squadron looking after enlisted rescue swimmer development, physical conditioning and tactical operations. He’s held other roles in coaching, customer service, and consulting companies, and regularly helps athletes understand the role of training (exercise physiology, kinesiology, anatomy, nutrition, biomechanics and sports psychology) through his USA Triathlon and Multisport University webinars.

Familiar with training and racing, Alan has an inimitable, deep knowledge of exercise physiology, triathlon and endurance sports. As a First-Generation college graduate, he holds a Bachelor of Science from The Pennsylvania State University in Kinesiology and is both a Certified USA Triathlon Level 1 Coach and Certified Youth & Junior Triathlon Coach.
