Grim Reaper Fitness, a Bloomington-based training and racing multisport club, has announced that Washington resident Carey Weaver has become a coach for 2015.
“Carey is a great addition to our coaching staff,” said Erik Rankin, the company’s founder and co-owner. “He is passionate about teaching. He has taught and coached young people for many years, as well as working with adults.”
Weaver, a Level 1 USA Triathlon Certified Coach, has competed in over 100 triathlons the last 15 years. He was recognized as a USAT All-American in the 55-59 Age Group for 2014, and has qualified for USAT Age Group Nationals the past three years. He’s also completed 30 marathons and ultramarathons, including two 100-mile races.
“I have been active in sports all of my life,” Weaver said. “Challenging my mental and physical limits motivates me to learn and improve my performance. Coaching is a natural way for me to share my passion with others as I help people achieve their fitness, health and weight loss goals.
“Helping others on their journey to a healthier lifestyle while they create lifetime memories from their experiences is very rewarding.”
In addition to holding a bachelor’s degree in physical education and a master’s in education, Weaver is a Certified Life Coach. In 2014, he began training with Grim Reaper Fitness.
“I joined Grim Reaper Fitness last summer and have thoroughly enjoyed training and racing with the members of the club,” he said. “The coaching services I received from GRF last summer helped me achieve my PR at nationals. It is a privilege to join the GRF coaching team.”
