Years of experience together with the best in education and coaching certification make the strongest combination of Triathlon Coaches in the city.

USATriathlon Coaching Certification is the Gold Standard in the industry.   Why train with just any old coach?  Train with the coaches you know have the certification, education and experience!

We are also taking on a limited number of clients for run training.  Thinking about your first Crescent City Classic or you want to be a TOP 500 FINISHER?

Now is the time to sign-up!

Rick has run 25+ marathons and we are the only 2 area USA Track and Field Coaches and 2012 Boston Marathon qualifiers!  As you may know we are having a successful season of run training from the cross-country, the half and full marathon and with our Boston-bound training group.  Join us and speed-build for the next 6 weeks leading up to the Rock n Roll Marathon or Half-Marathon, the Boston Marathon, the Crescent City Classic or any of the races leading up to the Fall and Winter distance running season.

See what some of our clients are saying…

“Last October I found myself halfway through marathon training, following what I thought was a well designed plan but feeling pretty banged up and not improving fast enough to reach my goal of qualifying for Boston 2014. Having worked with Jen and Rick in the past, I knew they would be able to help. So with only 3 months to go, they agreed to coach me the rest of the way. Within a few weeks the minor injuries I had started to go away, and by December I was seeing real improvement in my performance (Including a half marathon age group win along the way). The difference, they as professional coaches provide verses self coaching, is that they have an objective viewpoint and they have the knowledge and experience to coach me better than I could ever coach myself. The workouts they designed and the intensities they specified were tailored specifically for me based on my abilities and goals. I was definitely challenged and had to complete a lot of hard work, but I was never overtrained. The results speak for themselves. A 9 minute PR! and yes, I got that Boston qualifier too. 
I will definitely be working with Jen and Rick again the next time I want to improve at an endurance sport”

“I ran a Personal Best by 18 minutes from TEN years ago!  I cannot say enough about Jennifer Novak and Rick Montgomery, the Best Running Coaches in all of New Orleans, you guys!  My hat is off to them!  Their training program put me at a fitness level I never thought I could achieve — and I did it without getting injured!  (Had problems with that in the past ten years).  Love Love Love my running  coaches!”

— Eve Kazik


“I recently ran the 2011 Marine Corps Marathon shattering a personal record .This would not have happened without the expert knowledge and training I received from Rick and Jen at Kona Fitness. They designed a program that allowed me to unlock my potential. I am trusting them once more to guide me to my next goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon! You need to stop what you are doing and Run to the Kona! “
—David J. Lapene

We are limiting our “training team” to give you the best personal coaching available.
