Mom, Professional Triathlete, Coach & 4x Ironman Champion

Welcome from Jessica Jacobs

I became involved with sports at a very young age. I am the youngest of eight children and have fond memories of playing outside for hours in the country fields of Bellevue, Wisconsin. Running and biking everywhere across God's green earth was simply a way of life for a little country girl that grew up next to her Grandma and Grandpa's farm.

I raced my first Ironman in Switzerland in 2003 while serving as an officer in the U.S. Army. I fell in love with the sport, retired from the military, and became a professional triathlete in 2007. With the support and encouragement of my family, my Army-officer husband, beautiful 12-year-old daughter and active nearly 2-year old son, I am blessed to share this journey with you.

Customized Coaching: Limited Slots Available

If you are seeking a coach for this season and beyond, I am opening up just a few slots for committed athletes who are looking for more than a pre-packaged plan placed into a training software account. I only believe in one way to successfully conduct my coaching practice, and that is through one-to-one, personalized coaching and attention to your needs.

Whether you are looking for an experienced mentor to guide you to your first finish line, or you are training for Ironman and other long-course events, I tailor my coaching for each athlete. It's a comprehensive approach. If you are ready to begin your own journey, email me at and let's discuss your goals!

Fueled by my amazing sponsors
