Laura Bruck-Renzelman – Golden, CO

Triathlon Coach,  Lifelong Endurance
NASM Certified Personal Trainer
USA-Triathlon Level 1 coach (pending course completion at the end of January)


As a swimmer and runner growing up, Laura discovered triathlon at the age of 11, and by the age of 14, she ranked 3rd in her age group at the Ironkids National Championship. Laura continued to swim and run competitively through high school and ran cross country and track at American University. After graduation, she returned to triathlons as a fun outlet for her competitive spirit and eventually finished her first full Ironman in 2003 while in graduate school at Northwestern University studying art history. Laura took a long hiatus from triathlons when her kids were young, but in 2015 she decided to get serious about competing again. She hired a coach, who helped focus her training, and watched her times quickly improve. Laura started regularly making the podium and even winning some local races. At her first full Ironman after coming out of her semi-retirement she qualified for the Ironman World Championship, a dream she held since she started doing triathlons. Laura races with the Vixxen Racing Team, an all-women triathlon team, based in Boulder, CO.

Laura recently moved from Dallas to Golden, Colorado with her family, which includes her husband, two boys, and three dogs. In Dallas she taught art history at the University of Dallas, but decided the move to Colorado was the perfect opportunity to turn her passion and experience as a runner and triathlete into a career helping others achieve their goals.

Coaching Mentality:

Working towards a big athletic goal, whether it be your first sprint triathlon or your 10th Ironman, should compliment your life. It’s an opportunity to connect with like-minded people, challenge yourself to dream big, and find an outlet from life’s everyday stresses. Laura has learned from experience that success takes patience and consistency, faith in the process, and courage to step outside your comfort zone.
