Coaching with Celia Dubey

Celia has always loved being active and playing team sports like basketball, volleyball, soccer, & tennis.  It was not until after college in 1995 when she ran her first 5K that she found her passion for running & joined The Leukemia Society to train for her first marathon.  In 1999 after a knee injury her orthopedic surgeon recommended she take up triathlon as the cross training could benefit her and she has been hooked ever since.  Celia loves the social aspect the most of training as she has made true life long friends in this sport who inspire her every day to be a better athlete and person.  After many years of working sales and management in the wireless communication industry, she left corporate America and used her entire 401K savings as a down payment to buy Total Fitness Health Club & Spa.  Celia is living her dream to own and run a health club. She believes her purpose in life is to help people ENJOY their pursuit of living a healthy active life. She does all the marketing, programming, and manages the daily operations of the club. Celia teaches group exercise classes, she is a USAT certified coach and for over 20 years has been coaching people of all ages whether their goal is to lose weight, do their first triathlon or become a world champion triathlete. Celia is a 6 time National Champion, and is the current National Champion in both Triathlon & Duathlon for females 45-59.   Celia has been named an All American by USA Triathlon 13 times, has been a member of Team USA more than 12 times and has earned the Gold, Silver, & Bronze medals at The Duathlon World Championships. Celia believes she won the husband lottery, as her husband, Joel is her biggest supporter. He helps run the club and is there for her every race cheering her on and helping her in any way he can.
