Meet Your Tri Club Coaches

Coach Colleen Prudhomme

Coach Colleen began the Rockford area Tri Club in 2020 as part of the Forte Triathlon Kids Triathlon Club. Since then, this club has branched out on its own to become the Total Strength Kids Tri Club. Colleen was introduced to triathlon in 2014, and fell in love with this great sport. She found it to be so fun to get to work on three sport disciplines at one time. This makes the sport so interesting and fun, and results in little to no injuries compared to athletes who focus on one discipline only. Collen has completed numerous sprint and Olympic distance triathlons as well as a half Ironman distance and an Ironman triathlon (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and 26.2 mile run) in 2019. She has enjoyed triathlon so much that she wants to encourage young athletes to give this great sport a tri! (see what I did there? 😉). Colleen also is a certified personal trainer, certified running coach, certified speed and agility coach, and a certified weightlifting sports performance coach. She loves fitness, just about any kind of sport, and spending time in the great outdoors.

Coach Josh Sell

Josh Sell proved to be an excellent addition to the coaching team for Total Strength Kids Tri Club. As well as an excellent age group triathlete, Josh is a fun, encouraging coach who knows just how to encourage kids to see what they are capable of accomplishing. Josh lives in Waconia with his wife, 10th grade daughter, and 7th grade son.  He has taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade in Waconia for twenty-three years.  He also has been an assistant high school baseball coach in Waconia for twenty-one years, including their 26-0 state championship season in 2017.  Eleven years ago, Josh caught the triathlon bug and has enjoyed pushing himself to get better and better.  He even managed to win the 2022 Graniteman Series Sprint title! Without question, Josh is passionate about triathlon, is a great athlete, and a great addition to the Total Strength Kids Tri Club coaching team. We are so glad to have Coach Josh on the coaching team!

Coach Gavin Dunne

Total Strength kids Tri Club is so excited to welcome Gavin Dunne to our coaching team! Gavin moved from Ireland to St. Paul 5 years ago with his wife and three children (John 8, Jane 10, and Luella 13). We are so glad they made this big move, because it was then that Gavin discovered the great sport of triathlon. Like most who give it tri (wink, wink), Gavin fell in love with triathlon. He is especially fond of the 70.3 distance (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile swim) and even competed in two70.3 world championships, including one in Finland! That just goes to show you that triathlon can take you places. In 2023, Gavin completed the USAT Level 1 Coaching certification and is in the process of earning his USAT Youth and Junior coaching area of focus. Gavin has seen how participation in sports has helped his kids gain character and confidence and wants to help Total Strength Kids Tri Clubs do the same for our athletes. Welcome, Gavin!

Fun from Forte Tri Club from past years!
