Owner of Zūm Racing, Triathlon & Run Coach

Her objective with Zūm Racing is to take those years of experience and passion for endurance racing and use it to work closely with athletes completing their first endurance race to those pursuing world-class levels of performance—helping them all perform at levels they may not have thought possible. Constantly seeking out the latest training methodologies, Hallie is both a USAT Level II Endurance certified triathlon coach, as well as an RRCA certified run coach. She’s also co-author of an article published in Current Sports Medicine Reports, a publication of the American College of Sports Medicine.

Alycia started her triathlon career pretty humbly: just another kid watching and cheering on her Dad as he’d compete. But, after a while, that wasn’t enough—so she decided to join him. And she’s never looked back. Fast forward to today and Alycia’s incredible passion and skill in the sport means she’s been lucky enough to travel around the world representing the USA in triathlon. She even competed with her dad in the AG World Championships from 2008-2015. Her racing efforts right now are focused on competing professionally in the 70.3 distance. Not bad for what started out as a hobby shared between daughter and dad. But lest you think Alycia’s a one-trick pony, she’s also currently in graduate school at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City; pursuing a Doctorate Nurse Practitioner Degree (and a little high-altitude training—no tent in the living room required). With this incredibly busy schedule, you’re right to think Alycia understands the challenges of combining training and racing with family, work, and the everyday stressors of a real life. It’s part of what makes her a great coach. She’s worked with swimmers, runners, and triathletes over the past 5 years—watching and enjoying their progression and improvement lead to the realization of big goals: “I love being able to share my knowledge and experience to help athletes make the leap from simply doing, to actually becoming.”

She enjoys working closely with each athlete and tapping into their unique strengths to help them reach their goals.
